Springtime Heirloom
84” x 84” 2006


Celtic knot designs made of shaped lace and bias linen strips stitched to cotton batiste form the blocks for this quilt. The batiste blocks were layered over a subtle yellow print, then joined with pieced sashing with octagon corners. A large-scale print makes up the wide outer border, and narrow borders of bright rose pick up that color from the print. The centers of the Celtic knot blocks contain a little machine embroidered rose, and after the quilting was finished, a machine embroidered, free-standing lace bow was tacked to the center of each octagon. Machine embroidery designs from Zundt embroidery. Machine stitched; longarm quilted by Lin Hayden.
