Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The kaleidoscope was invented in 1816 by Sir Davis Brewster and was originally intended as a design tool for artists, though it later attained wider use as a children's toy. Nadelstern has used the kaleidoscope as a take-off point for the breathtakingly gorgeous quilts featured in this book. This is a personal book dedicated to one purpose: teaching techniques for making kaleidoscope quilts that the author had to learn through trial and error. If, along the way, that same reader is entertained by Nadelstern's wit, so much the better. Recommended for all textile collections.
