What are you most proud of? This was my first Celtic design using biased binding and it turned out better than I expected.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch a tutorial on Foundation pieced blocks before making the pieced blocks. Use biased binding so the curved shapes of the Celtic design lay flat.

I updated the photos with the templates for the shamrock. I do not have a pattern for the bias tape design.

I made a line drawing of the Celtic Shamrock pattern the size I needed for the block. I placed the fabric block on top of the drawing to use as a guide for placing the bias tape. The bias tape had to eased into the curved shapes and pinned in place until I could fuse it.

You can click on the template photo. Then use a click, drag & drop into a word document so you can adjust the size of the template and print.

Love Celtic Knots. I've made 2 table runners & 8 placemats with Celtic Knots. They are so much fun to sew.

I like the way the flow and interwine. They keep your eyes moving around the design.
