MAORI MOKO 14″or 15″ Interlocking



New Zealand has been on my mind.  The earthquake in Christchurch and other natural calamities “downunder” helped me focus on patterns I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

Maori Mokos are the face paintings and tatoos so typical when we think of the wonderful Maori people.  To draw this pattern I studied pictures of their faces and incorporated the designs into this great pattern.  It would look great stitched on a variety of quilts, but the ones I think of are those geometrics, or a “man” quilt.

This pattern is 15″ x 12.’

SPECIAL: We printed this popular pattern in a 14″ size by special request. So, we made a few extras.  If you’d like that size select it in the “options” tab.  The smaller version is 120 inches long.

You’ll also enjoy the other Maori patterns.  Look for them bundled into a Maori Set for 20% off.

    great pattern. I used this on a “big truck” kids quilt and it made it look like tire tracks and gave it movement. I also used it on a “wizard” quilt and it looked like “casting spells”. Both quilts was made by the same client and she was very happy with both of them. Love this pattern.
