Lucky Clover

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and I couldn't resist making a new wall hanging, full of clover and chains of green. Introducing Lucky Clover, featuring that forever elusive but very charming four-leaf clover.

Celebrating not only that special March 17 day, but with the freshness of all that green, Lucky Clover is welcome sight for spring.

Ready to see the whole Lucky Clover wall hanging? Here it is, laying in a field of green grass, and the only clover present in this backyard - hubby does a fantastic job of maintaining the grass.

This 48" x 48" beauty also hangs beautifully, as seen on our fence.

While I was finishing up the quilting, adding a few clovers in the stippling,

hubby was outside, pulling a clover look-alike, oxalis, from our side yard. Later, he told me how he found it so ironic that I was quilting clover, and he was pulling (what he thought was) clover. He detests both weeds!

Me, I tend to see the beauty in all living things, and don't stress too much over a few weeds. But hubby is happier to see them in fabric than in his lawn!

Maybe this wall hanging can be interpreted as having the clover under control with the interlocking chains. Though those chains look complex due to all the weaving and twisting of colors, they're really easy to put together.

And all of that white thread in the white background plus the straight lines of the chains made for a great pattern on the backside - check it out!

I just love it when there's back art!
