Piecework enthusiasts rejoice!
Now great Celtic designs can be created with only two simple blocks.
Quilters traditionally use appliqué to create Celtic designs. Instead,
Karen has translated knot work into pieced patterns. She found she can
create many Celtic designs with two, three, or more blocks, so the
possibilities are unlimited.
Famous for her use of color
and color illusion, the author shows how to use color, texture, and
value to add excitement to Celtic quilts. She shares her simple design
concepts for those who want to design their own Celtic quilts, while
providing piecing tips, pressing options, and quilting ideas. Even
beginning quilt makers can tackle these colorful quilt patterns.
Teaching tips and lesson plans are included for quilt teachers and shop
Let Karen show you some illusion tricks and piecing
tips from her new book, Celtic Pieced Illusions!

Through Your Scraps ebook
What do you do with all those
scraps? Karen continues her quilting magic and
offers an answer - fabulous scrap quilts. Focusing on color value rather
than color or texture, she offers practical magic
for using those leftover, and sometimes less lovely fabrics found in almost
everyone's stash. Using only light and dark basic Nine-Patch and Split
Nine-Patch blocks, you can create eye-catching designs to enhance any
setting. Included are dozens of design possibilities and 18 projects.
"Combing Through Your Scraps" has been a wonderful success.
It has been re-released as an ebook and is now available!
