The 'bucket skill' of the month on the online Cyber Quilters groups is kaleidoscopes or 'stack 'n' whack'.  I decided to join in, and make a block or two to for another pillow to coordinate with The Graceful Garden quilt.

The 'spinning blades' are cut; and now I will cut the background.  Which way do you like it best – against a dark background (yes, I will 'kaleidoscope' it -- right now, the blades are just lying
on the uncut black/gold fabric), or with the lighter color?

Those blades were cut from the same part of the printed design of the fabric.  I cut 8 squares, then cut the squares in half diagonally and used one side for one kaleidoscope, and the other side for the other kaleidoscope.  Funny, how different they look!

Okay, the jury is in -- but this is not a democracy, and I may or may not have gone with the popular vote.  ;-)  (It was close... very close.)  Here are the blocks, ready to be put on pillows.
