Requires EQ7
Windows Software

Item #: A-KALEI

Requires EQ5, EQ6 or EQ7 software. Over 500 kaleidoscope style foundation blocks that anyone can sew! Print the blocks in any size!

Kaleidoscope Foundations

Easy to install

The CD installs these blocks right into the EQ Block Library so you’ll be using them in seconds.

Over 500 blocks

Huge variety of styles: Stars, compasses, pinwheels, flowers, eight-pointed stars and more.

No drawing skills required

These blocks are ready to recolor and set into layouts in EQ. Enough blocks for hundreds of projects without reusing a single block!

Print any size

These “sew-fast” foundations are pre-numbered and ready to print from EQ in ANY size.

Two corner styles for variety

Choose from star point corners or strong diagonals—each produces a different secondary design effect.

Twelve free web lessons

Join the club! The Kaleidoscope Collectors will use EQ5/EQ6/EQ7 and this Kaleidoscope Collection CD for 12 lessons. Learn to modify a block, try out quilt design variations, draw from scratch, and learn to rotate fabric to complement the Kaleidoscope design.

    “I have made my first Kaleidoscope block and I love it! I am using metallic snowflake fabric in blues and white. I like how i can change the colors in the block until I like the look. There are two blocks in the Snowflake category that I am using.”

    “To Andrea: These kaleidoscopes are fabulous. You have an exceptional talent. And the best part is that you’ll make the average quilter, much like myself (!) look like a quilting wizard after we produce some of your beautiful creations. It’s been a while since I’ve been so inspired by the creative potential of a project using a simple, foolproof quilting technique.”
