    My Ireland Memory Quilt

    I went to Ireland with 5 girlfriends in Sept. This is what I came up with, a lot of celtic knots on embroidery machine,again from emb. machine Irish animals ,little boy and girl to represent Celtic dancers. The center panel is a tea towel with map of Ireland. I wanted to include flowers but it was already a bit too busy.The corners are coasters I bought there. Besides label on back I added a pic of the 6 of us.

    Wait--did I see you in Ireland in Sept? LOL--we visited too and can't wait to go back. Wish I'd been as smart as you and bought one of those tea towels--great memory quilt!

    great use of the Ireland panel, such a nice memory quilt.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
