KALEIDOSCOPE – the very word promises surprise, magic, change, and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of color and shape into a complex, coherent, and unique whole. This slide lecture traces Paula’s evolving quilt series in which the multifaceted, luminous, and random nature of a kaleidoscope is explored on a quilt’s flat surface. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
