    clover- shamrock patterns

    Hi quilters
    Does anyone have some quick easy patterns for clovers or shamrocks? Trying to make table runner. Can't find one I really like yet. Thanks for your help.

    Would this idea work? It's just three "snowballs" with a stem thru the fourth segment.

    I just made a couple just cutting shamrocks out of news paper then the fabric. I am fusing mine then machine stitching around. My technique is very simple. I use something circular, draw 3 circles overlapping each other, and add a short or long stem. Think of the shamrock in its simplified form. Just play with it.

    I decide on the size I want and then cut out 3 hearts and applique them down point to point, then add a stem out of same fabric or bias tape. Haven't tried pieced ones.

    If you Google pieced shamrock you will find a lot of free patterns.

    Last year I made a St. Patty's Day wall hanging ... I used the same pattern I did for the ♥'s for Valentine's Day, putting 3 together.

    As Tartan suggested ... just Google and you'll find lots of possibilities!

    I bought some cardboard Shamrocks at the dollar store and traced them onto my fabric. Did the same with Hearts.
