This is one of those things that looks so complicated but nothing could be further from the truth. And the quilts are amazing.
To make a kaleidoscope quilt, you only need fabric with a large print and 6 print repeats. Each block is a hexagon and uses 6 triangles.
If you want to make it bigger, then get enough fabric for 12 print repeats or any number in multiples of 6.
If you like this technique and would like to make a quilt there’re lots of pattern books available.
You don’t really need a 60 degree ruler. Learn in 2 minutes how to use a regular ruler to cut 60 degree triangles before you start.
If you plan to cut at 60 degrees a lot you may consider investing in a 60 degree ruler.
But first watch how easy it is to make this quilt.
