st-patricks day

It’s time … for our Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Quilter’s Blog Hop. We have more than 120 bloggers participating in this party. I hope you’ll visit all the participants, check out their blogs and enter their give-aways.

Michele Foster's Facebook profile

If you’re new here to the Quilting Gallery .. welcome! I’m Michele Foster, aka Mishka, your hostess for the blog hop party and owner of this web site. I hope you’ll spend a few minutes checking out the various sections of my site including:

I also host swaps and other various events which you’ll find in the Quilter’s Fun section. Each week I host a weekly themed quilt contest too. Vote now for the Baby Quilts or enter the Hexagons contest for next week.

Weekly Themed Quilt Contests

You can keep in touch by subscribing to my weekly newsletter or our Facebook group.


I have two give-aways for you to enter. First, head over to the latest post from the Learning Center, Fabric Styles, and enter the give-away of a Moda Fat Quarter Bundle donated by the Fat Quarter Shop. Share your fabric style and enter this give-away here!

Second, I’m giving away five copies of Melissa’s Twirling Around pattern. This is a PDF file, so you’ll receive it right away once the winners are selected.


There’s a story to this pattern. It’s Melissa’s first published pattern and all proceeds are being donated to charity. But, that’s not all, this pattern is being sold exclusively by Julie of The Intrepid Thread and Julie is matching all proceeds and donating to charity too. I just love this… quilters are so very generous. I wanted to contribute, so I purchased five copies to give-away to you, my blog readers.

Now, because it’s for such a good cause, I do want to encourage you to purchase Twirling Around too. It’s just $6.00 going directly to charity and with Julie matching the proceeds, that’s $12.00 to help others in need. If you should win a copy from me, you can give it to a friend or give it away on your own blog.

To enter the give-away: leave a comment below telling me if you have/had any special plans for St. Patrick’s Day. Five random winners will be selected March 24th. The give-away is open to everyone.

    I love that the pattern supports charity! What a great thing to do! We had no special St Patrick’s day plans – my kids enjoyed their green milk though.

  5. Kristen says:

    I went to a friend’s wedding on St. Patrick’s Day – I’m not Irish, so I forgot and didn’t wear any green. But I saw plenty of people walking around who did! Thanks for the chance to win and for organizing the party!

  6. Ada Shave says:

    I wore green on St. Patrick’s Day, and would love to win your quilt pattern.

  7. Sharon S says:

    I collect fabric to use in our free quilt classes at our library. We then donate the quilts to the local nursing home. Any and all donated fabric is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  8. terri swisher says:

    I collect fabric for making fabric postcards. This would go a long way to making a lot of cards.

  9. Cathy D says:

    We went out for dinner and followed it with a cruise through student neighbourhoods to see their shenanigans.

  10. Sharon Leinart says:

    Plans for St. Patty’s Day? Nope, had foot surgery; have to keep my foot elevated for 6 wks now. But, I do have plans for sewing, sewing, and more sewing after I get my foot cast off. Hopefully, I will be the winner and have some new “fabric” to sew with. Thanks in advance…I love your blog and website!

  11. Nancysue says:

    We tried to wear our festive St. Patty’s day green garb, but it was sooo hot here in Maryland, we couldn’t wear our family green turtlenecks. So we went with green shorts :) Yep, that’s right! In March! Regular errands of the day became special ….in green shorts in March!

  12. Linda Dixon says:

    Saint Patrick’s day came and went like every other day in retirement. It was just another day to celebrate my freedom and be thankful for a wonderful day

  13. Cheryl Unger says:

    Beautiful fabrics!!

  14. Karen Propes says:

    Love St Patty’s Day, we wear green, hang a green hat on our front porch and eat a big Irish dinner.

  15. shirley tener says:

    I love Julie and her Esty shop was great, I just recently designed a bundle with her and she really had to help me, the customer service is great and the new website is gonna be good too. I am not Irish but I sure love celebrating ! I bought fabric and joined my first Sew along.

  16. Mary Grace McNamara says:

    My daughter does Irish Step Dancing and her group danced at a nursing home on St. Patrick’s day!

    I just found this thru This-n-That fabrics, I’m also a new quilter and blogging. I’m hoping to spend more time here and to get involved as my skills build. Your Twirling Around pattern looks just right for a beginner for a newbie like me. I love to spend St. Patrick’s Day with fresh hot homemade scones, Irish Breakfast Tea and my book of Celtic Myths in front of my fireplace. I’m hoping that I have better luck leaving a comment here as I have had lots of troubles here on my 1st blog hop but know that I will be a loyal follower that is for sure!! Thank you for the chance to win, for opening the blog world up to me. HAGD

    As to the question of what my style would be considered to be traditional of the Civil War Era fabrics. I love the muted colors of an era gone by. I’m a beginner quilter and I do doll quilts to learn new patterns. I have always liked the warmer shades of color. Some day I’m be able to expand on that. Thank you for a chance to win and HAGD
