Inspired by the same beautiful celtic knot motif on which my Crown of Venice paper piecing quilt block is based, this applique version is suitable for either machine or hand applique. The applique pattern includes templates, placement guides, yardage requirements and directions for creating finished motifs in sizes from 7-1/2 inch (19cm) to 36 inch (91cm).
There's also basic how-tos for machine and hand applique, plus a coloring page for experimenting with color possibilities before selecting fabrics.
The celtic knot crown or wreath is fabulous for many projects, from T-shirts, denim jackets and tote bags to wedding quilts, wall hangings, and holiday decor. Try the trapunto technique of lightly stuffing behind each applique shape for an amazing 3-D effect. The design could also be used for other crafts projects, including shadow applique, paper crafts and stenciling.
You may sew items using this pattern for personal or small-scale commercial use, provided you personally sew them (mass production not permitted). Credit to Piece By Number for the design will be appreciated.
