In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I am reposting my Irish Flags quilt. This is probably one of my all-time favorite quilts I’ve ever created. I made it last year for the baby of my sweet Irish friend who passed away. You can read more about that story here. Hooray for Ireland.
A little story about this cute little pile of fabric: After seeing this St Patrick’s Day table runner made by Tricia I thought, I’m a March birthday girl, I really should make a St. Patrick’s Day table runner. Well it never happened, mainly because I just didn’t have the right green in my stash to pull it off.
So yesterday I had a big run to make to the Post Office. In order to bribe my 4-yr-old to cooperate with that plan, I promised him a stop at the Library afterward. It was such a great March-ish day outside: sunny with a breeze, felt like real spring. And there just happened to be a cute little quilt shop across the street. It was so nice outside that I nonchalantly proposed a little jaunt across the street to look at the fabric. He was in an especially good mood (and distracted) because we found a Star Wars picture book at the library, so he agreed. We had a lovely time strolling through the sunny shop, looking at fabric, discussing the genealogy of Bobba Fett, and there was the perfect green! So now I am armed for next year.
And briefly, while we’re on the topic of March, I have to share what my mother-in-law sent me for my birthday. Pyrex!! I’ve been itching to find some pyrex with turquoise. It’s so elusive – I only have one piece with snowflakes. I love this one. Yay! Thank you Rosemary!
