Pigs Might Fly! Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Talk to the Pig mini quilt by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon Quilting

Show Your Wings Blog Hop

When Carol from Just Let Me Quilt announced there was a new blog hop coming up in February, I did my usual mental dance with myself. Mature Me said “Nope, you’ve got too many more urgent important things on your plate”. Optimist Me said “But I’ll just do something little…. I’ll squeeze it in”. Mature Me said “Pigs might fly!”. And Stick It to Mature Me Me said “Oooooh….. pigs might fly – that’d fit the theme! Hahahahaha”.

The thought of doing a Pigs Might Fly appliqué motif based on my balloon ...

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

Love with a Twist Twin Quilt Assembly Instructions from Clever Chameleon

Love with a Twist free Sew along at Clever Chameleon 2019

I know I said the Balloon Dog appliqué was going to be the next step in this sew along….

But if you’ve been quilting for any length of time, you’ll know that sometimes projects have their own agendas. And, so it is for this one. The floppy-eared dog appliqué pattern is actually very nearly finished (yay!). But it has been pipped at the post by finished instructions for the twin sized Love with a Twist quilt construction. So let’s roll with it – let’s get the last of the technical details for this sew along out of ...

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 ...

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 ...
