Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I’m wearing green, are you? And I’m sewing with green, too. A sweet, twenty-something, medium green print in my stash claimed my attention and suggested the perfect project – a Buffalo Plaid table topper in green. Referring to a previous blog post, I cut strips 3″ x 21″ of medium green print, white on white, and dark green curls. I strip-pieced and pressed all seams toward the medium green print in both strip-sets.

I cross-cut at 3″ intervals and sewed the top together, alternating the strip-set sub-cuts. Because all seams were pressed toward the medium green print, the seam allowances nested nicely.

After layering the patchwork with batting and backing, I quilted 3/8″ from all seam lines with light sage thread. The straight line grid quilting accentuates the plaid patchwork wonderfully. Bound in the dark green print, the quilt is ready for my table for St. Patrick’s Day and for the spring season.

Remember to check the Sew There! quilt shop Facebook page (Angier, NC) Saturday morning at 9 a.m. EST for the first clue of a mystery table runner that I designed especially to celebrate National Quilting Day 2023.
