An Irish Welcome

I've been busy for the past few days on lots of new designs and I already have one of them quilted. Luck o' the Irish is a 15 x 30" applique door banner or wall hanging that's perfect for St. Patrick's Day but fun, anytime, for those of us that are Irish every day of the year ;-)

The one I made uses fabrics from my own collections but you can use a wide variety of festive greens from your stash on this one. I love how the Lime from my new Fizz collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics works for the background - it reminds me of green beer! Satinesque Stripe, also for RKF, is perfect for the binding.

I hope you like this new pattern which will be ready to ship the first week in February. Be sure to tell your local quilt shop owner that you saw it here and that you'd like them to carry it and all of the patterns from my line.

This is my offering of a "wee little bit o' springtime" to those of you that are still dealing with ice, snow, and cold. I hope it lifts your spirits! :-)


  1. I like the look of the Satinesuqe stripe used on the binding!

  2. It looks great with your new fabrics. I still need to decide what I am going to make with mine.


  3. Love, Love, Love mini blocks that fit the table stand. Keep them coming! ! !

    Looking forward to the Next one.

  4. I'm glad you like the the 12" mini quilts :) This 15 x 30" banner works well with one of the other hangers from the Party with Patrick club. The Luck o' the Irish pattern is for my pattern line and available to all (not exclusive to the club). Hope you like it as well.
