If you were the lucky winner of last week’s Kaleido-Ruler contest, you can use that ruler to make Golda because Golda is a variation of a classic 6-inch Kaleidoscope block. Twenty years ago in 1996, the two Kaleido-Rulers (#8641 for 2- to 8-inch blocks and #8642 for 6- to 16-inch blocks) were the first From Marti Michell multi-size tools. They and the Kaleidoscope ABCs book have been consistent best sellers!
People love Kaleidoscope quilts because they can create the illusion of curves with straight-line sewing!
Plus the variations are endless. The book has detailed instructions to make 14 quilts and dozens of quilts for inspiration.
Quilters love our Kaleido-Rulers because the angles to cut at the base of the Kaleidoscope triangles need to be 67-1/2 degrees! Who knows how to cut that? You do when you own the Kaleido-Rulers! As a bonus, you can also use the ruler to cut exact size corner triangles for the blocks.
