St. Patrick’s Day – Go Green!

One of the happiest days of the year is March 17, the day the Irish celebrate their heritage and culture around the world. Everyone can be Irish for a day!   Enjoy a parade, sing along with folk music of Ireland, eat special food, or wear a little green. It’s a fun day to spend with family and friends – or with your green fabrics!

Inspired to use green? If you can set aside a few hours this weekend, here are our picks:  an Irish Chain quilt, a raggy wreath, a lucky table runner, and an embellished baby tee shirt. From no-sew to quick sew, these look like fun projects. Take a look!

A classic green and white Irish Chain quilt is something every quilter needs to make!  Here Aby Quilts shows you how to make this little table topper in a photo tutorial:

We are showing our green here.  The fresh color of Springtime.  You’ll find our pre-cuts everywhere fat quarters are sold. We do contemporary chevrons and quatrefoils, tone on tones and batiks, small prints, dots and solids, too.  In every shade of green – emerald, lime, pine, mint – we do it all!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
