Whew!

 I just spent a good part of the day making the bias strips and pinning them to the design. It took a loooong time.

I bought some applique pins this morning, and used about 2/3 of the 350 I bought.

I wonder how hard it is going to be to sew all this down. I am going to use the machine. I'm a skilled top-stitcher, but there is an awful lot of bias tape to sew down. I like the way it looks.

The bottom edge isn't reddish, that's just the indoor lighting.

When I've sewed it all down I still need to add the leaves.

I love the pattern! Is there one (pattern name) or is this your design?
How will you top-stitch? Double needle, zig-zag, straight or decorative stitch? Just wondering...
It will be beautiful, I'm sure!

I love it. I am planning on making a quilt sometime soon with a bunch of celtic knots in it. Can't wait to see this one finished.

Oh Mary that is absolutely stunning - good for you on doing it by machine, I think it would take forever to do by hand! I can't wait to see this one done. It's breathtaking already!
