These blocks were stenciled on fabric using the Full Line Stencil for the 1 3/4" Celtic Border Design.
A twelve inch block stenciled from the 1 3/4" Celtic Border Stencil. The 4 1/4" center knot is made from 4 of the border knot stenciled together. The 2 1/2" wide outer border is made from the corner knot and the side knot, turned out.
Stained glass style coloring with fabric markers. This smaller block shows how the side knot can be turned to face in (sides and bottom) or turned out (top) along the border lines.

October 2011 - Here's the center block of Celtic Circuits made in red, white & blue!
New Circuitry - 29 1/4" square
Here's the same 12" center block from the original quilt, but made with different insets and instead of having five narrow borders, it's been pieced together with right triangles twice before adding a straight border. The first set of triangles (in green print) have Celtic border corner #2 appliqued along the seam and the second set of triangles (a blue print) have Celtic border corner #4 appliqued in them. Where the two border designs intersect, the bias tape has been woven over and under, interlocking the two borders together. The 3" border of burgundy print was added to frame the whole quilt design. This is Scarlett's new class sample for the Celtic Circuits pattern. A bonus handout with yardages and instructions for this sample quilt is given only to students who take this class.
Here's a closeup of the Celtic border corner #4, showing the insets and the interweaving of the bias. The blue triangles were machine quilted in overlapping half circles.
Here's a closeup of the center block, showing the placement of the insets. The block was machine quilted in a loop the loop pattern and the green triangles were machine quilted with freemotion feathers.
Without the last plain border, the New Circuitry design could also be set together like big blocks. Here's a copy and pasted version to show how this design would look set 2 X 2.
Here's a closeup of the center block in the original Celtic Circuits.
Two colors of insets were used in this geometric block design. The quilting was done with metallic thread, to add a bit of sparkle to the quilt, especially in the borders.
