Moorish Star quilt for Thomas




This quilt has been a LONG time in the making! I won't go into the reasons why, I'm just glad to be able to finally hand it to its new owner.
The design is my own Moorish Star baby quilt and the fabric I've used is from my Granada collection with some vintage linen solid fabric and some homespun cotton.
If you like it you can find a free downloadable pattern for my Moorish Star baby quilt here.


To make it the same as I have you can purchase a Bee and Lotus WOFSY (Width of Fabric Strip Yard) at my Spoonflower shop.
I used wool batting as it will be travelling to London around Christmas time, and boy will baby Thomas need something warm to snuggle into over there! Two more baby quilts to go, one for Myla and one for Toryn.

Many thanks to Danielle for her quilting advice and skills! I'd love to see a more experienced quilter make a version of my design, I am loving my journey into the world of quilts but I certainly do have room for improvement!
I made a different version of this quilt for baby Emma a while back, you can see it here.
