Saint Patrick's Day
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.
