This is the second Irish quilt that I have made. My sister asked me to make it for my nephew.
The Irish Blessing is in the very center of the quilt.
The first Irish quilt I made was for my Mom and she gave it back to me before she passed away. It is what I consider an heirloom quilt. I also appliqued these same critters on it. But I hand embroidered all others.
I embroidered the last names of both sides of family with maiden names and the counties in Ireland where family came from.
This is the label I put on it.
These were hand quilted on the solid green blocks.
