Pieced Celtic Knots Star in This Unusual Quilt

Simplified Construction Makes This Easier Than it Looks!
Blocks with the look of Celtic knots grace this unique quilt. The pieced border sets them off beautifully.
Give your version the look of a scrappy quilt, as designer Maria Umhey did here. Or, choose a selection of coordinating colors for a stunning version.
Play with color and value placement to determine what to emphasize within the blocks. Mix it up as the designer did or create a striking overall pattern by making each block the same.
While this quilt looks complicated, there’s nothing tricky about its construction. The blocks go together similar to Log Cabin blocks, then four are stitched together for each square. Sashing, cornerstones and the easy-to-piece border complete the design.
The finished quilt is 60″ x 76″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
