Moroccan Lanterns Quilt

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 4.52.35 PM

My newest pattern is here! Yay!

Moroccan Lanterns was inspired by a Turkish rug that I saw online. As soon as I saw that rug, I thought, “That looks like a quilt.” Then I thought, “That needs to BE a quilt!” And now it is. : )

No paper-piecing on this one, you guys! Just regular ol’ piecing, with a quarter-inch seam and everything. I did my version in lots of bright, vibrant jewel tones. Most of the prints are from Allison Glass’s Sun Print collection, although I did throw in a few oddball prints here and there.

Once again, the stunning quilting was done by Stephanie from Late Night Quilter. Once again, Steph did it up. All I had to do was tell her the name of the quilt, and from there she came up with a perfect, Moroccan-inspired design that I loved! Everyone—and I do mean everyone—who stopped by my booth at Quilt Market a few weeks ago had to ask who did my quilting! Thank you, Stephanie! : )

And as always, I’m celebrating the release of my new pattern by putting it on sale! Now through Sunday, you can buy the PDF pattern for just $4.99! (ETA: This sale is now over.) Click here to purchase it from my pattern shop, or here to purchase from Craftsy.

    I attempted to buy the pattern, PayPal couldn't process the payment. Any chance there is any other way to pay? Email is Vicenza 74 at g mail dot com Thanks much

    I love this quilt and purchased it some time ago. A friend commissioned me to make it for her so I'm working on fabric selection. She wants to use purples/creams/grey. I love the contrast that you achieved with the jewel tones and am worried about achieving that same impact with such a limited color palette. Any advice for me?

    I would really like to purchase this pattern. What is the size of this quilt? Is it possible to make it larger because I like to make queen size quilts. Thank you!

      Hi Jody! The finished quilt is 64″ x 80″. It would be possible to make it larger by adding more rows, but not the easiest thing in the world – it would require quite a bit of quilt math! Another option would be to make it as shown, then add more background fabric around the sides so that the 64″ x 80″ pieced area is centered on the bed when the quilt is finished. I hope that helps!
