Celebration pattern GC215

I’ve been playing around with cakes. Isn’t a cake a wonderful invention. It can say welcome to my house, welcome home or thank you for joining us to celebrate a birthday, birth of a child, an engagement or a wedding. So it is a fitting design to put on a greeting card for just these occassions.

This pattern can be created in two ways – Just Squares or Layered Squares and can use either 1 inch or 3/4 inch squares. It is a design which will have you looking through your embellishment box because for this design you may as well go over the top.

Here are some examples.

Happy St Patricks Day – to all on the 17th.

May you always have…Walls for the wind.                                                                                                A roof for the rain. Tea (or a swift half or two) beside the fire. Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. And all your heart may desire.

I have a tiny bit of Irish blood in me, so I embrace it on St Patricks Day.

Here are a few Paper Quilts which embrace the Irish spirit. Four were commissioned to be patterns for the inaugural International Irish Quilt and Craft  Festival in 2012.
