St. Patrick's Day is all about green clothes, green beer and, for crafters, green quilts. In honor of the Irish holiday, choose any of the patterns below and start stitching a quilt that's sure to leave others feelin' green with envy.
1. Shamrock Block
Bust your scraps and make a simple-yet-festive block. This four-leaf clover can be sewn into a pillow, incorporated into a table runner or larger quilt, or just framed and hung on the wall for some stitchy decor.
2. Crown Jewels Quilt
The secret to piecing this intricate design: organization. Choose your quilt size, then create an orderly color placement system to pull off the truly stunning effect.
3. Out of the Box Quilt
Quarter-sized triangles and scrappy binding make this quilt totally fat-quarter friendly and super easy to make.
4. Squared-Off Rhapsody Quilt
This beginner-friendly pattern is easy to build without sacrificing any wow-factor, as the blocks frame gorgeous 10" squares in all the right ways.
5. Flock Together Rhapsody
You know what they say: blocks of a feather flock together! Four- and nine-bird blocks are set with half-square triangles, creating a delightful design that wings along with movement.
6. Starry Path Quilt
Practice piecing perfect points as three different triangle units come together in two unique star blocks. New to the technique? You can learn to make 'em all in our Startup Project: Starry Path Quilt class.
7. Puzzle Collage
This quilt may look as intricate as a 1,000-piece puzzle, but there's a secret to solving it: stitch-and-trim units, which come together to create that gorgeous braided effect. Create each block, stitch the rows together and soon enough you'll have a magically finished quilt.
8. Lucky Mug Rug
When there isn't enough time to work up a whole quilt, small but festive projects ( like mug rugs! ) are the golden ticket. This one is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Irish coffee , and it'll use up those green fabric scraps in your bin.
9. Luck of the Irish Chain Quilt
Forget subtlety — between the Irish chains and appliqué shamrock, this quilt is loud and proud Irish.
10. Division Quilt
11. Stained Glass in Green
This project is perfect for beginner quilters who need to bust scraps. The simple square motifs come together so fast, you can stitch the whole thing up in a day.
