Who Wants to Flitter Through a Kaleidoscope of Butterflies Link Up?

Cathy wrote last week she's starting a quilt using some of her butterfly fabric in a kaleidoscope pattern! Many other kaleidoscopes are floating around the Internet. Wouldn't it be great to share them all and publicize the need for butterfly habitat improvement, too?

We think a link up might be fun. Very casual. Any information about butterflies, release events, planting, festivals is great. We'll also share photos of quilts we're making with butterfly fabric. Or any kaleidoscope or butterfly quilt. Quilters are an inventive group. :-)

Again, here are the parameters:
1. Celebrate butterflies and other pollinators with photos of butterflies, pupae, or larvae in your area and/or the plants they feed on AND/OR
2. Use butterfly fabric OR
3. Use any kaleidoscope or butterfly pattern (Don't forget those fabulous designs by Paula Nadelstern!)

Let us know if you're interested in the Kaleidoscope of Butterflies link up starting February 1.

Enjoy the day,

  2. Well I'm just about to begin a Kaleidoscope - when my fabric arrives after leaving Texas on the 14th and apparently now in Chicago - hopefully any day now it will be on my doorstep!! I would go with the link certainly with my kaleidoscope and I do have a wonderful piece of butterfly fabric into the bargain. Is this going to be a monthly over the year?

    1. Your fabric will get to New Zealand sooner than I ever will. We are thinking monthly for this year. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    1. I hope you can, Maureen. Your quilts and flowers are always so joyful, it would be great to see how you interpret butterflies.

  6. I have some butterfly fabric that I'm unlikely to use and would be happy to send it to anyone that would like some! I'll publish it on my blog on the link up! Great idea to highlight butterfly conservation Ann :)
