Love Entwined

There are so many beautiful historic quilts that have been recreated by various designers. 
Usually the patterns are cost prohibitive because they include templates and extremely detailed instructions. The Mrs. Billings coverlet is one example.

The "Burnt Quilt" is another example.
The original quilt was used to put out flames after it's owners daughter's clothing had caught fire.
It was never repaired, hence the nickname, The Burnt Quilt.

Another medallion example:
The Phebe Quilt

How about a sew along where the pattern for a beautiful historic Medallion quilt is completely FREE?
Esther Aliu is in the process of translating Love Entwined into a pattern:

Esther is still working on the design and fabric requirements for this free Block of the Month, but in the meanwhile, you can join the Yahoo Group so you don't miss the launch of the gorgeous pattern!
Just a warning: I would opt for the daily digest at the bottom of the sign-up page--it's a very vocal group!
