Moroccan Tiles - OMG Finish

I am super excited to share with you my completed quilt top flimsy for the Midnight Mystery Quilt Along. Because of my fabric choice (batiks), the block arrangement, and the addition of the diamond borders, it reminds me of the beautiful tile work found in Morocco. That's why I'm calling it "Moroccan Tiles."


This quilt top is huge coming in at 96" x 96." I was originally thinking that I would have someone long arm quilt it for me, but now I'm on the fence thinking I might want to try and do it myself on my Babylock Symphony. I've had a few friends in my quilt guild offer to let me learn how to long arm on their machines so I might take them up on it and then try and tackle this.


Finishing up the borders was my February goal for the One Monthly Goal project so I'll be linking up here. Having these monthly goals is really helping me to stay on task and get projects done.

  5. what a wonderful quilt you have created, best of luck with the long arm quilt machine, how lucky to have friends that will show you and share their machines with you. I have printed off the instructions for this quilt but think it will be one I do not get round to, must start finishing off the 15 already done well will think about it anyway
