Paula Nadelsternís gorgeous and trippy kaleidoscope quilts are that rare thing, a really new category of quilts. Her pieced quilts are as intensely chromatic as stained glass and as intricately patterned as lace. In "Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Art of Paula Nadelstern," Apr. 21-Sept. 13, 2009, the American Folk Art Museum presents the first major survey of Nadlesternís sensual artworks.
