Overview

Paula Nadelstern brings you the definitive book on kaleidoscopic quilts. She combines the symmetry and surprise of a kaleidoscope with the techniques and materials of quiltmaking. The color and complexity of Paula's quilts invite the reader to return again and again. Filled with actual images of kaleidoscopes, the book covers the elements of design and techniques used to create the multifaceted, luminous, and random nature of a scope's interior on the flat surface of a quilt. Paula writes clear, straightforward instructions with wonderful humor. She focuses not on rules but on guidelines that will assist you in the creation of successful designs.

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.
