It's All Tiffany's Fault!!!

Yes, it's all the fault of Tiffany of This Crafty Fox.  There I was, enjoying reading blogs while taking a break from quilting on the tumbler quilt.... and here goes Tiffany blogging about joining Don't Call Me Betsy's new Kaleidoscope QAL.

Now... I've seen others posting about joining this QAL but Tiffany posted the fabrics she's thinking about using... Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2...

....which is sooo lovely that I went to Don't Call Me Betsy's web site and saw her sample block.

Then I went to the QAL Flickr group and saw all the lovely fabrics people are going to use...  okay... I was hooked!

I was debating which fabrics and/or scraps to use when the last of the Memorial Day weekend fabric sale fabric arrived in today's mail.

Guess what I decided?   Yup... gonna use this fabric for the Kaleidoscope QAL!

Interestingly, the white background really isn't "white white." Here is a photo of the fabric with Kona solid "Bone"... left over from the Bottled Rainbows QAL.

I will examine the fabric further before deciding...   decisions, decisions, decisions!

Thanks, Tiffany!

In case you might be interested, Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy has posted the fabric requirements here.


  1. Love your fabrics!
    I've never done a QAL, and this looks like a good one for a first-timer. I think I'll look through my stash and stop at the fabric store this weekend. Thanks for the info!

  2. lol I'll glady take the blame for this one! hehe. Love your fabric choices! I think I switched mine to "rainy days and mondays" - but I still have a few weeks before cutting instructions arrive to decide :)

  3. Ooo, the blue patterns are tdf!!! I'm a blue gal, you should see my kitchen. I followed your links and enjoyed the show!

  4. Sounds wonderful. Your fabrics are great. If I didn't have so much going on right now I'd join. Hugs

  8. Maybe it will be all your fault now if others join in the fun. I just signed up for the a Zig A zag QAL (button on my blog). Looks like it will be a fun one too. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
