Happy St. Patricks Day

Do you love the colour green?  Here is a chance to win 12 fat quarters!

I wanted to share a bit of my luck with you.  I received this little package of fat quarters as a door prize from JN Harper Co. when they held their open house in Toronto last spring.  It was too late to share it then so I saved it to give as a prize this year on St Patty’s day.

  1. My favourite colour is green—
    About it I’m really quite keen!
    I am not Irish—don’t really care about ol’ Patrick;
    But I am Canadian, so I like a hat trick!
    But I’d really rather sew,
    As I’m sure all you quilters know.
    And maybe in my dreams
    I’ll make a quilt all of greens.
    😜

  2. Hey Mom…”please make me a quilt”, my daughter said —“ i want it big enough to cover my bed”.
    I changed the blade in my rotary cutter, So as I might cut through fabric – just like butter.
    The fabrics were GREEN – so many pieces! I ironed each one to get rid of the creases.
    Could I make a bright quilt top — (Bound before the Easter Bunny would HOP?)
    Oh! No cause for alarm. Sandy works “magic” with her designs and longarm!
    LOL😊

  3. Green, green is the sheen on my patches of green.
    Sew it together,
    Bind it right and quilt it in a patty to keep you tight in the night. Goodnight.

  4. There once was a quilter named Sandy,
    With her long-arm, she is quite handy,
    She’ll stitch and she’ll sew
    Back and forth she will go,
    Then she’ll treat herself to a brandy.

    Irish brandy that is. Hahaha just kidding – don’t want to start any rumours here!

  5. There once was a gal from Toronto,
    Whose blog you’d want to get on to.
    Finished quilts galore,
    she stacks by her door
    quicker than you’d ever get ’round to.

    I sew, but not quick enough.
    So, to Sandy I bring my stuff.
    Pick a thread, pick a pattern,
    edge to edge or custom pattern

    Presto (it seems) and it’s done!
    Now sew the binding, stitch a sleeve,
    sew a label, that’s all it needs,
    and you’re ready to start your next creation!

  6. This beautiful bundle of green
    To quilt with it I would be keen
    If the contest I win
    A shamrock I’ll sew-in
    And St. Paddy will want it seen

  7. I love green,
    In every shade,
    I love it even,
    When it fades.

    It reminds me of forests,
    And leprechauns,
    St. Paddy’s Day,
    And dewy, spring lawns.

    Green’s a colour,
    That lasts,
    And is,
    Not trendy.

    No wonder,
    It makes,
    Other colours,
    Green with envy.

    Thanks! Gayle

  8. I just wanna quilt, I have no guilt.
    Hungry for dinner? Wait, you’ll be thinner!
    Laundry to do? Just wear your shoes.
    I have no guilt, I’m just gonna quilt!

  9. There once was a gal from Toronto,
    Who was moving into a condo.
    She boxed up her stash
    Was completely awash,
    Cause she couldn’t quilt like she wanted to.

    Yes, we’re moving April 2 and my house looks like a storage locker. Between a musician and a quilter and our household goods, we probably have close to 200 boxes!!! Arggggg! Looking forward to setting up my new quilting space.
