come hither, heather

is done!!!
look at that quilting!!! it is SO cool!!!
each thistle has its very own knot
and the borders have thistles all the way around
the center and borders are quilted with thistles 
the sashings and blocks are quilted with celtic knots
by Liz Bowman ... she is SO awesome!!!

what could be better?!?

well, how 'bout some hunky guys on the back...
that's right, ORGANIC farmers!!!

this was the last of the tea towel quilts
 till Melissa went surfing and found THIS website...


A man that hoards up riches and enjoys them not,
is like an ass that carries gold and eats thistles.
Richard Burton


  1. Dang that Melissa! Those Irish tea towels are tempting. And with an anniversary on St. Pats day... And you have done it again! These thistles are thrilling! And much softer to the touch than the real ones. Sweet dreams of Jamie under this quilt!

  2. This turned out great! I second that Dang Melissa! I love the Show Me Ireland one! I'm slightly bias since I am of Irish descent! Liz always does a great job!
