A little Luck O' the Irish!

The St. Patrick's Day wall hanging is done, bringing some luck to my house with a touch of green!  Quilt size is 30"x 38"
The quilting features cross hatching around the Celtic knots (a tutorial for the knots can be found on the tutorial page);  heart shaped feathers in the white border;  a curlique fill around the shamrockand a filled in swirl on the shamrock since the two colors were so close in value.

Quilting was done with my new favorite thread, Glide.  I've had no breaks or shreds, and love the bit of sheen this thread has.  It's been a joy to work with!  You can find it at (the folks there are really nice), or contact your local quilt shop.

Happy Quilting!


  1. That is so beautiful, Susan! Do you quilt on a long arm machine? Your quilting is just outstanding.
