Celtic Sampler Quilt Blocks

This quilt was made using four Hearts, six Knots, two Candles and one Cross design. The background fabric is a rich yellow and all the machine embroidery was done with a combination of varigated and solid colors. The varigated was used in the center strip of all the designs, to give continuity. It is a red, white and blue varigated from Superior Threads, #823 - Patriotic. The solid colors used are Sulky thread in red, dark pink, white, gray, blue, light blue and black. The designs were done in three hoop sizes: 4x4, 5x7 and 6x10.
