blocks. Quilters traditionally use appliqué to create Celtic designs.
Instead, Karen has translated knot work into pieced patterns. She found
she can create many Celtic designs with two, three, or more blocks, so
the possibilities are unlimited.
Famous for her use of color
and color illusion, the author shows how to use color, texture, and
value to add excitement to Celtic quilts. She shares her simple design
concepts for those who want to design their own Celtic quilts, while
providing piecing tips, pressing options, and quilting ideas. Even
