AGF Quilt Block Tour of Makers ~ A Love Story Moroccan Pillow!

AGF Quilt Block Tour Moroccan Pillow in Love Story

Love Story Moroccan Pillow

Several weeks ago I was invited to join the Art Gallery Fabrics Quilt Block Collection Tour hosted by my friend, Sharon McConnell of Color Girl Quilts!

AGF Quilt Block Collection Blog Tour

I was asked to choose one block from AGF's collection of quilt block YouTube video tutorials to make and share as a finished project today. I chose one of my favorites from the bunch, the Moroccan quilt block!

The Moroccan block is perfect for fussy cutting from a favorite fabric and instructions include two fun techniques -- the a make eight at a time half square triangles and flying geese using the corner triangle method. I chose to make my Moroccan block using several pretty prints from my brand new Love Story collection!

For my Moroccan block I began by fussy cutting a floral cluster from Love Story Soulmate Blooms to be my center fabric and framed that print in Compassion Ruby. Next I made my HSTs and flying geese units using Love Story prints -- Reflection of Love Light,  Soulmate Blooms in teal and Flower Stamp Charm. I LOVE this pretty combination of reds, peach, aqua & teal!

Once my block was complete I added a 3" border in Daring Tribal Sunset to turn my Morrocan block into a pillow!

I basted my pillow top to a layer of Hobbs cotton batting and added lots of quilting using an Aurifil 40wt in Light Beige.

I'm so happy with how my Love Story Moroccan pillow turned out!
