Kaleidoscopic Marbles was designed and pieced by Paula Nadelstern and quilted by Marlene Hiltner (40" x 40") [2015]. It is another one of Paula's kaleidoscopic quilts where she allows the fabric to do the work, while using easy piecing to assemble the quilt.

Thank you so much for all of your puzzles. This is my escape time! When I can't sleep at night, I go to your puzzle page and rework them. I always choose the 100 piece, non-rotating option.

I am such a fan of Paula's quilts. She makes them look so hard, but when you break down her technique, not only is the piecing easy, but she lets the fabric carry the load.

This is one of my new favorites.
