The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface - So it is that we develop - But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece.

Celtic Quilts - What Fun

I have been asked about posting some of my quilts and I came across this group while looking for my Christmas quilts and runners. 

Hope you enjoy my Celtic offerings.  They were a lot of fun to make and the first one is my favorite...  I have this hanging in our foyer hallway.





This one is very intricate and took a lot of concentration to make sure the bias was woven correctly.  Had a couple of "start overs" but finished in grand style .

This is a true Lover's Knot Celtic design and is my DWH's favorite.  Guess because I made it for him.
Celtic Crosses - one with Folk Art fabrics and one with Batiks.  I have not learned how to crop pictures yet, but will work on that after the first of year.  In fact, there are a lot of things I will be working on "after the first."  Wishing you happiness and contentment in your journey from Judy C

Have really gotten behind on what you are up to - the Celtic quilts are so dreamy - love your attention to detail. I caught the PBS showing of Riverdance last night (in Beijing) and my feet are still tapping - when I look at your quilts, I can hear all the beautiful music.
Your suggestion about mailing Christmas cards between holidays is excellent and relieves so much pressure! Thanks! A new tradition is started this year!!

Thank you for sharing. I was looking for inspiration to do a quilt for my best friends wedding and I think something like your "Lover's Knot" would be just perfect.
