Celtic Dreams

Earlier this year, I bought this Fat Quarter pack


With the colours and prints, I just new it had to be a quilt for Dave. I was hoping to make it for his birthday, but with everything else I had going on (mostly deadline quilts for Sam), I knew it was foolish to add in another deadline quilt.

But now with Time to Sew out of the way, I figured if I started now, I might be able to get it done for him for Christmas.

I wanted the pattern to echo the Celtic theme of the fabric, and I think I found the perfect one in this pattern.


There were no instructions, just a picture on Pinterest. But  it didn’t take me long to figure it out.


Using 3.5″ squares, it makes quite a large block – too big to work from my little ironing board. But like the Moda Love quilt, this one is easy to break down into quadrants.


Then it’s just a matter of putting the four quadrants together…


… to create one stunner of a block!  And it’s a biggie too  – 24.5″ square.

I have enough fabric to do four blocks, though I’d like this to be a a really big quilt, so I may grab a few more pieces for a couple more.

    “Stunner of a block” is right! And it’s going to be a stunner of a quilt!
    I saw some of that fabric in a quilt shop the other day and drooled but didn’t buy. Might have to reconsider that…

    That is beautiful fabric and your blocks are awesome. Yah for you figuring out the pattern from a photo. That will be the perfect quilt for a guy.

    Stunning! Man, that is really right up my alley. I can’t wait to see it finished (she says, in a totally non-pressureful way)!
