Celtic Quilting Patterns

“Intricate Knots”

Ever wanted to make a quilt using Celtic quilting patterns?

Thought it was too intimidating?

We’ll show you how to make these beautiful designs in the easiest manner possible. 

We’ll even go over how you can create these patterns yourself!

Infinity Knot

The design we are going over today is the Infinity Knot pictured here.

This pattern is very simple.  If you follow the line, you will notice that it is all one line.  That is why we are only going to use one color for the knot and one color for the background.

Save and print this image to follow the steps of our Celtic pattern to complete your quilt.

Steps

  •  After you have printed this image, trace it onto some Heat n Bond interfacing. 

Remember to use ultra-hold iron-on adhesive if not going to wash the final piece. It is perfect for wall-hangings that won’t be touched by kids.

Use lite heat n’ bond for when you are going to stitch it down and make it machine washable.

  • Press your traced image onto the back of your desired fabric.  Remember to have the iron on medium heat and to only have contact with the fusible for 2 seconds. (Example: Count 1001 and 1002.)
  • Cut out your design.
  • Once all the pieces are cut out, arrange them onto the front of the background fabric.
  • When desired placement is met, peel off the paper, and press the pieces into place.  Hold the medium hot iron down for the count of 5.  (Example:  Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005.)
  • If you used the lite heat n bond, stitch the pieces into place at this point.

All of the pieces are ironed into place?

Perfect, this top is done!   

I told you it would be easy. ;)

Now you are free to assemble your quilting cookie (think Oreo).  If you decide to quilt over the top, rather than just the edges, be sure to avoid stitching on the appliqued pieces.  They won’t like it and we don’t want to gum up your needle.

How to Make Your Own Pattern

First and foremost we need an image to go off of.  You can find several Celtic pictures just by doing an image search on any major search engine.  Another way of doing it, is to draw out your own.

Find the design you want and save.  Edit the image if necessary.  Then print it out. 

Be sure to follow the design to see how many colors of fabric you will need.  Some designs have only one line, while others can have over 5.  Make sure it’s the design you want before you move on.

Next trace the image onto some Heat n Bond interfacing.

Now follow the steps that we used for our pattern.

It’s that simple.

Wrap Up

Celtic quilting patterns can be a cinch.  Don’t make them more difficult than they need to be.  We know after you try one, you’ll be hooked.  We take no responsibility for how addictive they can be.  Enjoy!

Until next time.

Happy quilting,
