I needed a baby quilt for a friend's new baby, and I was really inspired by a picture of a Moroccan tile. And that's how Finlay's Stars was born! I used a red/white/blue colour scheme, which just screams 4th of July to me! My favourite bit about this pattern is the secondary pattern that forms around the white background shapes - almost like a windmill! Finlay's Stars uses very simple construction - it is all constructed with squares and Half-Square triangles. It is a perfect project for someone with a few quilt tops under their belt. Rotary cutting skills are helpful, as is knowledge of strip piecing.

I grew up in India, I've lived in 3 countries, in 6 different cities before putting down roots in Toronto. I've been quilting since I was 16 - my first project was a Double Irish Chain. Inspired by many awesome sewing blogs, I've been sewing garments since 2006. When traveling, I've always taken pictures of patterns, mosaic, tile, rangolis - they serve as quilting inspiration. The Global Nomad Quilt Company came about as a way of sharing this inspiration with you. I blog about the Global Nomad Quilt Company at I blog about garment sewing at
