Scrappy Kaleidoscope Table Topper

Marry past and present by piecing this quilt with Civil War reproduction fabrics from the Stafford County collection by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics. An unlikely plaid creates an abstract circular illusion around the center Kaleidoscope block. Chose high-contrast prints for the asymmetrical borders to give your quilt a scrappy quality.
