I am Irish not that I have ever been to Ireland but my great great Grandmother was from there. With a name like Kathleen I enjoy being green.
To celebrate my heritage I made my daughter an Irish chain quilt in green and white. I hand quilted it with Shamrocks in the white squares. It is just terrific! To this day, I have total quilt envy, I will have to make one for me! She is now 30 and has never really done anything with the quilt, it is just fun for her to have for someday!
It is funny how Americans love to embrace their ethnicity for countries that are only vague family memories. What the heck, it gives you more quilts to make.
Pictured below is my mother, the baby in the lap, with the center woman being the source of our Celtic pride.
