    My 15-y/o son Kevin's quilt...WIP

    I finally finished the piecing part of this quilt yesterday...mind you, he has a king-sized bed! I still need to add borders (thinking black, thin line of the green, black binding. Well, I decided to "man up" his quilt and added an applique medallion of a Celtic Cross I made with home made bias tape, and iron, and sheer determination! I also have some Celtic Knotwork I am working on for the border....maybe!

    I would like to thank those who posted in the thread where I was having trouble getting these squares done. Your ideas were so useful!
