Celtic Knot

Here is my completed Celtic Knots. There are 3 of them on this piece. It was made with 1/4 in bias tape which I cut and pressed. It was very fun to sew. I learned many things doing this piece. For example it really makes a difference what size needle you use when doing hand work. I had no idea that such a simple thing could make things so much more enjoyable. I had a great time doing this now I need to decide what to do with it. The original intent of the class was to make it into a table runner and as I worked on it I decided I really did not want anyone spilling coffee or wine on this so what should I make it into? I have thought of a long narrow pillow but I am still unsure. Please let me know what you think.

I am also planning on hand quilting in a grid pattern. In working on this piece I found out I really enjoyed the preciseness of this kind of work. I have been thinking about how to incorporate this into something a bit less traditional.

We are having a beautiful weekend. I am planning on going to Ashland for a few days and visit my Son so I will not be online but will return later in the week. Have a great week.
