Crystallized Celtic applique pattern Michiko's Memories

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Applique by hand or machine
  • Basic piecing skills

Pattern Description:

This innovative quilt features Scarlett's Celtic Crystals block as a center medallion and has a border design using Scarlett's new technique of Interlacing Lattices for the border. Choose to hand applique or machine applique this beautiful quilt. Directions for both methods are given, so you can follow the instructions for the method that you wish to use. Two techniques for making your own bias tape are also included, since Scarlett prefers to use different types of bias depending on whether she wants to hand applique or machine applique her Celtic knotwork.

The inset spaces in the center knot design are big enough to show off a large scale print, with fussy cutting of the print to fit each space as it is oriented in the design. Use that gorgeous fabric with your favorite design without cutting up the images! There are four 4 1/2" x 8" curved rectangles , four 5" rounded off squares and one 6" center in the large Celtic knot block, plus thirty-six 3" squares in the Interlacing Lattice border.

Extra templates are given for making rounded loops with the Crystallized Celtic knot. Mix and match the pointed loops with the rounded loops!
