In the center of the tattoo on John’s upper arm is a Celtic knot. One morning 9 years and a few months ago, I was studying the knot as John slept, thinking that Celtic knots would make such beautiful quilt patterns. And so an idea was born. I designed a quilt, intended to be my wedding gift to John, using the knot on his arm as the central design and a boarder of another knot design.

Perhaps tattoos are a bit unconventional for quilt designs, but in the end it all seems so perfectly fitting. Celtic knots with all of their ins and outs, ups and downs, twists and turns of infinite loops seem to me the perfect symbol for marriage. And like quilts, marriage too, grows softer, more comfortable, and lovelier with time.
Happy Anniversary My Love.
