Welcome to Celtic Design!
You are invited to explore an extraordinary collection of elegant quilt designs drawn from ancient Celtic Art forms by renown author and quilt designer Philomena Durcan.
Philomena introduced Celtic design to the quilt world in 1980 with the publication of her first book, Celtic Quilt Designs. Since then she has lectured and given workshops throughout the world on her Interlace, Spiral, and Floral designs. Her work has been exhibited internationally in numerous museums and shows, and she has been featured in quilting magazines such as Traditional Quilter (Featured Teacher), Patchwork Quilt Tsushin (Japan), as well as on Kaye Wood's television show Quilting for the 90's, and on Alex Anderson's show Simply Quilts.
Celtic Design Books & Bias Bar Tools
Philomena has authored books demonstrating how three ancient Celtic art forms (Interlace, Spiral, and Floral motifs) have been adapted for quilting. In addition, she has developed the Bias Bar tools necessary for constructing the Bias patterns.
