I feel like I'm starting a little late, but I'm joining in with the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along. I decided I wanted to use a Moda Sunkissed layer cake and I wanted to be able to cut 4 wedges from each fabric. After some experimenting, I found I could do this if I made a slightly smaller block- 10" finished.
I printed my templates from EQ7. I like that the templates have the blunted points which help in lining up patches (I need all the help I can get!). Although I'm ending up with tiny little fabric bits all over my sewing room, and tracking them all over the house. Oops.
I'm about halfway done cutting the patterned fabric wedges. And then I have all the solid fabric wedges and triangles to cut. It sounds daunting, but I'm thinking it will go a lot faster when I'm not working with the layer cake pieces and can start cutting strips.
Here's my tentative layout for the quilt.
