360 Shamrocks


Yup, I quilted 360 little shamrocks on this, the happiest quilt I've seen in a long time. First of all, I love French Braid quilts, especially the ones with the black strip to make it look like stained glass.

Then, there is the happy rainbow and shamrock print that my customer chose for the focus fabric.

I think she picked her colors for the rainbow bands very well, don't you?

I suggested doing a little leaf motif through the bands, and she asked “can you make them little shamrocks?” Oh, yeah. I'll figure out how to do that, I thought cautiously....

We were both very happy with the results.
