Calypso Kaleidoscope

Calypso Kaleidoscope is almost a flimsy! Yea!!! Today I finished the corners and added them to the center field. It takes up my entire 8 ft square design wall! Right now it measures 98 x 98. Once I add the final black borders it will finish at 106 x 106. 

A computer image of the original pattern...
This project started a year ago as a 2015 BOM with Stephanie at Quilt Addicts Anonymous. As usual I took my own path and ventured out of the crayon box ;0) It started with a few changes in the center, then a picket fence border turned into a zigzag. Came up with a paper pieced yellow cornerstone to add to the zigzag border.  From there, changes to all of the remaining blocks in the corners of the medallion. Pulled from my stash. The original is made with Moda's Calypso Batiks and Bella solids in black. The original is a beautiful medallion or it would not have drawn me in.

We had wind and wild weather that started in Red Bluff and headed our way this afternoon so I shut down. Tornado and so much hail they used a snow plow to clear I5. Thankfully, it dissipated by dark and Chico was not affected. 
Enjoy the rest of the weekend
Tot ziens, Jo
