Kaleidoscopic Kites Free Quilt Pattern

Kaleidoscopic Kites Free Quilt Pattern I am very excited to share my latest pattern with you, Kaleidoscopic Kites! This pattern is great for everyone, but especially for beginners. Each block has only 4 pieces and if you are familiar with chain piecing, you will make quick work of assembling these blocks.

The final quilt will measure around 63" x 72". Let's get started!

1. Cut fabric. Below are fabric requirements, piece sizes and number of cuts.

Small Color Squares Fabric Requirements Size Cut
Light Yellow Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 6
Light Brown Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 8
Light Pink Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 12
Light Orange Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 14
Light Blue Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 10
Light Green Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 3.5" x 3.5" 6
Large Color Squares Fabric Requirements Size Cut
Dark Yellow Fat Quarter or 1/4 yard 6.5" x 6.5" 6

Finishing Up Fabric Requirements
Binding 1 yard    
Backing 4 yards    

2. There are 18 different block layouts. Follow the below diagrams and sew squares together using a 1/4″ seam allowance. This should leave you with a 9.5″ square.

Tip: I find it helpful to make piles for all 18 block types, and then sew them together in sets. Be sure to keep track of your block letters (A thru S) as you will need to know that for the quilt top assembly in Step 3.
