Kaleidoscope Times Two!

We had our guild meeting last night, and since I am in charge of the Block of the Month I presented my blocks (we've been doing two a month - one easy one and a harder one). The Challenge block this month is called a Kaleidoscope block.  I was very pleased with the response - all the patterns were claimed and several people wanted one after they were gone.  I did think it was a rather striking block, myself!
Included with the pattern was enough fabric for the corner squares, which gives everyone a reference for fabric choices as well.  I can't wait to see what the returned blocks will look like!  
Then, for show and tell I brought Cleo's Kaleidoscope, and I got lots of great comments on that as well!
It was a fun evening!  Today I worked on an interesting project.  What do you do when you have a much loved comfort quilt that it wearing out?  Well you have someone replicate it, then convince someone else to quilt it - with the old quilt inside!  Here is proof that the old quilt is inside the new one:

This is Puff - as you can see, this is an interesting quilt, it's not square, and it doesn't have a binding either, it's all satin stitched. The fabric is quite thin and wearing through, so I thought it would work to quilt in inside the new quilt.

This is the new Puff, satin stitched onto a square of muslin.  My friend did this part of it, and I was recruited for the quilting.  This will be a regular rectangular quilt with binding. I hope it will still be as comforting when it's done!  I'll post pictures of the finished quilt tomorrow.  I had planned on doing an overall design on it, but ended up changing my mind because of the bulk of the quilt - and it made it even better than my original plan!
