We sewed the sqs into 'chunks' of 25 patches, it was kinda fun but time consuming. When I got the chance to pattern test using strips, I jumped at the chance. The pattern is great for scraps and/or eights or fats. My test top was sewn using 1 1/2" strips and I completed it in less then a week of evening sewing. (8-10 hours total)
|I hope to add applique borders. This is on my TO DO for 2012|
I plan to teach this pattern as a class several times this year.
You can order the pattern here: Trinity Celtic Knot
Starting in March, I will host a Sew-In with tutorials and hints/helps for completing this beautiful quilt. If you have a wedding quilt in mind for this coming year, this is the pattern you need.
I will do a give-a-way of 2 1/2" scrappy strips to get you started.
Be a follower (you probably are if you are reading this-lol)
Comment - Who would you gift this quilt too
Order the Pattern so you can play along in March.
Disclaimer: The tutorial will NOT give you fabric amounts or number of strips (you will need the pattern for that) The Tutorials will give you hints/helps that will speed you along and encouragement to finish. The pattern is very doable for confident beginner and/or advanced sewers. If you like to hand piece you can skip the strip steps and sew sqs.
Add Trinity Celtic Knot to your list of TO DO's in 2012!
