LE Part 2 beginning

The second installment of Love Entwined was released on Sunday and I have been busy prepping and stitching ever since. For those of you not interested in this project I am afraid my blog posts are going to be pretty boring as I plan on chronicling my progress here.

One of my favorite parts of quilting is selecting the fabric but sometimes it can be the most challenging. I was really torn about the triangles around the center compass. Should I use 2 fabrics in an alternating pattern or just one fabric that is pretty busy.







I went back and forth for quite some time and finally decided on this.




Another difficulty was taping the pattern together as the pattern was printed on several sheets of paper that were downloaded on the computer. Though Esther does a great job of providing accuracy in her patterns and has excellent registration lines, I must have made a tiny error in my cutting and taping as I ended up just a smidge (less than 1/16 inch) small. But it should work fine and here it is on my light table awaiting the background placement.





And finally a little stitching has begun.




I am really enjoying this project and welcome you join me in this journey.

Happy stitching!

It's beautiful! I shall enjoy looking over your shoulder on this journey, but there is no way in heck that I would attempt it myself.

Don't worry about boring us - your work is so lovely there is no chance! I am in the wings with this quilt - might start it later. It certainly looks to be all-consuming :)

Can I invite you to add this post to the specific Love Entwined Linky? This post is too good not to share!

This is one of my favorite of the compasses posted. Thank you for the process - it will help as lot as I move further into LE.
