I made the Celtic Tricks block in prints from Desert Bloom by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda. It is such a fun block to put together!!! And how cool does it look in a full quilt layout with half of the block rotated!!!! It has so much amazing movement and I just love the way the way the pieces intersect with each other to create some awesome secondary designs.
And Celtic Tricks makes for a fantastic scrap buster for all your leftover strings!!! Just keep it random as you make up each of your blocks. And it comes together in some super scrappy goodness!!! This gives you the idea of a rainbow layout, but you could easily use reds and greens for a Christmas theme, or red, white, and blue for a patriotic quilt . . . the possibilities are endless when it comes to scrap happy designs :)
And you can always change it up by just using two colors. I love the fun optical illusion it creates in the black and grey, and hey, you could easily name this quilt design after the theme of the hop, Road Rally!!! Now this image is making me look forward to our next family road trip :) My family loves spending time together as we travel to new places and see new things. And we always look for a good DINER to stop at for dinner. I just love a good down home burger, and my husband and kids love the super yummy shakes ;)
And here's a little sneak peak of another version of Celtic Tricks!!! Isn't it so pretty in pink ;) I'm so looking forward to when I can share more of this quilt. And I will give you a hint . . . think Quilts from 100 Blocks :)
And now, I It really is just a super fun block to put together and whips up pretty fast. I hope you want to make up your own version as well, and if you do, be sure and share it with me. Maybe it will help me decide which version to make ;)
