Limerick

Last year around this time my BQF Aimee convinced me to join the Irish Chain Sewical hosted by Amanda at  A Craft Fox.  

This was a great pandemic project.  The sewing itself was mostly mindless strip piecing but there are a lot of square is this quilt and at times it was a challenge to keep everything straight.

So many strip sets!!!

This was perfect for binge watching Bridgerton.

Given that state of things this had to be made 100% from stash.  I was surprised by how thin my selection of low volume fabrics was but I made myself stretch to find enough fabrics to make it work.

This turned out a bit bigger than I'm comfortable quilting on my home machine and since I already had a pile going to my good friend Rebecca I added this one for her to longarm.  I told her of my vague concept for a swirly meander with shamrocks but gave her carte blanche to work her magic.  

Obviously she understood the assignment- the quilting totally makes this one!

And now my foyer is ready for St. Patrick's Day.  May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door!
