  1. He’s cute! and up early! Early owl gets the shamrock? 🙂 My mom’s side of family were/are Irish…wish to go to the Emerald Isle someday. Until then, shamrocks? Bring ’em on !!!

  2. Lori,
    Happy St. Pat’s to you too! I really like the combination of the quilting in your shamrock quilt – it has the small, linear design the contrasts the soft lines of the shamrocks. I think the two are very effective together.

  3. Just got your book today..LOVE,LOVE,LOVE it! Everyone needs this book- especially beginners…..step by step instructions make it doable for anyone. I’m already waiting for Volume 2…… did I mention I LOVE it?
