my Good Night - Irish Lass quilt

I finished 'my Irish Lass' quilt!
Irish Lass, aka Good Night Irene.

I named it the 'Irish Lass' because
besides the fabrics being
all shamrocks, clover, Celtic knots and shades of green, 

I made it for a beautiful Irish lass,
as a welcome into this German family.

For the shower, the gift theme was holidays...
with a count down not just to the wedding day,
but also to each holiday throughout the year.
It was a cute idea, with many thoughtful and creative gifts.

My assigned holiday was St. Patrick's Day,
so this quilt fit the theme perfectly!
(I loved it a lot, but gifted it anyway. :)
And I think she may have loved it even more,
as there were tears in her eyes.
Which made me have tears in my eyes.
That's always a nice thank you for a quilt,
knowing the receiver loved your work.
Here are a few glamor shots...
the scrappy binding:
and close-ups of the quilting:
'May your Blessings out-number the shamrocks'

The backing was a green-plaid homespun,
which you can just see a peek of in this photo.
My thanks to Terry of Terry's Treasures
for hosting the Good Night Irene sew-along.
The sew-along was my inspiration for this quilt,
along with the stack of green/shamrock fabrics I had stashed in my studio. 

Back in a couple of days - I have Lucy Boston blocks to share!

Happy July Stitching!
