St.Patrick's Day Quilt Patterns


According to Barbara Brackman's Encyclopeida of Pieced Quilt Patterns, Yellow Clover was a block design first published by Nancy Cabot for the Chicago Tribune. It is one of the hundreds of Cabot patterns sold by mail order during the 1930's. And I not only found a free pattern for making it, but I've also collected a list of additional free St. Patrick's Day or Irish themed quilt block and quilt patterns. I've added so many new ones that I thought I'd share...Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Kermit (Keira's litter sister) on a String Quilt done in St. Patrick's fabrics and claiming it as her own. I'm pretty sure she was meowing to 'When Irish Eyes are Smiling' at the same time...
