Esther Aliu's Love Entwined

Center of Love Entwined from Esther Aliu's site.

Have you been keeping up with Esther Aliu's pattern for this 1790 Marriage Coverlet?

Happy Appliquer's center

Esther's inspiration was a poor black and white snapshot
in Averil Colby's 1956 book Patchwork

The pattern is an amazing feat.

See her introduction here:

Tiny's Hobby Corner
And so are the quilts in progress....

Aubert France

Esther's Pinterest Page is a good place to keep track of what's going on:

Ineke Van Der Molen showing off her version in Supergoof's
living room

Narelle Birchall just sent a picture of her finished quilt.
Quite an accomplishment for both pattern designer and stitchers.
Congratulations!

That's not Supergoofs Love Entwined (she hasn't finished the centre yet, as far as I know), but somebody else's, showing it at a quiltshop.

Hi Barbara, the last photo is taken of the beautiful Love Entwined made by INEKE VAN DER MOLEN. I took this photo during a workshop in my living room.

Oh thank you fact checkers around the world. I will give Ineke credit right now.

Supergoof said...

Thank you Barbara!

Is this the quilt that Ester wanted to find the original, not believing that it was in hiding! When she did find it the owner did not want to show it etc. So she made her own?

I wish I had known about this. I am so disappointed I missed out on doing this gorgeous quilt 😢
