Positivity QAL 2023 - Sponsors and Prizes

Happy Weekend to you! 

I have added a new page - Positivity 2023 QAL. See top left of the blog page. It contains important links and these will become active/live as we move through the QAL.

I am working on the Positivity QAL blocks in preparation for the Quilt Along, beginning on May 28, 2023.

If you wish to participate in the QAL, but live outside the US, you are welcome. We are thrilled that you are joining us.  We urge that you find a worthy cause locally. Please do not ship internationally. It is expensive and there is no guarantee when or whether it will reach its intended destination.  Although you will not be eligible for the  Level 2 Prizes, you can still win one of the Level 1 Prizes.

If you have questions, please ask and I will respond in the comments. 
I will share the detailed schedule (including linky party dates) next week.


Angela has announced that Orange is the color for May. Here are my RSC blocks for May.

  1. What happy orange blocks! So glad that you are doing another positivity QAL.

  2. Love those orange blocks! Me too on the Positivity QAL! I’m excited!

  3. Love how the white/beige pieces help to make the orange sing.

  4. I think orange and you get along really well together! I purchased a magazine this week, something I seldom do, and guess what, your happy smiling face was there looking out at me. It was McCall's Quilting featuring your Mardi Gras Magic.

  5. Great orange blocks! I like that pattern.

  6. I'm liking those leaf blocks, Preeti! You've found some lovely and generous prize sponsors, too. The RSC blocks are great in orange - I bet you have great plans for them!

  7. Beautiful orange blocks, and they give me energy.

  8. Thank you for the dedicated QAL page,I can't wait to start sewing these fun leaves!
    Lovely orange blocks too, such a happy color!

    I love the orange blocks, they remind me of an orange tabby kitty peeking around a corner!

  13. Preeti, forgive my question but is the positivity quilt for a particular pattern...the plus signs? I was wondering if we can make any quilt that's cheerful and bright. Thanks

    1. Yes, the Positivity 2023 QAL is for a particular pattern incorporating the Leaf Block (see picture in the blog post). There are two layouts. I am working on the fabric requirements and cutting directions. Will share before 5/28/23. Yes, you can make any quilt in any colors. We do suggest that the quilts are gender neutral (avoid juvenile fabrics and avoid too much pink), because we don't know the recipients. But make whatever your heart desires and someone will love it. I am thrilled that you are joining in in the QAL. Hugs.

  14. Those orange blocks are fabulous! I love them! What pattern/block is that? I

  15. Sounds like a great roundup for Positivity!!
    your orange blocks are beautiful!! such bright colors... love!!

  16. Hoping to make a positivity quilt for this year! Such a great cause....

  17. Pretty greens in your QAL blocks, and I always find orange to give energy to a design.

  18. Gorgeous RSC blocks! Love your little tease with the leaf block. I love Kaffe so whatever you're making I know it's going to be pretty! So proud to sponsor a prize for your upcoming QAL. What a positive impact this is going to make on the world! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss!

  19. Love them all, but those orange blocks are fantastic. They look like a kitty peeking out the window! Thanks for sharing with us on MM. Those are fun prizes for the Positivity QAL!!
