Celtic Knot pieced

The top of the Celtic Knot is pieced.  There are 2,025 two inch squares in this quilt.  I was able to do quite a bit of it by strip piecing, and that made things much easier.  I had a few mis-sews, but all in all it went smoothly, and my seams (there were thousands of them) matched up well.  And, I did about half of the piecing on my treadle machine.  I am finally getting the feel of that one, and enjoying sewing on it.   Here are some more pictures of the quilt.

I am looking forward to quilting this one.  It is for my son and daughter in law, maybe I will get it finished for Christmas.  My son picked the fabrics out a year, maybe two years ago.  I have totally enjoyed piecing this quilt, and I am glad I am working through my UFO bins.  

Thanks for looking, I appreciate it,
