Friday Free Quilt Patterns: Tales of Ireland

Patterson Kathy 225px 150x150 Friday Free Quilt Patterns: Tales of IrelandHappy New Year, everyone! I hope your holiday season has been full of family, friends, and fun. It may be that you’ve been on a bit of a quilting hiatus due to all the holiday festivities, so if you’re ready to get back to your sewing space, this week’s Friday Freebie could be just the inspiration you need.

Did you know there are only 76 days to St. Patrick’s Day? That’s right, just 11 weekends stand between us and Thursday, March 17, 2016. If you’ve admired our free Tales of Ireland quilt pattern…if an Irish-themed quilt is on your do-to list…if you’re looking for a project with lots of variety and opportunities for customization…I invite you to start your own Tales of Ireland quilt TODAY. A new challenge to start a new year of quilting! Let’s take a look:

Tales of Ireland finishes 60 1/2″ x 75 1/2″, a lovely lap size quilt

Pretty spectacular, yes? The block patterns are SO much fun with their Celtic names, assortment of techniques, and in some cases Irish-themed prints. If your stash includes a good variety of green fabrics, you truly can start this quilt today. The free pattern is a bit unusual, consisting of 12 separate block patterns and a final pattern for the border blocks, sashing, border, and binding. We recommend this free Irish quilt pattern for intermediate quilters, but a brave, confident beginner could also be successful with it.

If you start today and do two blocks a week (or each weekend), you’ll have a little over a month left for quilt top assembly, quilting, and binding. Totally achievable! And everyone will love your new St. Patrick’s Day quilt.

    I keep trying to get to each of the block patterns for this quilt and am directed back in a circle to the block index without actually getting to them! Can you help?

  4. Kathy says:

    Sydney, we are experiencing technical problems with our entire Block Index this morning. Our IT department is working on it. Please check back later and hopefully we will have this ironed out! And thanks for the heads up! -Kathy-

  5. Sydney Bonham says:

    Kathy, I’m SOOO disappointed! Instead of spending the weekend sewing blocks for this Celtic quilt, I’m STILL trying to get to the block patterns! Sometimes I can’t even get to the McCall’s site! Is this ever going to be fixed?

  6. Sydney Bonham says:

    Thank you, Kathy, for all your help – but I’m still not able to get to the blocks! My computer keeps giving me the message “This site can’t be verified” and won’t take me there! Guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait till your IT works their magic!
