I've been watching the blogosphere twittering away for some weeks recently. Esther Aliu has drafted the pattern for a quilt thought to be made in about 1790, which she has called Love Entwined.
There was much talk about her new design before we got a look at it, and I did think- hmmm , don't think I need another quilt in the works.
However, once she released the first part (completely free by the way, monthly for 18 months) I did step back and think- "How can I not?".
Sooo, I've finally finished dillydallying about the colours and stitched the centre mariner's compass block.
I did change the yellow from my first selection, it wasn't quite right. However, I'm very happy now.
I do need to applique the centre to the soft green and cream , and then applique some tiny little circles around to finish.
Nearly ready for the next instalment.
