Blue Monday: Kaleidoscope Quilting

Recently, Spouse and I went out of town. And what does any self respecting me do when she's cooped up in a hotel room with a small baby?

That's right. She' quilts.
My mom wants me to make her a quilt and she had picked out some Peacock fabric for it, and what do I do? I slice it into repeats, line up the various points of convergence within the design in all six layers, cut it into identical stacks of 6 layer stacks, then chop them into equilateral triangles.
I personally find it quite amazing how very much diversity there is in just one fabric.
I personally love the kaleidoscopic affect. Don't you?
