Irish Stuff

Old Irish Blessing: "May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go."



"May your troubles be less and your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness come through your door."





Irish Counted Cross Stitch Sampler-Made this in 2008 and had it custom framed at the "Frame A Lot" Yes that is the real name of the place :) Pattern is by "Blue Ribbon Designs"







Churn Dash table runner-The dark green fabric has shamrocks on it. This goes on the dining room table for St. Patty's Day.















Irish Sampler-Made this one in the late 80s/early 90s. Some of the fabrics have small shamrocks on it. Hand quilted with shamrocks in the borders, machine pieced and hand appliqued.








Claddagh Wholecloth wall hanging-I was so sick of cheese-y St. Patrick's Day decorations. Enough with the beer already. :) So I made this one in 2008. The cross hatching is 1/2" apart :) Enlarged a claddagh stencil to get the center design.



Took a class in the mid 90s at a Southern California quilt shop for this one. Great travel project. I have two other celtic applique quilts in the works.

"Bless your little Irish heart and every other Irish part."
