Taking shape

In my last post, I told you that I had a plan to use the Celtic knot that I had drawn as part of the Creative Prompt Project..............but I did not say exactly what I planned. I have mentioned that I am intrigued with whole cloth quilting and want to try my hand at designing one. While I know that there are lots of beautiful designs available out there, I prefer to keep my work as original as possible.
Since I have never done this sort of thing before, I thought perhaps I should start small. So here is my knot, now surrounded by the designs I came up with. This will be a miniature, as the piece you see here is a mere 18" from edge to edge. You'll also notice that those lines are fairly dark,...........well, that is because I have no intention of removing them......... it's just something else I want to try and to find out what that might, be you'll need to check back later.

and here is my most recent doodle for the CPP. #43, which is Gratitude.

I couldn't see the photo of your whole cloth design in the post very well, but was able to see it perfectly once I clicked on the photo to make it bigger. The design is gorgeous and I am so glad that the CPP has led you to this point! It really makes me feel good.

Love your newest drawing as well.

I try to visit more often, but never seem to take the time too. I don't know why I don't??? Every time I do, I am in awe or inspired or just plain blown away by your intricate designs. Ok, maybe a little envious too, that you have more patience with your CPP's than I do. lol

Your knotwork is excellent! The Celtic knotwork is one of my favorite forms of design, and yours is impressive, especially since it's an original. I can't wait to see what you do with's very intriguing.
