The quilt top for Love Entwined 2 is now completed. To recap, my concept is to” un-entwine” the strands of love in its very phases. The sense of loss and grief that permeates our lives in the time of the pandemic was a trigger for this very personal journey through 30 years of my life. What emerged was a very modern interpretation of a pattern based on a vintage quilt dating to 1790.
I often use birds and buttons in my applique pieces and Love Un-Entwined was a perfect canvas for both.
Lastly, I added a 1/4″ flange in teal for a break in the “purpleness” of this piece. Now this goes into quilting pile!
Working on this piece has been sheer joy!
Happy quilting all!
