Candy Corn Kaleidescope Quilt

Happy Halloween! Here’s a festive quilt for you to stitch.  We’ve made ours with the CGRDBSKL CREATIVE GRIDS 45 DEGREE KALEIDOSCOPE DOUBLE STRIP QUILTING RULER if you don’t have this ruler you can use a similar 45° angled ruler (or template plastic to make a template to cut your triangle segments).

Here’s our quilt hanging in the shop for October. We used  BELLA SOLIDS  to make our quilt Two colors  9900 79  Ochre and  9900 60 Ivory.  Scroll down for our mini-pictorial tutorial.
