Always Choose Tropical: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Always Choose Tropical colour scheme by Clever Chameleon

Always Choose Tropical

I am slowly working through a huge backlog of blog-relevant news and quilty happenings! I can’t believe July has been such a huge month, it certainly wasn’t forecast that way. Or maybe I just wasn’t paying attention! Anyway, we’re halfway in, and I still need to post two Love with a Twist patterns (aiming for one on Friday), an unboxing post for Island Batik (next week), and a number of other smaller things I’m messing around with.

But before all that, I really want to give you the lowdown on the Chameleon ...

Another 15 seconds of Fame for the Chameleon

Chameleon Capers – Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Finally, a Chameleon quilt in the works!

You’d think, with my love of all things critters and quilting, and an imaginary (shhh, he doesn’t know) Chameleon friend, that I should have/would have done a chameleon-flavoured quilt by now. You’d think. But it’s been over two years now since the Chameleon first took the internet by technicolour storm, and still no chameleon quilt. Not even a chameleon table runner. Awww poor unimpressed Chameleon!

Well, all that is about to change this month. I have until the beginning of July to complete a small quilt that has ...
