Lucky Shamrock Block

Welcome to Quilt Block Mania for February 2021! This month’s theme was “Lucky Charms”. I made a shamrock quilt last spring but the blocks were not the right size for Quilt Block Mania, so I did a little re-working and here is the updated pattern.

This is a simple pattern that I have designed as a foundation paper pieced pattern, but I think some of you could probably do an improv block that would look much the same.

This block is really versatile because as you turn it and possibly add some plain blocks the whole design can change. On the right is the quilt I made last year. My goal was to make an easy pieced quilt that was all straight lines. This pattern is available HERE.

This years pattern is a little bit more complex. It uses a Foundation Paper Pieced (FPP) leaf block pattern that you need to print and sew three for each block. There is also a stem block. I really like the change I made in the stem because it lends itself to some secondary patterns.

Here I have used 16 blocks (just like in the example above) and turned them inwards in groupings of four. I like the crosses that form- along with the wonky stars. It seems like it has a bit of a Celtic feeling to it.

I think that you will come up with many ways to use this block- maybe just a simple table runner would be lovely!
