Over 500 blocks for your EQ!
The Kaleidoscope add-on product installs 500+ blocks right into your EQ Block Library. You’ll get a huge variety of styles: Stars, compasses, pinwheels, flowers, eight-pointed stars, and more. You can choose from star-point corners or square corners—each produces a different secondary design effect.
Create fascinating designs!
These blocks are ready to recolor and set into layouts in your EQ software. You’ll be amazed by the designs you create! There are enough blocks for hundreds of projects without reusing a single block!
Each block has 8 precisely marked units, making even the most complex blocks easy enough for beginners. Sew each unit. Join the units and the block is done! Or skip sections as you sew to simplify your unit. These “sew-fast” foundations are pre-numbered and ready to print from EQ in ANY size.
Can you sew these blocks?
If you can, then you can sew these too!
Print the patterns onto Quilter’s Newsprint sheets using any printer or copy machine. Sew directly over the newsprint and then tear away the paper to reveal clean and precise lines!

“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.”
“Yeah! my kaleidoscope program came and I love it…love it. Andrea, I am so looking forward to the lessons and already did the first one you have posted. Thank you.”
“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.”
