My Shamrock Quilt
Irish Cross and Chain is the name of the quilt. It is featured in my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar (now out of print, but for sale in my Etsy store on CD). I show this every year in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. It's the wearin' of the green!

Double Irish Cross (10") is the March 17 block (for St. Patrick's Day, right?) I raw edge appliquéd the hearts, but they could just as easily be done by hand. I first stitched the rotary cut cream and green squares and rectangles and then put the four hearts over top.

I hope you will look in your stash for some green fabrics and give a thought to making a Double Irish Chain quilt.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you (on Wednesday, the 17th)!
