Celtic Zodiac Quilt Square (Designs by Nikki Foley)

When we traveled to Ireland in 2012 with Carolyn and Barb, we bought a few Irish quilting magazines.  During our January retreat, the four of us (the Galway Girls) decided to make an Irish quilt square to remember our trip to Ireland.  We each made a quilt square of an animal that represented a Celtic Zodiac sign from the “Irish Quilting” magazine.  We didn’t pick our own zodiac signs but we chose an animal that we liked.  imageBarb and I picked the “Salmon” – August 5 to September 1st.  Mary chose the “Swan” – September 2 – 29.  Carolyn chose the “Cat” – January 21 – 17 February. I used fusible web and a blanket stitch for the appliqué pieces.  I plan to put my completed quilt square on a stretcher frame to hang in the house.  I added a border so that I would have fabric to wrap around the frame.  Finished size with border is about 22″ square.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.
