There's no denying that my dads side of the family is just a wee bit Irish. My grandmother on my dads side was about 5' tall with red hair. One of the most happy go lucky little ole gals you could ever meet. And she was a quilter in her later years. Inspiring me in so many ways. After digging through all my pictures for hours I could find no pictures of grandma. However I did find this one of my cute little ole dad. All he needs is a little green suit and a pot of gold. He too has a wonderful spirit that people are drawn to. My kids love to visit grandpa and listen to many stories that I've heard a million times. Not only does dad have an amazing talent for telling stories, he also never forgets a name. If you can't tell by now I'm a wee bit of a daddy's girl. I could go on and on about his many wonderful talents and accomplishments. How about instead I share a few Irish quilt projects that will make you dance a wee little jig!
What would I do without Pinterest? It helps me to keep track of all the great free projects that I'd like to make. Lindsy Weight over at Fort Worth fabric studio designed and shared a tutorial for this happy little pillow. Just a wee bit cute!
Amanda aka Jedi Craft girl designed and shared her Lucky pillow. This one has a zippered closure in the back and a wee bit more applique. It's a fun way to learn a new skill such as installing a zipper.
Although this ones not green it's 100% Irish. You can find this great tutorial for an Irish Chain over at MessyJesse's. Uses a wee bit of scraps in the large 18.5 blocks.
So were you a wee bit inspired today? Are you a wee bit tired of the phrase "wee bit"? Well if you want a WEE BIT more inspirations just take a look at the linkies over at Free Motion by the River.
