Celtic Applique



In April I will be going to Missouri to teach a class on Celtic Applique to my mother's quilt guild. These are the patterns I think might be the easiest and work the best.

Now I need to make each of these quilt blocks to show the quild.
To make the bias tape a "QUILTER'S PRESS BAR" is needed.

PAINTED PILLOW
requirements:
1 fat quarter light fabric for background
6" x 6" square contrasting fabric for applique insets
14" x 14" sheet of tracing paper
1 fat quarter each of 2 subtle print fabric for applique
Fusible product





KELLS KNOT PILLOW
requirements:
1 fat quarter light fabric for background
14" x 14" sheet of tracing paper
1 fat quarter contrasting fabric for applique





TRACE LOVER'S KNOT
requirements:
1 fat quarter light fabric for background
14" x 14" sheet of tracing paper
1 fat quarter medium or dark print fabric for applique

Hello! Do you sell the patterns for your lover's knot block? I am making my husband an irish chain quilt and he wants a large celtic knot in the center. I'd love to use your knot if you sell the pattern. Thanks! cadelethompson(at)gmail(dot)com

These are not patterns I created. Here are some links to books that I use when I create a Celtic Applique.
