My latest quilt pattern, Sweet Lizzie, is currently available as a kit through Keepsake Quilting.  The pattern is also available from me through my Etsy shop.  The quilt uses RJR Fabrics Afternoon in the Attic, which is full of flowery, romantic pastel fabrics.  The pattern also includes the master foundation patterns as a second option to foundation-piece the three- and four-inch variable star blocks and the three-inch snowball blocks.

Unfortunately, it has just come to my attention that there is a typo error on page 8.  Obviously, this is one of the biggest fears of a pattern designer!  I do ...

Thankful Wreath Quilt with Sweet Peas from Clever Chameleon

Give Thanks Always wreath quilt concept by Clever Chameleon

Tuesday and a half ago, I said I was starting on a thanksgiving-themed wall quilt in Blossom Batiks – Splash fabrics. It’s getting there…..

Blossoms Batik Splash fabrics by RJR at Clever ChameleonWhen my samples of Blossom Batiks – Splash fabrics from RJR arrived in the post, the first thing they reminded me of was sweet pea flowers. Probably because my hubby’s Gran used to grow sweet peas every year, in colours not dissimilar to these. Blue-green leaves and two-tone purple flowers.

And as it turns out, this was a very helpful association to have. Because, as well as the October Beary Colourful bears, I had promised RJR ...

Blossom Batiks Splash: Colour Inspiration Tuesday and Link Party from Clever Chameleon

Blossom Batiks Splash color scheme by Clever Chameleon

Teal with red-violet and blue-violet. Now I’m inspired!

Have you seen these recent fabrics from RJR Fabrics? Today’s colour board is created from this really beautiful subset of the current RJR Blossom Batiks – Splash collection. Aren’t they glorious?

These colours are consuming a lot of my attention at the moment. Hopefully you’ve caught up with yesterday’s release of the tenth bear in the Beary Colourful BOM…. and saw the blue-violet RJR fabrics used there.  Of course, September’s bear was red-violet. And November’s will be teal. But that’s not where my current obsession ...

Beary Colourful BOM: Special Treats Blue-Violet Bear from Clever Chameleon

Blue-Violet Bear of Special Treats appliqué by Clever Chameleon

Healthy Choices Red-Violet Bear made his debut last month…… but what of his non-identical twin, Blue-Violet Bear? Of course, he must be October’s Bear….. the Blue-Violet Bear of Special Treats!

Blue-Violet Bear comes straight after Red-Violet Bear, just like dessert after a healthy meal! You know you want him! He says that after you have taken Healthy Choices Bear’s advice and been good to your body, you should also ignore him and spoil yourself occasionally.

Special Treats Bear is the reminder that “sometimes foods” are actually okay to have sometimes…. after all they are not called “never foods ...

Florabunda! Melanie Testa, RJR a bit of magic from Terificreations's Weblog

We get by with a little help from our friends from Terificreations's Weblog

A friend moved over the weekend. And I helped. Oh if only my brain could recall the commercial where the kid says, “And I helped”! She’s a bit further away, but closer to another friend of ours. Depending on traffic they’re about 90 minutes away. This is New York, there’s traffic. Eh, whatever. Friday afternoon we… Continue reading We get by with a little help from our friends

COVER QUILT ALERT: Snowfall in American Patchwork & Quilting December 2017 & Giveaway Winners from IVORY SPRING

Happy Friends — Christmas is coming, and that’s a fact! :-)  I am very happy to share with you the news my Snowfall quilt made cover on American Patchwork & Quilting’s December 2017 issue!  This is my second time having a cover quilt this year in American Patchwork & Quilting’s magazine.  I cannot be more excited!!
