Overview

Piecework enthusiasts rejoice! Now great Celtic designs can be created with only two simple blocks. Quilters traditionally use applique to create Celtic designs. Instead, Karen has translated knot work into pieced patterns. She found she can create many Celtic designs with two, three, or more blocks, so the possibilities are unlimited. Famous for her use of color and color illusion, the author shows how to use color, texture, and value to add excitement to Celtic quilts. She shares her simple design concepts for those who want to design their own Celtic quilts, while providing piecing tips, pressing options, and quilting ideas. Even beginning quiltmakers can tackle these colorful quilt patterns. Teaching tips and lesson plans are included for quilt teachers and shop owners.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Karen Combs has a winner with Celtic Pieced Illusions. The designs are beautiful and it's very surprising to find you can make them with only two or three different blocks. It's all in the way they are arranged. Karen even has instructions in the back of the book for teaching one of the designs...a lesson plan for quilt teachers. Great idea that I wish would show up in more books. -Sandra Olson
