In Kaleidoscopic XXXIX - Right and Wrong Sides Together, the left kaleidoscope was pieced traditionally by sewing the right sides of the fabric together. The segments of the right kaleidoscope are identical to the left, but are pieced with the wrong sides of the segments together. A single layer of black tulle covers the right kaleidoscope. The quilt measures 45" x 85" and all of the fabric was designed by Paula with the exception of the batiks and tulle. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.

Illuminated Star was designed and pieced by Paula and was quilted by Claudia Clark Myers and Jessica Torvinen. (35 ¼” x 35 ¾” - 2015)

Paula writes, "I like to work in a series because, inevitably, you ask yourself lots of “What If” questions. The perk is that the questions you ask get more complex but the answers get simpler."

"Illuminated Star is the third of three small quilts I made based on the traditional Thousand Pyramids quilt pattern. All three are included in my new book FABRICADABRA: Simple Quilts, Complex Fabric."
