Moorish Pyramids Pattern Release + Giveaway

I am so excited to announce that I have a new pattern – Moorish Pyramids available via my Craftsy store. It will be free for a limited time during the month of July.


Castle of the Moors in Sintra, Lisbon, is one of the most inspiring architectural buildings, I have ever seen. This quilt was inspired by the pyramid shapes and how the shadows are cast on the entrance way.


Originally, this is one of my quilt design a day designs. Art Gallery Fabrics provided me the opportunity to make this using the new line Imprint by Katarina Roccella. Moorish_Pyramids

The quilt measures 60 x 60″ finished. There are a lot of options to make this quilt your own by using different color palettes, color placement and your own quilt design. This finished quilt used straight line quilting with some angled lines, highlighting the pyramid shapes using Aurifil 50wt.


The quilt pattern can easily be modified to make a smaller or larger quilt by reducing the overall block size.

You can see other projects using Imprint, including this one, in the Look book that came out today.

    11. This is a beautiful quilt. Teal and gray are my go to colors right now but I do find myself drooling over jewel tone too.

  6. Rochelle

    18. I really enjoy seeing all your designs and would make this quilt in orange yellow and pink with a touch of something else for pizzazz!

    25. I think this would make a great masculine quilt so I would use earth tones to make it look outdoorsy.

    30. Love your quilt – your color choices make me think of warm sun and late afternoon shadows. At the moment I am really loving the combo of aqua, raspberry, Navy, lime and orange. Sounds gross right but they look great together
