    Luck of the Irish

    Several years ago my DH's boss had a baby on St. Pat's day. The baby's name was Kelly so I whipped this little Irish Chain up for her out of some shamrock fabric I had. I handquilted Shamrocks in the plain blocks to further reinforce the "theme". It's nothing fancy but it was appreciated & I thought you might like seeing it.
