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!

Anne says:

“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.”

Anne’s design in EQ7:

“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!
