Mary Hansen wanted to use a Celtic design in her Amish style quilt, so she chose one of Marsha Myrum-Thompson's big Celtic block designs for the center square.
Here's a closeup of the center square so you can see the hand quilting of Marsha Myrum-Thompson's big Celtic block design better.
Kaaren Biggs of Canada made this quilt with 18 of the block designs from Philomena Durcan's first book Celtic Quilt Designs.Karen lives in the small town of Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, which is on the north shore of Lake Erie about 2 hours west of Buffalo, New York. Karen says, "I have loved doing Celtic-style applique for several years, both by hand and by machine, and have been teaching the technique as well. I teach a Celtic class and many other classes through a quilt shop called Quilters' Haven in the village of Renton which is just five miles from Simcoe."
Here's Morning Glory, a Celtic design from Beth Ann Williams' book, Celtic Quilts: A New Look for Ancient Designs, made by Kaaren Biggs of Canada. Beth's book is now out of print, but some quilt shops may still have copies available. It's also possible to find it on Amazon through their used book dealers and on eBay.
Kaaren Biggs also made a variation of Celtic Block #260, a pattern design by Marsha Myrum-Thompson of the Celtic Cat. Kaaren changed the loops at the top and bottom of the design to give this Celtic design a different look.
The 4th prize winner in the Predominately Applique (Amateur) category for the 2007 Quilters' Guild of New South Wales, Australia, quilt show is Celtic Windows by Beverley Hunter. This picture was provided by, and used with permission from, the QGNSW. The Celtic border and lattice design is called Celtic Wedding Rings (Interlace in the Round). The layout diagram for Celtic Wedding Rings is available in Celtic Medallion III as printed pattern or as an e-pattern. The pattern contains the knotwork border and circular interlace templates, readily adaptable to make a 90" (2.3m) quilt, but does not have the applique baskets pictured here. Those were added by Beverley Hunter.
"Knot-n-Nines" by Louise A. McGrattan of St. George, Canada
