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 ...

Hunter, Archer, Angler and Trooper from Sew Preeti Quilts

Krishna Janmashtami is Lord Krishna's birthday and is a significant festival for the Hindus.
How significant, you may ask?
It is a bank holiday, making it official that it is a day of feasting, temple visits and celebration.
My father was just 53 years old when he passed away. It was the day of Krishna Janmashtami.
For my family, the festival is no longer associated with Lord Krishna. It will always be dad's death anniversary.

A new quilt

Today is February 14 and most of us celebrate it as Valentine's Day but for the families who lost ...

Don't eat the yellow snowballs and two sweet videos from Not Afraid of Color


flowering snowball blocks
For my Rainbow Scrap challenge this year, I have three sets of blocks going each month in the chosen color. Gem stones done with improv techniques, Chandelier blocks a la StichTherapy, and flowering snowballs.
8  8" blocks
 I got my ordered templates this week, and hurried to make a few Snowball blocks to show.

I also worked on my  Valentine top, and finished the top Friday. Time to quilt it now!

It's fun to use my turning cutting board, and the templates, to cut up scraps making order from chaos.
It's going to be fun ...

Allegiances from StitchinGirlMary's Blog

Number 4, Bobby Orr! 1972

I have a confession to make. Even though I live in Ravens/Steelers territory, I am an unabashed Patriots fan. My husband is the reason. Well, his dad actually. His father is from Gloucester (pronounced “glaw-STAH), Massachusetts and infected his son early with the love of the heartbreaking teams of New England. Terry was Bobby Orr for his first few Halloweens.

These past 20 or so years it has been a different story to be a fan of the New England teams. Now we get to gloat. But we do it carefully — so as not ...

Color Master of the Month: Berry Valentine from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Color mood board

Oh, it’s February, the month of love. 💓 Whether you have a Valentine's date or not, we can always appreciate all our loved ones in our life. I think my favorite part of Valentine’s day is the excuse to go out for dinner (I can’t be the only one, right?). I usually try to pick out a place that I never been too in the city of Miami, because the city looks stunning at night with all of the lights reflecting from one tower to the next and the riveting nightlife. Besides the food, I love to ...
