Love Entwined: Part 7 is Launched

What a beauty! the final flower vase finishes the centre square; what a great block to end the year with!
So here we are, it's been 7 months since you started the Love Entwined journey and this month sees you completing the centre square. It's so rewarding to have completed the centre square of this very special quilt. The square top progress shots have been super impressive - each has its own style and each is stunning in it's own unique way. So far, you've really stamped this quilt with your personality!

I think these 7 months have gone by quickly. I had a lot of difficulty finally choosing the right fabrics to use (too much choice) initially, but now my mind is made up and I'm finally ready to start sharing my own progress with you next year.

This quilt is motivating. From the very first day it's inspired quilters to take up the challenge to make it. Each month the enthusiasm to complete each block has grown. What is it about this quilt?

The more you do, the more you want to do.

This month we finish the final flower vase in the centre square and when the square is completed, we add on the 1st border which is on mitre. All in time for Christmas. It's such a hectic time of year for all of us, I think many of us will print out this month and pick up again after Christmas - but then again I thought the same thing last year with my BOM at that time... and you all proved me wrong! So maybe you'll be fast to finish this month?... we'll see!

This is where we are up to:
Can you believe the centre square is completed this month? 
and we continue on January 15th with Part 8

  5. Thank you for all your work on a wonderful applique project!
    I've been sad to hear your tale of problems with your new Bernina. I purchased one in September, and find it a dream to sew. After seeing your practice with the blanket stitch, I think you should have your dealer check it out. Mine insisted on an hour lesson before I could take it home, and it helped with some of the different features on the machine. I hope you and your machine can find a good working relationship soon.

  7. Hi Esther
    I am having trouble getting my yahoo groups to work, and may need to request you send me the files in the new year if I can't get yahoo groups up and running. It is a beautiful quilt.
