My Celtic knot applique took a decidedly different turn Friday afternoon. In order to increase my productivity, I began using pre-quilted fabric for my fused-then-stitched Celtic knots.
This was my first foray using colors other than yellow, red, and blue on a black background; I also made smaller pieces than before.
First was a yellow and purple knot, followed by a green Celtic cross:
As I was stitching down the green shapes, I realized the Celtic cross was not one knot, but two. So I made another Celtic cross in red and black:
Remember the “knot gone wrong” from last week?? I set it aside and created a new one that I like much better. I still need to stitch the shapes down, add a hanging sleeve, then bind it:
This morning, I fused a three-color Celtic cross with shapes I traced and cut out yesterday. Again, I still need to stitch the shapes down, add a hanging sleeve, and bind it:
If I can create five quilts over three days, I’ll be interested to see how much I get accomplished between now and Saturday.
