Cy - Celtic Knot Quilt update

Celtic Knot Quilt update.

Just a little bit of stitching done on this quilt this week.

Two of these corner Knots outlined and ready for filling.


Two more of these corner knots still to stitch, and then what? lol

Oh yeah! I did start on a knitted baby jumper, but (dare I admit it) I got fed up with it and chucked it. Oh well.....


Happy Stitching

Do you cut these bands on the bias?

Cyra said...

Yes. The appliqued knots need to bias cut to go around the bends easily.

Oooh, yummy. I love Celtic! Today at our lecture series, we had Angelica Ottewill, a harper, singer, and storyteller perform on her harp. There were some lovely Celtic songs. I added her CD to my Celtic and Harp Collection.........
Such perfect precision shaping those knots, Cy!

Looks to be a lot of fiddly work but oh so gorgeous.

Nice! I love the colors and your applique is great.

Your applique work looks very good. I'm sure you will come up with something else to do. =) It's a wise woman who knows when to chuck a project. LOL

Debra Spincic said...

That's what I thought. Then, do you hand quilt the background?

Barbara C said...

Very striking and dramatic! It's good to know when to give up on a project.

Cyra said...

At the moment I am not fully convinced that I want to invest all that time to hand quilt the background. I'll probably machine quilt it.

Cyra said...

That was a lovely lecture Suz. Always good to add more music to your collection.

Cyra said...

Thanks Angela. Fiddly, yes, sometimes.

Cyra said...

Thanks Judy. The recent stitching is ok but I really dont like the stitching I did all those years ago (rather rough and not very neat at all). I am wondering if I can live with it ! or will I have to re-do it.

Cyra said...

Yep. I thought I wanted a 'no-brainer' stitching project...but I was wrong lol.

Cyra said...

Is it too dramatic do you think? I will be adding some softer purple & yellow threads somewhere in the overall design which may calm it down a bit.
