Kaleidoscope Quilt

 Back in July I began this project on my Nundle girls weekend at The Cottage on the Hill. Slowly I have chipped away at it, and I have recently put the blocks together. It is a pattern from Cluck, Cluck, Sew, and  has come together well. The red/white spot adds a dash of fun and I will bind in this too. What do you think? 
I seem to have a bit of yellow happening in my sewing room at present...either I am feeling spring like or is my view of sewing a tad jaundiced??? Hopefully it is the former.
These fabrics followed me home from the most recent Nundle visit...already planned for a project...I did not realise that they were the new range by Carrie Nelson, the creator of the Schnibbles projects I have been stitching...silly me.   Look, I have bought some more yellow!
