St.Patrick’s Day has come and gone, I know, but the Irish blessing on this quilted table topper is suitable for any time of the year. And it certainly has the look of spring! Additionally, March is National Quilting Month, and there are still a few March days left.
It’s hard to read circular text. The blessing says:
May the road rise to meet you, may the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the wind always be at your back, and rains fall soft on your fields.
I pray this blessing for all my genuine Irish friends and all those who were Irish in spirit on March 17th. To all I say Sláinte!
This project is not only fun to make, but it is a scrap stash buster! With a different center block and other colors, it could be made to fit any season or holiday. The center Irish blessing design and Celtic knots in each corner both are from San Francisco Stitch Company. https://sanfranstitchco.com/collections/st-patrickss-day/products/irish-blessing-tablerunner?variant=39823176728744
