About This Item
Description of Item

This panel is a remake of Celtic Knot since I always felt guilty at the sweeping colour changes that I made to the original by stunt quilter, Sharon Spingler. I realized that there is actually a lot of bright yellow gorse and broom blossom that grows amongst the “brucklebog” area near my house. I traced the design straight off the original quilted panel and attempted Celtic style appliqué for the first time The raw edged pieces of fabric were bonded onto a dyed yellow background and then fine, adhesive ribbon was attached. It was not as sticky as it should have been and there are rather a lot of places where the ribbon had to be tucked under or over the bonded pieces. It was a fiddly task using invisible monofilament thread to attach everything down securely. I used trapunto designs from a silver brooch to frame the celtic knot then quilted random swirling feathery designs in the background to make the piece one of the most complex pieces of the whole Yurt. The title comes from an old Scots folk song.
