Marilyn Foreman has been quilting for over 20 years and loves designing pieced quilts that look complicated yet include basic piecing techniques.  She lives in a suburb of St. Paul, MN with her husband and three kids and started her pattern company called Quilt Moments in 2006.  As a busy Mom she finds it challenging to make time to quilt so she uses every moment she can find…..thus Quilt Moments.  Over the past 12 years she has published over 50 patterns, a book titled “Kaleidoscope Symphony”, filmed a Craftsy video class called “Quilted Kaleidoscopes” and has been published in several quilt magazines.  With a background in analysis, she enjoys the challenge of making her pieced patterns as versatile as possible so they all include a variety of sizes and fabric options.  Whether it’s including easy 4-patch kaleidoscopes made from a large print in the block centers, rotating simple block units made with batiks, using unique ways to show off panels, or using the popular Twister tools (she’s co-owner at TwisterSistersDesigns.com, the home of the twister tools), you will find all her techniques addictive and fun!  Read more about Marilyn and see her designs and blog at www.QuiltMoments.com

Dazzle your friends with this stunning quilt that features beautiful bright batiks. It may look complicated, but it is surprisingly simple to make. The fun secondary stars that emerge in the design are created by simply rotating the large star blocks to group colors together. It is a great way to use charm packs, layer cakes, fat quarters, or scraps.
