♫ The Music ♫
Celebrating the musical talent treasure trove of Canada’s East Coast. Cables and music always seemed to be the perfect pairing – the intricacies of the melodies so like the interwoven strands in the cables we knit. So explore while you knit these quilt blocks - from the Song for the Mira composer and lyricist Allister MacGillivray to the rich Gaelic voice of Mary Jane Lamond to Denny Doherty of The Mamas and Papas; Natalie MacMaster, fiddler extraordinaire; Sarah McLachlan, spirit and founder of Lilith Fair; dearly beloved Stan Rogers; Hank Snow, acclaimed country and western star; the iconic Men of the Deeps and two East Coast legends – Anne Murray and Rita MacNeil.

The pattern includes 10 quilt blocks but only 9 are required for the quilt. Once completed, the 9 individual blocks are joined using a 3-needle bind off and the outer edge is finished. The only sewing required is a few tiny stitches to join the I-Cord ends.

Two PDF files are included in this pattern: A Celtic Quilt 3 Full Pattern v1.0 (26 pages) contains all directions and charts for the quilt blocks and A Celtic Quilt 3 Written Directions Supplement Full Pattern v1.0 (28 pages) contains all of the written directions for each of the quilt blocks.
