Free Pattern Friday ~ Celtic Knots from Life in the Scrapatch


Top of the Morning to you!

This quilt appeared in my 

which I made for my daughter in her wedding colors.
My Girl has always been a lover of Celtic Knots,
so I chose this lover's knot pattern for her table. 

I went looking for the pattern for this block.
 Apparently I designed it myself and never 
posted the cutting and sewing directions. 
There are similar blocks out there in block land,
but none of them are free.

Hmm ... what to do?


I found a new-to-me free Celtic Knot Block Design:

2022 Quiltmas Spectacular Roundup from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

To borrow a phrase from Miracle on 34th Street, “Quiltmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.” Even though we’ve already shared all the blocks from the 2022 Quiltmas Spectacular, we’re celebrating Quiltmas all month long.

Haven’t heard of Quiltmas? Twelve pattern designers come together to create 12 free quilt blocks celebrating the holiday season! Every day between December 1st and 12th, the Quiltmas elves delivered a new, free block pattern. Stitch up every block for a holiday celebration quilt or choose your favorite to turn into pillows or wall ...

A look at the Mountain Breeze Quilt in Solids from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

A close up of the Mountain Breeze Quilt in solids. You see the quilting on the quilt and a little piece of the back of the quilt.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!! I know it is a busy time of year, but I hope you got to spend a few moments at peace… possibly sewing. Last week I picked out some fabric to make another quilt for a class I will be teaching next quarter at the Quilt Basket. You guessed it! It will be using the Mountain Breeze pattern. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I always like to try to change the colors dramatically so it looks like something different. Speaking of different, here is the Mountain Breeze ...

Autumn Elegance Publishes! from From My Carolina Home

I’m a cover girl!! Last fall, my pattern design was accepted by Quilts and More magazine for this year. The magazine officially publishes tomorrow, August 5th, and you can find it in grocery stores, bookstores with magazine racks, and some quilt shops. Beginnings Quilt Shop will have it locally as well.

Art Gallery Fabrics generously gave me the fabrics to make the quilt, and the colors I chose put the feel firmly in the Autumn season. The fabric is a polished cotton in their Decostitch Elements line. You all know I just love those colors. I had about 12 ...

Escape to a Sightseeing Venture With Capri Fabrics by Katarina Roccella! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


One of my favorite things about sewing is getting lost at the sound of my sewing machine! Sewing away, chain piecing, cutting fabric, and next thing you know many hours have passed, and I was able to escape to my happy place. That is the greatest part about this community, that we can all share this passion, and how we can relate to how happy it makes us! A lot of this joy starts with just choosing what fabrics speak to me, and as of recently, all I’ve been daydreaming about is going on a sunny vacation to the ...

Bollywood from Wendy's Quilts and More

I'm pleased to present "Bollywood" - another finished quilt from Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein. 

I love the vibrant colours in this quilt.  I started with a piece of the Legendary fabric by Pat Bravo as my inspiration fabric, and chose the other fabrics from that.  The hot pinks, the rich golds, and the sparkling teals.  I love them all together in this fabric.  

Bollywood is made from the Raindrops Are Falling on my Head pattern that is in Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein.  I chose to hand piece my quilt, but it can also be paper pieced ...

As makers, we are always trying to evolve our craft, it’s what makes being a creator so great! As the years go by, I’ve considered myself quite lucky to be part of this evolution, in the way that my personal taste has changed and witnessing those around me also switch up their styles. The first person that comes to mind with great change is our dear designer, Sharon Holland! Ever since I joined the AGF family, collection after collection release I would always be amazed at what she brought to the table when it came to designs.

Life Is Just Peachy With Nectarine Fusion Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


We’ve been longing for low-volume! If you’ve been following AGF for a long time, you may have seen a couple of collection releases of low-volume fabrics but revolutionized. Before I get into the evolution of these fabrics, let me just dabble into what “low-volume” fabrics are, which may be a term you haven’t heard if you are new to the quilting world. These fabrics are subtle prints that read like one from afar, they are usually white, cream, or neutral color palette, but of course, here at AGF we like to push the limits!

Taking Black and White Prints to a New Level: Duality Fusion by AGF from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


The comfort of basic black and white fabrics will never disappoint! Two colors on the opposite side of the spectrum, working together to create something universal and modern. I believe this is the way we feel about these colors because fashion always portrays this combination as high contrast, bold yet classic, and ideal to wear no matter what season it is. But as the quilting world continues to evolve, black and white prints are coming to all patchwork projects alike. This brings to one of my favorite collection releases today, Duality Fusion

Get ready to sew with more than just ...

Enjoy the Comfort of Fall With Season & Spice Fabrics! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


Here’s a fun little fact for you, I write all the collection descriptions from AGF Studio collections! When I first joined the AGF family, I was so excited to start on all the ideas I had for social media, but little did I know that I would also have the responsibility to do so much writing. I was always intimidated at first by writing as I never thought I had it in me to express how I felt, but as these collections were released, I did feel something! Flipping through every print,  I always found myself in another world ...

Quiltmas 2021_ Blog Header

Not familiar with Quiltmas? It’s a fun kickoff to the holiday season, like a shortened advent calendar, where every day from December 1st through the 12th a new festive quilt block is delivered to your inbox. And the best part is that each block is designed by a different ...

Cutting Pieces – Terracotta Fiori Quilt Along from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Last week we decided on the layout we’re going to make and picked out our fabrics. This week, we’re cutting them up so that we can sew them back together. This is my favorite part of quilting. Well — if my favorite rotary cutter is working and has a fresh, new blade.

The prize this as we are week is a rotating cutting mat, ruler, and rotary cutter. 

Cutting Pieces for the Terracotta Fiori Quilt Along

Pre-Iron Your Fabrics

First, you need to iron your fabrics to get all the folds and krinkles out. For this quilt I only used a spray bottle of water. 

This is ...
