Fall Quilts Flower Pot fabric Honeybun quilts

$5 in October – the Kaleidoscope 2 Honeybun Quilt Pattern

There is nothing spooky about October’s $5 pattern of the month. It’s Kaleidoscope 2 – a Honeybun quilt (made with assorted 1.5″ strips). Here it is, all dressed up in my upcoming Flower Pot collection arriving to shops in April 2022. It has a very warm & inviting look to it in this fabric, don’t you think. I’m wondering if it might need to become part of my living room decor…

The Kaleidoscope 2 quilt is pieced with a log cabin type of assembly with something a little “extra.” One of the things I love most about this pattern is that it looks great in virtually any fabric collection. Remember the original in Christmas Morning fabric seen here? Here’s what you’ll need to make it – specific info included on the mockups of this post in Flower Pot fabric.

Materials Needed for this Kaleidoscope 2 Quilt Pattern:

Finished block: 7″ x 7″

Finished quilt: 64½” x 78½

  • 2 Honeybuns (80 strips 1½” x WOF)
  • OPTIONAL: 3 fat eighths – yields up to 6 replacement strips – perfect for replacing any Honeybun prints that closely match the background or are otherwise unwanted in the layout
  • 3½ yards background fabric (I used Moda Bella #9900 98 in these mockups)
  • 1¼ yard border fabric (SKU 5164-14 “Glossary” text print in taupe or SKU 5163-21 “Garden Dot” in ivory-taupe)
  • ¾ yard binding fabric (SKU 5167-15 “Garden Stripe” in clay)
  • 5 yards backing fabric (I’d pick SKU 5160-14)
  • 73” x 87’’ batting

    Vanessa, I love this quilt pattern and it looks spectacular in your new Flower Pot collection! Will you be selling this as a kit?

      Hi Mary!

      I won’t be offering this as a kit so you shouldn’t definitely reach out to your favorite shop so they can preorder it for you 🙂

    Hey Vanessa! I am a regular follower and purchaser of your patterns and fabric! Love it all.

    there is a type-0 in the first sentence; where it says Flower Pot will be arriving to shops in April 2021 – in the first paragraph. Figured you may want to know. Can’t wait to use my Christmas morning fat quarter bundle and my Folktale fat quarter bundle!!
