A Font for Patrick A Font for Patrick
By: Dinah Tackett, New Mexico, USA

This quilt was done for a Guild challenge of Holiday or Season. And for me personally, a challenge to work with free motion stitching.
The image I was trying for is a shrine in the woods with a small spring in front of it.

Irish Irish

The pattern is from Patrick Lose’s Poster Quilts book. It is appliqued and quilted. I made another one to give to a cousin who has her Irish citizenship. Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.

Irish Chain times 3 Irish Chain times 3
By: I Am Just One Mom, New Mexico, USA

This triple Irish Chain quilt was made for an O’BRIEN family fundraising event for my cousin’s son. I put the final stitches on it on the flight to the fundraiser. And then my sweet husband outbid everyone (and my smart cousins caught onto his plan & pumped up the bids for such a good cause)!

Noriko's Bear Paw Noriko’s Bear Paw
By: Kitty, California, USA

Noriko hand-drew templates – hand-cut patches – & hand-pieced 11 blocks + 2 corner units of block #12 before giving them to me when she moved. I machine pieced block #12 – altering the design slightly and used the remaining patches for 3 blocks on the back. See my post Saturday for the full story.
