Cheryl Willis is doing a quilt-a-long on the Trinity Celtic Knot! It seems Deborah Cohen has redone the pattern to where it can be strip pieced now and that pattern is now out. Please check out Cheryl's blog here:

There is ordering information there on Cheryl's blog. I also linked to Deborah's blog on my last post here on my blog.

Will you be doing the Knot a long with Cheryl?

Koa's quilt

This is the quilt I made for my niece Koa.

It is a Trinity Celtic Knot. Lynne C. did a mystery quilt-a-long and gave us steps every week or so until we finished it. I was one of Lynne's testers to make sure she was giving out the pieces correctly. This was so fun to do. Thank you Lynne for doing this for us. Another lady in Australia came up with the pattern and published it months later in the Autralian Quilt magazine. Can't remember what issue or what that ladies name is. It will turn up somewhere on the net and when it does, I will give that credit that is do.

This was a scrappy quilt. We were to use all our scraps in certain colorways. I used all my whites for the white, all my blacks for the black, all my green's for the green's and all my purples for the purples. Also kept buying remnants from the local quilt shop to give me more variety of the purple's and green's and then along came Lynne's quilt-a-long that worked perfect for my pieces.

I finished the quilt top back in the summer of 2010 and finally got it quilted in 2011 and delivered to Hawaii where Koa my niece lives.

Zach's quilt

This is a quilt I made for my son. I finished it on Thanksgiving day 2011. It was a block of the month from the local quilt shop. I added the red myself. It was supposed to be just black and white. I added the red to give it some pop. The red has Japanese lettering on it which Zach loves all things Japanese. I also added some Japanese fabrics to the black and white connecting blocks.
