FMCKQ, part four . . .

After days of writing and drawing Celtic knot paths, I could wait no longer to get to the sewing machine!!

I made a quick quilt sandwich, pinned it, and stitched it.

I started with the border, then I stitched the double-headed knot on the diagonal, and finally stitched a smaller knot in the lower corner.

The method works!!

Someone suggested I try it with a twin needle . . . I like the sound of that. I also wanted to try pinning with smaller safety pins, and position them differently.
