Here's my Treasures from Ireland block. I love the background fabric... too bad I didn't buy more of it!

Everyone’s back from the holidays and the instructions for the Treasures from Ireland block are online and ready to go! As I wrote in a previous blog, one of the things I think of when I think of Ireland are the many people who emigrated from Ireland to the U.S. (and other countries). They took with them their songs and their laughter, their wit and their bravery, and they added so much to whichever country became their home. The center of the block represents the richness of Irish culture and the flying geese represent those wonderful emigrants leaving Ireland (taking their heritage with them) and enriching the world. Thank you, Ireland!

Block #5 will be making an appearance shortly, and there will be a fabric giveaway along with it! We’ll keep you posted!

    What is wrong? All this block went together until the final step, the four corner triangles. They are not big enough. I have laid it aside for now, but when I sewed the first one on, I found it wasn’t a good fit. Now I will have to unsew and cut larger square. May I suggest? Seems it would be better to cut whole squares for the corners and sew three rows together instead of the triangles.

    Hi Dorothy, I double-checked the pattern and it’s correct, so I’m not sure where you ran into trouble. Did you perhaps cut the 4 1/4″ squares in half twice diagonally instead of once? Please fill me in and I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. Thanks, Laura

    Yes, that’s it! Thanks I get back to it now.

    Do you know how many Irish Quilt blocks in all you’ll be designing ? See a defininte layout emerging in my mind but am afraid to begin as following blocks may disrupt the layout. You’ve done an exceptional job with the 4 you’ve designed so far, keep up the good work.
