My Irish eyes are smiling

Map of Ireland quilt

We just got back from a trip to Ireland with my daughter, husband and in-laws. It was a lot of fun. We went to Dublin, Galway, Connemarra Mountains, Ashford Castle and Cong Abbey, the Cliffs of Moher, Woodstock, and O'Briensbridge.

There wasn't much quilting going on but I did get a quarter meter of one print. The one shop I found had almost all fabric that is from the US, at a considerably higher price than here. I did find a very small exhibit of local quilts in Galway, though. That was a nice surprise!

Galway Icons quilt

Galway (great inspiration for some applique, too)
