F-2 Kaleidoscope

I have been distracted by a number of things, but I am moving forward, slowly, on my Jane Stickle quilt. This one is F-2, called Kaleidoscope. I printed out the paper piecing patterns from the Dear Jane software published by Electric Quilt.
Helpful suggestions: Cut your pieces a bit large. Sew to the end of the patch corner that will be in the center, but NOT into the seam allowance. Care (and careful pinning) is needed to get the points to be close in the middle. To attain perfection in getting 8 points to meet is not a realistic goal. I am satisfied with how mine came out. “Done is better than perfect” as Brenda says!

You blocks look very nice! I really need to get back to my Jane.

They look awesome. I certainly can't tell from the photos that they aren't perfect.

I have made a few kaleidoscope quilts but nothing as fancy as yours. I love your pinwheels so sweet & old-fashioned!

Excellent blocks! I love the fussy cutting on the one.
