Quilters Lead Pieceful Lives.

DOUBLE VISION

Another wall hanging made with multi-colored fabric. The fabrics are dyed in different colors across their widths, so that when pieces are cut, they subtly change and blend in the finished piece. This piece will be donated to the United Way of Lake County for their annual fundraising auction. Click to see other views. I couldn't decide what to call it, so I solicited suggestions from the core group of people that access my blog. Well....there were 24 entries submitted by 17 people in the "name the quilt" contest. Lots of "kaleidoscopes" and "spinning" themes. The winning name was submitted by Nancy Coolley. I think it really captures the essence of the pattern.

And....if you want the to hear the song by Foreigner,

Beautiful. As for the name, how about "Looking At the World Through Kaleidoscopic Glasses" I know, I know - it's wordy. But I do see a pair of eyes or glasses.

Thanks. Now I have that song in my head, and I didn't even click on the video :)
