Feeling Lucky: St. Patrick’s Day Quilting Projects

It’s starting to thaw out a little here in Colorado and it has us shamrock-dreaming! St. Patrick’s Day is on the horizon and we wanted to make sure that we shared our favorite St. Paddy’s Day-inspired quilts, table runners, and other festive projects with you in case you’re feeling the need to indulge in a little St. Patrick’s quilting as well. We hope you enjoy and cheers!


Feeling a little bit Irish? Try making this lovely throw or wall quilt by Wendy Sheppard. The pieced blocks are made using the simple Stich-and-Flip method and then they are centered around a clump of clovers that are created with machine applique.

If you like traditional blocks but love modern colors, this pattern is exactly what you are looking for. Taking a modern approach on the Irish Chain block, Heather Kojan has designed a fun queen-sized quilt. Originally featured in Modern Patchwork.

Irish and non-Irish quilters alike will want to make and display this table runner. Saint Patrick’s projects are as rare as four-leaf clovers, so after you make yours, you might want to make this runner for your lucky friends too!


This small quilt is a traditional Irish chain quilt—with a touch more Irish charm! The four-leaf clover quilt block and the faux piped binding make this quilt special.


Simple to piece blocks are a fun cross between Irish Chain and Jacob’s Ladder blocks in this adorable 72 1/2″ x 96 1/2″ twin quilt. Try a scrappy look with a white background as shown, or dig up all your favorite prints in any palette you choose; either way, you’ll make a great quilt quickly.
