kaleidoscope pattern out of mattress batting

The top picture is the small section of the mattress batting that I used my digital camera to make a square. If you look closely, I made the red and yellow the predominant color at the bottom of the frame. There is a reason for that. I use two programs to make my kaleidoscope patterns. I use Photo Shop Elements to clean up the contrasts and color and to crop and I use Print Shop Pro by Broderbundt to make the kaleidoscope pattern. What I do in Print Shop Pro is copy, flip horizontally and join. I then group these two panels and copy and this time I flip vertically and join to the first group. Now you see the pattern, I then copy the panel till I fill the whole page and get the design I want. The nice thing about these designs is that there is no right or wrong way to use them, they are your designs to use in any way that you want.
