    Please does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get a Bells of Ireland applique pattern or any other Irish themed appliques or blocks. I am making an irish chained quilt for my sister-in-law's 70th birthday so these would make great "fillers" as she loves all things floral.

    the only irish-themed applique type quilting project i've ever seen was an irish chain quilt with little baskets appliqued in the open spaces. very pretty.
    you could do the same thing and embroider the belles of ireland flowers in the openings.

    sorry. that's the best i can do.

    at this site there are good pics of the flower, so maybe you can trace and embroider.
