Celtic Dreams

Celtic Dreams

100″ x 100″

Completed 2005

When my husband and I first started planning to get married in, I said that I would make him a quilt for our bed (a California King, what was I thinking?).  He wanted a Celtic design, so I planned this quilt using EQ5 software.  We got some of the knots from a “Celtic Quilt Designs” by Philomena Durcan and my husband found the rest in design books or came up with his own knots. I designed the layout and the corner blocks.   Since this is a hand appliqué quilt, it wasn’t done in time for the wedding and I missed the 2nd anniversary (the “cotton” anniversary) too.  However, shortly after our third anniversary in 2006, the top was finally done!  Since it’s so big, I had it professionally quilted. The finished top fits our bed just perfectly.
