|Nine Knots - 85 inches square|
At the end of September I finished this Celtic knot quilt top and was trying to decide what to do for the back. My original thought had been to make one large quilt block, but I didn't have enough fabric to make that happen.
Back at the drawing board, I considered what I could design with the fabric remaining and wasn't able to come up with anything that really worked for me. I briefly considered going with a wide back but figured if I was going to buy fabric, I should get the additional dark fabric to make the large block I had originally wanted.
So now, one and a half yards of dark fabric later, I have nine knots for the front and one for the back!
|Plus One - 90 inches square|
The blocks for the front are about 24 inches square (2 times the pattern size) and the block for the back is 70 inches square (worked up at 5 times the pattern size)! The borders are similar to the front, but there wasn't enough dark (again) so I improvised on the edges.
Now all I need is a quilt plan and I'll be in good shape to have it done before Christmas! I had been thinking that the front might look good with some stitching in the ditch around the knots and ghost patterns in the dark diamonds but, now that it's a reversible quilt, I'm having second thoughts. I'll have to think on it a bit and see if anything pops up!
