A Quilter's Gathering
Nashua, New Hampshire
There were several Celtic quilts entered in the quilt competition at this show for 2007. Scarlett took pictures of most of them, and here they are:
#70 - Life Cycles by Fran Kordek of Elkins, WV. The Celtic Tree of Life (copyright by Welsh artist Jen Delyth, used with permission) is surrounded by my Celtic design of a circle of seasons.
Closeup of #51 - Pearls of Fire by Pat Harrison of Exeter, RI. The design for this whole cloth was inspired by a trip through Southern Ireland in Sept. 2006, where I fell in love with all things Celtic. Trapunto, hot fix and string pearl embellishment, longarm machine quilted and piped binding.
#21 Aunt Mimi's Flower Garden by Elsie M. Campbell of Dodge City, KS. Over the course of 3 years, I developed the technique for the Celtic work and took classes from sue Nickels and Diane Gaudinski for the applique and machine quilting - then practiced, practiced & practiced until I got it!
Here's a closeup of the Celtic knotwork:
