♫ 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. (The original mystery KAL clues contain links to celebrate the musical talents of these Maritime treasures.)

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.

Both charts and written directions for each chart are included.

June 2020 Update: Two comprehensive pattern files were uploaded today: 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).

The Mystery KAL files will remain so that anyone working from them can still carry on.
