Moonstones Quilt and Free PDF Pattern!!!

 I am so very excited to share my newest finish, the Moonstones Quilt, along with the free Moonstones Quilt PDF Pattern  to go with it!!!!  I have had this fun Curved Star Design in my head for a long while and am thrilled to see it come to life.   I just love piecing curves, and this is a great quilt to start learning them if curves are brand new to you!!! It's perfect for beginners and experts alike :)

The Moonstones Quilt is made with Modified Drunkards Path Units and No Waste Flying Geese.   I love using my Modified Drunkards Path Templates to make cutting the curves a breeze!!   (yup, I made this pattern with the same size MDP Units as Nordic Nights so your templates will work for both!!)   And if you are new to curved piecing, or just need a refresher course, there is a step by step tutorial right here on cutting and sewing the curved units :)   So great!!!    Oh, and there is also a No Waste Flying Geese Step by Step tutorial as well :)  

This Moonstones Quilt features the new Whimsical Romance  fabrics by Keera Job for Riley Blake Designs .   And they are the reason this quilt finally went from picture in my mind to quilt.  When I saw them, I knew they would be just perfect for this Moonstones Quilt and assigning myself a deadline date to post this quilt is what finally made it happen.  (please tell me I am not the only one that gets quilts done just in time for the deadlines)   I made the lap size quilt that uses 15 Fat Quarters, yup, this quilt is totally Fat Quarter Friendly!!   I just love these colors and prints, so pretty!!  

 I made the lap size quilt that uses 15 Fat Quarters, so I used 15 colored prints and am saving the 3 low volume prints for a future low volume project :)    I just love these colors and prints, so pretty!!   And all of the size options are Fat Quarter Friendly, making this a great project to grab a bundle and get cutting and piecing!! 

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on my Wavy Peel design.   This is a perfect design for a quilt that is mostly a grid of squares so it makes it easy to stitch.  And I just love how much this design adds to the block, it really makes the centers just pop!!!  And of course, I used my favorite  402 So Fine  thread that blended perfectly into the background and on all the prints, yup, its my all time favorite color ;)  

And doesn't it just create the most amazing texture!!!  Love it!!!

Then all I needed was a quick binding and Moonstones was done!!   And I just love it!!  Won't this make the prettiest wedding quilt :)      And now, it's your turn to make your own Moonstones Quilt!!!   Download the free Moonstones PDF Pattern,  grab your templates  and Fat Quarters and get cutting :)

And like I was saying, there are multiple size options in the PDF.   I made the Lap Size, but you can also make a Baby Size, Twin Size, Picnic Size, and a Queen/King Size.  All 5 size options are in the Moonstones Quilt PDF Pattern.   Here is the details of what you will need and the finished sizes for each of the 5 quilt options.  

I hope you enjoy this free Moonstones Quilt PDF Pattern and that you make your own quilts!!!  And if you do, I would love to see them ;)   You can email me a picture at or add it to social media with the hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and #moonstonesquilt ;)  I can't wait to see your Moonstones Quilts!!!

**  Oh, and side note . . . make sure when you print your PDF that it is Actual Size and not Shrunk to Fit, that way your template prints at the right size.   There is a 1" box on the template page to double check it is printed correctly ;)

Thanks so much for popping in and sharing this finish with me.  If you have any questions at all on making your own, don't hesitate to email me at  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!
