here's a little bit of green to honor St. Patrick's Day. this plate is in my china collection, passed down to me from my grandmothers.
this particular plate was made by W. H. Grindley & Company in England. The pattern is Lincoln-green, and measures 27 cm wide. As best i can date it, the plate is over 100 years old.
It's resting on my green Irish Chain quilt, named "My Wild Irish Rose". the quilt was made in 2003, and is machine pieced and hand quilted by me.
here's a closer view of the lovely daisies and ferns on the plate.
(and a little bit of the quilting thrown in for good measure)
The quilt squares measure 1.5 inches each, 1.75 on the diagonal.
