1 of 8 | Kaleidoscope Blocks

Morris Star Block of the Month | Jenny Kae Parks | Runtime (7 min)

First, Jenny shows how she creates plastic templates, and a trick for helping them not slide around on the fabric. Then she talks about how to prepare the fabric and shows tracing the templates onto the fabric and cutting out the patches. Once the patches are cut, it’s time to start assembling the block, and Jenny shows how to sew and press the patches, pinning as needed to keep the center points together without losing those points.

    I am having trouble cutting out the A template. It seems to me that there is not enough fabric to get 48 pieces. I watchd the video to see joe to cut it,but that did not help. Can you offer me some advice? Thanks in advance.

    I have my templates my strips cut and wish jenny would put more detail how to lay the templates if I rotate the template on the strip I can get 12 on ea strip but i’m afraid of cutting them out like that for fear of not able to sew them together does she keep the temp face up and straight across or does she keep the temp face up and turn so the top is rotated

      Hi Melanie,
      The paper diagram templates for these blocks are included along with the pattern so they are not available for download.

    I need another 7 inch strip of Willow Boughs taupe to get enough for all of the block A’s. Also, although not covered in the video, there are a couple of things that are important in making this block. When joining A to B, they must be offset slightly so the straight edges are even after sewing. And after sewing , the block needs to be trimmed to a 9” square.

    How do I get more fabric?
