Saint Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day quilt

Perfect for Saint Patrick's Day and finished just in time!!

Everybody seems to be decorating with all kinds of items featuring red vintage trucks. When I spotted these green vintage trucks I couldn't resist bringing a few yards home with me!

I made a simple Irish Chain using only two different blocks, but, since there are several different trucks,  I think it has a boost of character.

The truck blocks were each cut 6 1/2 inches square and are 6 inches finished. The Nine Patches are also 6 inches finished. Each of the 5 green and 4 light squares were cut 2 1/2 inches (2" finished) to achieve a 6 1/2 inch unfinished block (which is 6" finished).   I added a 2 inch (cut 2 1/2") green framing border and a 4 inch (cut 4 1/2") light outer border. I used the same green for the backing and wrapped it around for the binding.

This is a nice sized throw ideal for decorating and snuggling.

Happy quilting,
