New Celtic Knot Machine Quilting Templates October 07 2015, 0 Comments
We can’t begin to tell you how excited we are about our new Celtic Knot machine quilting templates!
Why call them ‘Celtic Knot’ templates? It’s because the first basic design created by these templates is a three-pointed petal shape that is common in Celtic designs, also called a ‘triquetra’ (tri kwe’ tra). From this basic shape, many more can be formed.
By the way, ‘Celtic’ is pronounced Kel’tic. (It's only pronounced Seltic when referring to the Boston basketball team.)
The prototypes for all four sizes arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to start working on samples. We have a lot of ideas for new designs to stitch with them, many of which are stunning border designs.
Here are a couple photos of designs made with the new Celtic Knot templates with better ones to come. We’ll be quilting samples up a storm and publishing a video in a few weeks.
Until then, I used a dry erase board (very well-used as you can see) to test the templates out. They work great! I don’t want to flood you with pictures, but it’s hard to quit when there are so many ways to use these amazing new templates!
As promised, the prices for these new templates are now posted on the website at http://topanchorquilting.com/products/celtic-knot-template . Check out our fantastic presale offer! This Presale will last until we will start shipping them, around Nov. 1, 2015 depending on the manufacturer’s production schedule. We will announce a definite date as soon as we know it.
We will soon publish both photos and graphics of many wonderful border designs that can be quilted using our new Celtic Knot templates. Mixing two or more sizes together gives so many new designs you’ll have a hard time deciding which pattern to choose!
