    This lap quilt is a gift for a cousin coming for a holiday with us in France, late April. Yes, she is Irish! And I know green is her favourite colour.
    Its 54ins square and quilted with a variegated green King Tut, with green Bottom Line in the bobbin to show up the quilting on the white back.
    Quilted freehand on my 6600 - there are small shamrocks in small dark squares, large shamrock outline in the print squares. I kept the quilting in the borders to a minimum so it remains nice and soft.
    Thanks for looking.

    Your cousin in a very lucky lady. Beautiful quilt and I love the shamrock quilting - it's the perfect touch - the back is just as gorgeous as the top. And I must say how impressed I am that you have completed your project so far in advance!!! You are certainly more organized than I am.

    Well I must say SharonAnn the idea to make my cousin a quilt was there - but no plan, then I fell over the shamrock fabric and just knew what to do with it!
