The month of March is most famous for St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday honoring Ireland’s foremost saint, St. Patrick and Irish culture. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day here is a great traditional Irish quilt to make this month and to use for future Irish holidays and celebrations. Even if you aren’t Irish this is a great quilt for spring.
This quilt is called Road to Ireland, by M’liss Rae Hawley in her Fat Quarter Quilts book. The quilt has a simple Irish chain pattern that is nice and works well with spring colors perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish chain is a common technique that can be made in various ways to resemble simple chains or more advanced such as the Celtic chain or a double chain as well. However, a simple Irish chain is great for beginners. Simply pick your favorite style of the Irish chain and start quilting!
This quilt size is small and measures about 36 x 65. This quilt is made from strips of fabric with a light green border. Stay active on Quilter’s Thread Mobile App to earn points to win monthly patterns. For more information go to Quilter’s Thread Mobile App and click on “Local Offers”.
