My Finished Quilt
Featured Pattern - Smiling Irish Eyes
These miniature quilts have an Irish theme – shamrocks, a Celtic quilt block and Irish chain blocks. Instructions provide for oversized units that are cut down with the use of the recommended rulers. This makes miniature quilts a breeze. The table topper finished 21" x 21" and the vertical wall quilt finished 8" x 20".
