FMCKQ, part three . . .

So far, I’ve turned a figure eight chain into a Celtic knot, and I’ve enlarged the knot so the figure eight chain becomes a twisted Celtic knot border.

I’ve concentrated on the outside, the perimeter, of the knot.

Today, I’ll focus on the interior of the knot.

So far, all the knots have obstacles around the perimeter of the knot. Since there are no obstacles within the knot, there’s no reason the lines can’t go through the center of the knot.

Let’s throw in some obstacles.  Here’s an angled obstacle:

Here are some horizontal obstacles:

Since I want to use the knots as quilting designs, I can either use them as individual, standalone Celtic knots, or I can connect them.
