St. Patrick’s Day is all about green clothes, green beer and, for crafters, green quilts. In honor of the Irish holiday, choose any of the patterns below and start stitching a quilt that’s sure to leave others feelin’ green with envy.
1. Four Leaf Clover Block
Bust your scraps and make a simple-yet-festive block. This four-leaf clover can be sewn into a pillow, incorporated into a table runner or larger quilt, or just framed and hung on the wall for some stitchy decor.
2. Lucky Mug Rug
When there isn’t enough time to work up a whole quilt, small but festive projects (like mug rugs!) are the golden ticket. This one is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Irish coffee, and it’ll use up those green fabric scraps in your bin.
3. Luck of the Irish Chain Quilt
Forget subtlety — between the Irish chains and appliqué shamrock, this quilt is loud and proud Irish.
4. Division Quilt
Whether you’re making a baby quilt or one to drape on your queen-sized bed, jelly rolls are the way to successfully completing this dreamy pattern.
