Kaleidoscope Quilt

My Kaleidoscope quilt, finished in time for fall!
This quilt was a part of the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along with Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy.  I'm WAY late in finishing this, but happy to finally have it done!  And it is perfect for fall -- the colors remind me of the mix of leaf colors against a blue sky.

The fabrics are Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi, mixed with Kona solids.

At 36 X 60, this is a bit of an odd sized quilt.
But it can either live on the back of our living room couch,
or hang on the wall near the bedrooms -- in either place, it will be a perfect fit!
Quilted in an all over meander, in cream.
I almost used green -- maybe next time!
