Celtic Plaid is a very versatile Celtic block design for wallhangings and quilts. Make it with large prints, inkjet printed fabric, patchwork blocks, applique blocks and embroidery block designs (see previews). The center is an 8 1/2" square, with bias strips and patchwork forming a frame around it. Twist and turn the bias to interconnect the blocks and create an overall pattern! Use many different fabrics for the bias, to add more interest.
Instructions for a four block wallhanging are given, plus suggestions and pictures for more variations.
