Crazy quilter

There has to be a certain level of insanity that comes with being a quilter. Here I sit, working on a very detailed applique quilt top, and what do I do to relax? I go and ponder the possible layouts for the kaleidoscope quilt I want to make next.

Now, I am not making a fully pieces tiny pieces style kaleidoscope quilt, instead I am cheating on my design. I picked up some lovely fabrics that have large decorative patterns on them and I am using those as a base for creating a pattern similar to the center on this kaleidoscope quilt.
