Wonky Kaleidoscope Complete!

Hooray!  Another finished quilt!

I'm sure you recall what a beast this one was.  Not that it was that challenging to do, it just seemed that nothing went right.  Once I decided to embrace all the imperfections, I ended up really liking it.  But, I can't keep everything I make!  This one was a belated wedding gift for my good friends Brent and Rowena.  I dropped it off last weekend, and they both seemed to genuinely appreciate it and Rowena especially loved the color!

I backed it in the same white with red ivy material that I put on the top and bottom of the kaleidoscope section to make it rectangular.  It was a duvet cover I bought from Value Village.  Yay for thrifted material!

I quilted it with wavy horizontal lines.  I figured the rest of the quilt wasn't straight, so why should the quilting be?  :)  The binding was a black and white floral print from the quilt that was hand sewn.

As annoying as this quilt was, I'm happy with how it turned out and even more pleased with how much the new owners love and appreciate it.  It makes all the time and frustrations worth while!
