Kaleidoscope patchwork ...

I've finally finished this Kaleidoscope patchwork sample. Initially begun a few years ago, the last triangle was finally added.

In total 7 different fabrics were used: 3 patterned, 1 stripe, 3 plain.

Unfortunately there was only sufficient fabric for the sample hexagon - made from 6 triangles (as below).

7 strips were made randomly, then joined together to form a triangle. 6 triangles were then joined to form the hexagon above.

It was a "surprise sample" begun to see what happened when patterned fabric was formally patchworked together. The result was very inspirational!
