Vintage Cat: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Cats

I don’t think it’s any secret that I am a cat person. Perhaps not as passionate about them as when I was a child, but I still love having a friendly cat around the house to admire my quilting and to test my quilts.

This week though, cat art seemed to specifically catch my attention all over the place.

It started with a picture of a mummified cat I saw on Kathryn Kerr’s site for her ...

Love with a twist button

Luckily there is one thing that is 100% mine to show though. I have been working on the first balloon animal appliqué for March. I will say, I have fallen in love with this next block of Love with a Twist…. a Kuddly Koala!

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.

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.

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 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.

So let’s roll with it – let’s get the last of the technical details for this sew along out of ...
