Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to sew and piece quilt blocks.

Pattern Description:

In 1993, Mary Whitehead, self-published a simple knot pattern booklet that changed my life! My favorite design to create and to teach was her Gordian Knot. It has two colors and was pieced on point.

This Celtic Knot pattern was inspired by Mary's Gordian Knot.

This pattern has 3 colors in the ribbon design and is set straight instead of on point. The pattern has NO bias edges and no triangle pieces.

The header on the quilt allows it to be long enough to tuck under the pillows without loosing sight of the beautiful knot design.

The pattern has complete color layout, color cutting charts, and dozens of pages of detailed cutting instructions. This is NOT a hard pattern to sew, but does take some time to cut out. The pattern is 34 pages because there are photos of EVERY single piece that is being sewn in the design. You are guaranteed not to mess up this quilt if you go slow and read each page.

The pattern was tested by five quilters ranging in skill level. And ALL six finished and love their quilt! You will be amazed at the ease of construction...and the surprise result!

I have taught this pattern for about 15 years in Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, and Mississippi and all of my students love the piecing process and the gorgeous quilt they can create!

It takes about a day to cut out all the pieces and another day to sew up the center medallion. So, in total, allow at least a week for washing/drying fabric, cutting fabric, piecing, and assembling the quilt before quilting.

I hope you enjoy the pattern...it is a work of love!
