Can you sew these blocks?

If you can, then you can sew these too!

Introducing Kaleidoscope Collection by Andrea Bishop — with over 500 kaleidoscope style foundation blocks for EQ5 & EQ6.

Kaleicoscope Collection Categories Include:

Easy to install
The CD installs these blocks right into the EQ5 or EQ6 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 EQ5 or EQ6. Enough blocks for hundreds of projects with no block used twice!

Print any size
These “sew-fast” foundations are pre-numbered and ready to print from EQ5 or EQ6 in ANY size.

Easy to sew
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.

Creative to design with
Enlarge for medallions, group for samplers. Any combination works together perfectly. Great for use with EQ6’s new Rotate Fabric tool.

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 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.
