Celtic Shamrocks

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • 100% Cotton Fabric & thread
  • polyester batting
  • fusible webbing

Celtic Shamrock pattern
sew.goodwitch answered:
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.
Ken Griffith asked:
can these patterns be downloaded or printed ? EG
sew.goodwitch answered:
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.
sew.goodwitch answered:
I like the way the flow and interwine. They keep your eyes moving around the design.
