Happy St Patty’s Day! I figure today is a good day to look at one of my favorite quilt patterns, the Celtic Knot.
Ancient-Symbols.com explains the significance behind the Celtic Knot.
Interwoven patterns first made an appearance in the handicrafts of the Roman Empire. In the third and fourth centuries AD, knot patterns were first seen—an art form that was soon adapted to mosaic floor patterns too. In or around 450 AD, before the Celts could be influenced by Christianity, Celtic culture took the form of knots, spirals, plait, braid, step and key patterns to depict richly symbolic seven creations.
Celtic Knots are complete loops with no beginning and no end. So of course it was natural to make them into quilts! Here are a few patterns I found so you can make a Celtic Knot of your own.
