This unique quilted holiday wall hanging will wow your family. Dating back to the Book of Kells in 806 AD these Celtic designs were used to decorate the Gospels.  Please add your borders and pop of color micro border to your background before class.

You will start the quilting class by tracing a template that we provide onto your background material.  Then move on to making the bias tapes and arranging the Celtic ribbon pattern using your tracing and a our store sample .  You will glue the ribbons down with Roxanne's Glue Baste It and then stitch it down.

We will make the "sandwich" (top, batting & backing) and stitch down the bias strips.  This provides some of the quilting, then you square up and bind your quilted wall hanging.
