Anne Underhill recently sent us a photo of her quilt to post in the Quilt Gallery, but it was so cute I just had to share it here on the blog too!
Anne used blocks from Angie Padilla’s Ship Ahoy! collection to make this adorable quilt for her new grandson.What a perfect use for these appliqué blocks!
“This was my first attempt at an EQ7 quilt. Custom Set quilt layout made it easy to swap the appliqué blocks around and then add ‘fillers’ until I had a sensible and pleasing layout. I really enjoyed the process and learned my way around the software at the same time.”
“My grandson lives by the sea so I was delighted to find Angie’s wonderful ‘Ship Ahoy!’ designs which I could use within my EQ7 software. The appliqué is fused raw edge and machined using blanket stitch. I’m not good at quilting, most was done with the walking foot; the small motifs in the non-appliqué blocks were done on my embroidery machine as was some of the lettering.
My grandson lives in Melbourne Australia, I am in the UK. I delivered the quilt personally last month!”
Thanks for sharing your quilt with us, Anne!
