Calypso Kaleidoscope

Made progress on my 2015 Kaleidoscope BOM! Over the weekend I finished the borders surrounding the center medallion. Changed from the original pattern with a picket fence border, I added triangles to both ends to add a little more interest and fun! 

Next is to design new corners as well. Here is a line drawing I am playing with...

Last night I finished squaring lots of HSTs prepping for the setting triangles that will be added next. My Patchwork Math book came in handy to make them 8 at a time! That was a breeze and they went together so much faster. Yea! Now to sew them together, this evening if I find the energy. Below is a graphic of the original pattern...

2015 Calypso Kaleidoscope BOM by Quilt Addicts Anonymous 
It was another hot summer day in Chico, triple digits again. Without air conditioning in my studio, it makes for some early mornings, starting between 5 and 6 am to take advantage of the cool morning temps. Looking forward to some cooler temps with schools beginning this week. It's been hazy with smoke while Cal Fire planes taking off frequently throughout the day from the Chico airport and banking over our house on their way to area fires. So scary. 

Enjoy what's left of your summer
or winter, depending on your location on the planet! 
Tot ziens, Jo
