Love with a Twist Kuddly Koala Balloon from Clever Chameleon

Kuddly Koala appliqué for the Love with a Twist series by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon

Welcome to March!

Let’s begin March with a ‘Bang”! At least, we probably would if this was a real balloon koala. It is so hot here today that balloons taken outside would not last very long at all. Luckily, March’s first balloon animal for the Love with a Twist quilt along is of the more permanent variety and totally chilled. “Kuddly Koala” is not going anywhere, having found the perfect spot to hang out on my Love with a Twist quilts.

Also impatient as he is cute, Kuddly Koala introduced himself early on Tuesday. But now we have ...

Love with a Twist Signature Block from Clever Chameleon

Love with a Twist signature appliqué block Lasting Love Balloon by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon Quilting

It’s only the 24th of February and I have completed this month’s planned Love with a Twist February blocks. And even better, the patterns too! Wonders never cease!

Today’s Love Balloon pattern is the second option for the large centre block of the Love with a Twist throw size quilts. You’ll also need it for the twin size quilt. It’s an easy block, I think the fastest so far. It only has two fabrics and no extra details to embroider.

Grab your pdf pattern download below, take a quick look at the assembly order and ...

Love with a Twist Balloon Pig from Clever Chameleon

February’s first block for the Love with a Twist quilt along is “Happy Hog”, the prancing balloon pig. It seems only fitting to do the pig block next as the first block of the new Lunar year.

Happy New Year of the Pig

Happy Hog appliqué pattern by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon

Too cute and ready to play, today’s pig balloon appliqué is one of the centre block options for the throw size versions of Love with a Twist. Of course, you will also need to collect Happy Hog if you are making the full twin-size quilt. In the latter, she struts her stuff in the top ...

Love with a Twist: Balloon Poodle from Clever Chameleon

Balloon Poodle appliqué by Dione Gardner-Stephen at Clever Chameleon

Balloon Animal Block 1A – Pretty Poodle

Love with a Twist 2019 quilt along at Clever Chameleon

Finally, it’s here – the first appliqué for the Love with a Twist quilt along! You will find the free downloadable balloon poodle appliqué pattern within this post. And a short pictorial on how to put it together too.

You know how I have always had every intention of this quilt along being a little relaxed and random in its delivery?…. Well, that is still so. But I didn’t really intend for it to be quite this long between the throw-size quilt construction instructions and the release of Block 1A. Apologies! But with ...

Love with a Twist Throw Quilt Assembly Instructions from Clever Chameleon

One of the three options in the Love with a Twist free quilt-along at Clever Chameleon in 2019.

Let’s get this party started!

Last post I announced my latest big idea. The BOM…. or perhaps it should more accurately be the BOF? (approximately block of the fortnight)….. available here for 2019. Whatever we are going to call it, let’s get this very casual and fun quilt-along off the ground!

In this post you will find my first lap-size quilt top constructed pre-appliqué and a pdf download of the instructions so you can start yours too. Of course, it is not necessary to pre-assemble your quilt top before you applique the blocks. You can definitely choose to ...
