Kaleidoscope Quilt

My wonderful little brother is currently in the Philippines serving a mission. He JUST passed his year mark. My mom had a stash of fun boy fabrics on hand, so I decided to make a quilt for when he comes home. He'll go & live in Utah after his mission, so he needs a big, warm quilt!

I saw this Kaleidoscope pattern on Cluck Cluck Sew and I fell in love! But it's a LOT of cutting!


Here's my top pieces all cut and ready to be sewn together:


That's 168 green & white triangles, 168 different fabric kites, and 42 circles. Phew! That took forever! I think I bruised my hand from all the cutting :)

Off to go start the sewing process!!
