Are you short on St. Patrick’s Day decor? Well, you’re in luck (get it? 😉) today! I’ve got a bunch of Shamrock and Rainbow sewing projects and ideas for March! Everything from quilt blocks, to felt shamrocks, and rainbow quilts both big and small. Most of these are quick, low-effort projects you can finish fast.
Even if you’re not looking to make anything right away, pin this image to find later. And just enjoy the eye candy and let these cheerful projects lift your spirits!
Rainbow Sewing Projects
A Rainbow has lucky March connections, but definitely isn’t limited to March. These happy rainbow projects are a perfect pick-me-up anytime of the year.
Amy Chappell of Ameroonie Designs is a queen of rainbow projects. Here are a few more from Amy:

Okay, these quilts aren’t a quick finish, but I couldn’t make a list of rainbow projects and not include them. This is my favorite scrap quilt pattern called Scrap Happy Rainbow Connection.
And here’s another fun one: this quilt pattern is called Sunshowers by Megan Collins
And how is this for an adorable St. Patrick’s Day quilt – with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?! This quilt pattern is called Lucky and it’s from Pen and Paper Patterns.
And if you’re short on time to sew before St. Patricks Day, but still want a little way to celebrate – Polkadot Chair has a cute St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow printable gift jar idea.

Gingham Shamrock zippy-pouches – would be a fun little treat bag or teacher gift

And I couldn’t have St. Patrick’s Day post with out sharing my Ireland Flags quilt. This one is a little more bittersweet, but sentimental to me.
Happy March y’all! (We made it!)
