Moorish star quilt for Emma

A long while ago I mentioned that I was making a quilt for a little baby girl named Emma.
Well the other week I finally finished it!
I have to confess that I am not a very good quilter, I get confused when it comes to cutting funny angles and adding a seam allowance. This is probably because I am self taught, not to mention quite impatient!
So I cheated a little in the creation of this quilt, instead of cutting lots of pieces to create the "star" panels, I sewed those little triangles right on top of that square!

I feel as though I saved myself a lot of brain ache and time, however an experienced quilter may not feel the same.

Here is the finished product:

I will be sharing this quilt pattern for free very soon. Just keep your eyes peeled for Bee&Lotus Free and Easy Quilt Love!
