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 ...

It is a new year and at Quilt Addicts Anonymous, that means we have a new Block of the Month pattern to reveal! I am so excited to bring you Supernova, a nine month BOM available in TWO colorways!

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

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 ...

Happy New Year, Happy New BOM!! from Clever Chameleon

Love with a Twist free 2019 BOM at Clever Chameleon

I’ve had an idea! I’m elated, inflated and just a little bit twisted up with excitement ….

Situation normal then! As you know, I am not usually short of slightly twisted ideas and quilty enthusiasm. But I have had a hard time settling on a new BOM to replace the Beary Colourful Bears. There are so many possibilities, but nothing that quite grabbed me until now. The bears were so much fun and a hard act to follow.

So, I’ve been musing over this quandary for several months, with a mental list of criteria I wanted my 2019 ...

Classic Meets Modern Finale! from My Quilt Infatuation

As hard as it is to believe, we've been quilting along on our Classic Meets Modern quilts for a full twelve months, and it's time to close this baby out.  If you've kept up, all of the blocks are finished and now they just have to be put together.  Easy peasy!

I just couldn't help myself.  I actually finished my quilt right after putting my filler blocks together back in November.  I'm so glad I did since I am still on doctor's orders to rest my neck.  I absolutely LOVE how this quilt turned ...

My First Block Of The Month… Do You Remember It? from Seams To Be Sew

It seems funny to me that it’s been four years now since I offered what was my first block of the month. They were these very cute dolls from Graphics and Graphics. It was called Little Treasures. I’ll show you some of the patterns in that set in this post for those of you not aware of it… I’ve often said how much I love seeing the patterns created, part of the reason I do my block of the months the way I do now is so that I can see them be done.
