My first go at Celtic Quilting

My Aunt made Aaron and I a wonderful Celtic wedding quilt when we got married. I always envied that technique and wanted to learn it. She gave me the book on how to do it! I decided the best practice would be a wall hanging and I was in the Irish swap so how perfect is that!
This knot is called the wheel around the sun. It is 21 inches square with hanging rings on the back. Sorry this pic makes it look so wrinkled! I had to pull it out of the box I had it rolled up in for sending to get some pictures! Once it is ironed it looks a lot nicer!
It was so much fun I bought fabric to make myself a table runner to match my kitchen colors!
