With just a few weeks to spare before the deadline of my local
quilt guild’s (Courthouse Quilters) challenge, I managed to put
together an entry that ultimately won 2nd place! The challenge
rules stipulated that the quilt contain “10” of something-
anything to celebrate the guild’s 10th show at the Prallsville
Mills coming up this October 5-7. It also needed to have bits of
red and tan to represent the mills.
My inspiration was the large round millstone I took a picture of
at our last show in 2010. Also having recently purchased
Kaleidoscope Kreator 3 software, I created round, 8-sectioned
kaleidoscopes form various images I also took at the 2010 show.
Some kaleidoscopes were much more obvious than others – but that
was the fun part – watching the guild members try to guess what
images/scenes could have possibly made the various kaleidoscopes.
I will post the original images on my website. Can you guess
which ones correspond to which kaleidoscopes?
Join us at the10th Quilts at the Mill Quilt Show in Stockton, NJ
