TOPIC: Show #403 Kaleidoscope

I've wondered about that too. Perhaps all he was going to say was that if your strata doesn't turn out long enough for all your pattern pieces, you can simply make another set that's 12" long or so. That's what I think I would do.

I also noticed that for the "nose" piece, a very small strata would do. I think fat quarters could be used just for this first piece!

I watched my KK DVD twice the other day while knitting and did not see anywhere how to adjust the strata that Ricky spoke of. I sent Ricky an e-mail but do not expect a response until he returns from the Gal. islands. I am so jealous would love to have gone but other things on the agenda. Will post his response when it comes.

I love working with beads and have been for quite some time. But have to admit I usually am making an amulet bag or knitting with them rather than putting them on quilts.

Thanks, Peg. I think I have some of those beads in my stash! Didn't know what to call them.

Just watched Ricky's show and am juiced to try a Kaleidoscope now. Those quilts in his montage were wonderfully creative and so so beautiful. Thanks Ricky for coming up with yet another great concept.

Peg, I love the idea of using crystals in the spider web for dew drops, too. What are E-bead droplets? Are they an oval bead or something?

I just watched the show and really enjoyed it. The quilts were so beautiful and it was fun to see the creative process. Loved the music, too. Judy in Torrance

I will have to look at my KK video tomorrow to see what changes to the strada Ricky is talking about. I have been working on my Feb. BOM this evening. I have all the four patches made and hope I can finish it tomorrow.

Going to bed it is later than I thought it was.

The show was nothing but "AWESOME" I'm sure down the road when I make one while picking fabrics as I do I'll be one that says but I don't like mine!!!LoL but I'll work with it as I go along. I love all the kaliedoscopes quilts done by all of his students he taught in class and his new sound track was beautiful to. I'm learning way to much to quickly,I can't make them all when I want because I wanna make them all now!
Thanks Alex & Ricky for another great show.

ready for quilting 03 Feb 2009 23:38 #31885

I have my Kool Kaleidoscope on my quilting machine ready to be quilted but cannot make up my mind what I want to quilt on it. I went to sleep last night thinking of what to put on it.
I am leaning towards a spider web with a spider quilted someplace within the web. My quilt is on my profile under show and tell. I am either using black thread or silver to quilt it with. Maybe some crystal on it to represent dew drops on spider webs.

I have the DVD and love it... I have been collecting my fabrics ready to get them going....

In the show does he mention how to make changes to the strada ... he said he would discuss it in the DVD but never does. Just wondering cause the question has been driving me nuts...
