Fun quilty weekend

Well, my laundry didn't get folded, my carpet is fuzzy from dog hair,
and we had leftovers for dinner on Sunday but I finished my celtic
quilt top!!! I actually finished the center knot in class and the rest
during the weekend at home.

On Saturday I attended this class sponsored by my guild, Southern
Comforters of Bowie, Maryland and taught by Peg Bingham.
She has published many books on Celtic knots and lives in Ohio.
Take it from me, if you ever get a chance to take one of her classes,
go for it. She is a great teacher and her patterns are amazing.
This looks complicated doesn't it? Peg's books are so organized
that all you have to do is follow step by step. In each of her books
you can choose from many different sizes and shapes too.
This quilt is called Overhand Knot. I actually changed it a little
and Peg was gracious enough to help me figure it out. She liked
my change so much she is going to put it in the next printing of
this book.

Here is Peg (on the left) holding up some of the samples she brought.
She talked about color and fabric selection too.

I took a class from Peg a few years ago and made this table topper/wallhanging.
This pattern is called Square Knot.

What a pieceful weekend I had.

Until next time...
