Celtic Knot 2 and Celtic Knot 3 are stitched with Prism tie dye floss and pieced on point with a Hawaiian print fabric. Scarlett added a row of orange sashiko stitching 1/4" inside the edge of each block and a 1/2" frame strip of bright blue solid color fabric around the center panel before finishing off with a 2" border of the print. Another row of orange sashiko stitching runs down the center of the 1/2" frame strip. Scarlett machine quilted it in the ditch and bound it off with the print.
