Fiber crafters Rosenthal and Bardes present a gallery of inspiring quilts and helpful tips in this guide to hexagon-based kaleidoscopic quilts--commonly called one-block wonders. These hexagons are mixed, matched, and combined into striking pieces that transform fabric in unexpected ways. The authors, along with numerous collaborators, show a variety of finished quilts as well as the fabrics that were used to create them. Methods for cutting and piecing are glossed over in favor of extensive coverage of "auditioning" fabrics for placement in a finished quilt. While some of the missing information is self-explanatory, beginners may be frustrated at having to look elsewhere in order to get started. VERDICT Quilters familiar with making kaleidoscopic quilts will find plenty of inspiration; those new to this style will want to consult Rosenthal's earlier book One-Block Wonders for instructions.--Library Journal, 11/15/2017
