For online information check out www.thegatheringireland.com This is a fun, creative and exciting project called Gathering Stitches and we want all of you readers to be part of it. The idea is to make a quirky patchwork quilt, but it will made with your patchwork squares using memories or stories of what Ireland, Leitrim, or Carrigallen means to you! We are not looking for perfection so anybody can do it. The only limitation is the square, finished size has to be 12” by 12” with a plain border for us to join to the main quilt. You can start today...as many already have. Squares have arrived from faraway places such as Dubai, America, Canada and also closer to home. Pass this on to your relatives around the world and we look forward to hearing from them or alternatively they can visit Carrigallen, Co Leitrim on Tuesday 24 September 2013 for a day of creative fun, entertainment and craic.
