Pacific International Quilt Festival 2002
The 2002 PIQF show was spectacular! Here's some pictures that Scarlett took of Celtic quilts or quilts that had bias strips used in part of their design. Please be patient as they load - they are large files so the detail can be seen.
Dragon's Walk by DJ Berger of Santa Rosa, California
No size given, but appeared to be queen/king size.
This quilt was made for DJ's son Marc, on his graduation from UC Santa Cruz. His friend John Erskine drew the Celtic dragon, which DJ adapted for this quilt. Most of the Celtic border is adapted from the border design in Celtic Medallion IV, which available as a pattern and e-pattern, and with the corner of the border from Celtic Medallion II, which is available as a printed pattern or as an e-pattern.
Here's a closeup of the border and part of the dragon design.
Here's a closeup of the dragon, with its own celtic design.
