  1. We have a teacher at our Irish dance school who is an avid quilter and lovely person. She has no kids of her own but she is a bit of an “auntie” to all the kids. By day she is a geologist, and in her spare time she loves all things Celtic.

  2. My husband’s cousin quilts a lot, belongs to a quilters club, and goes on quilting retreats. She loves to personalize quilts according to a person’s interest. I wonder if it would be too much of a hint to give her this book. She knows I write Irish-themed books. Oh, well! I’d love to give it to her anyway. She’d love it.

  3. Well, as luck would have it, I’m a quilter and am currently working on a baby quilt, not Celtic designed, sigh, but not bad for all that. One of my favorite pieces that I have done is an Irish Chain wall hanging for my daughter’s bedroom.

    I suppose it would be too much to promise a Celtic quilt for the Fireside? Hee hee.

  4. I began quilting a year ago and have become totally addicted to it! I was asked by the local quilt shop to work there part time and feel like I’m getting my own personal quilting lesson every time someone walks in the door! It is wonderful. I hope to try all different types of patterns in the coming years and think the Irish chain is particularly beautiful. The Celtic book looks facinating! I was also surprised to find how friendly and kind most quilters are and how they love to share ideas, patterns & projects.

  5. I am a quilter and am always looking for something new and different to keep my passion challenging and interesting. Since I love all things Irish, I would love to take on making a Celtic quilt to display in my home or to give to one of my friends who also love all things Irish. I can imagine that the patterns in this book will be not only beautiful, but meaningful. It would be a special treat to receive this book!

  6. Quilting is an amazing way to pass down the legends and stories from one generation to the next. I believe that was the original purpose for the quilt. I would be gonored to be considered for rhis gift.

  7. My quilting daughter and I had plans to make each of us a wall hanging with a map of old Ireland; each province in a different green fabric, blue water, and Irish icon symbols for the quilting. We still have the pattern…..

  8. I’d love to be able to do that, but alas, I’m not that handy! Don’t enter me in the drawing – I just wanted to say I envy all of you who can do it. One day….

  9. Actually, a lot of what quilting consists of is just sewing, either by hand or machine. As opposed to crochet or knitting, or even tatting (I suppose some people still tat. I tried it once and made a huge knot).

  10. I assigned each of you a number and ran them through http://www.random.org.

    The book is going to Dianna Smith. Congratulations!

  11. Congratulations, Dianna! Something like that should go to a special person who will treasure and use it. Perhaps we can see a picture of a quilt some day? Always looking for new ideas!

  12. Congrats to Dianna, my mother! And thanks to Corey and Liam! Quilting has become her passion and she’s quite good at it. When my husband and I decided to go to Ireland for our honeymoon, she became just as enamored with the Emerald Isle as us. She will thoroughly enjoy this book and I promise that when she does complete a quilt from it, I will ensure she sends a picture to you!

  13. Thank you so much for the quilting book. I’m excited to learn about Irish and Celtic designs! This site was referred to me by my daughter, Jessica, and I am really enjoying it. Thanks again:)

  14. I stumbled across this blog. How fun to see my Celtic Fantasy being given as a gift. Dianna, congratulations!
