Custom Quilted Shiplap Ahoy Quilts Pattern

In early October 2017, I had the honor of quilting Shiplap Ahoy Quilts for Nancy Zieman. I work as the free-lance blog and social media person for Nancy Zieman Productions, LLC. (NZP) As a fantastic bonus, the team selected me to custom quilt new patterns NZP would be releasing which feature the Farmhouse Florals collection for Penny Rose Fabrics, a division of Riley Blake Designs.

NZP is releasing three patterns for this fabric collection. The first one, featured today, is Shiplap Ahoy. Nancy designed, edited, and tweaked this pattern early last year. It is truly amazing how far in advance the entire quilting community works.

The quilt is offered in two different color palettes. Both full-size quilt photos are on the NZP blog today. Taking two reasonably identical quilts and custom quilt them differently was tricky.

All the quilting shown here is created with longarm quilting rulers and free-motion quilting designs. I work on a HandiQuilter Avante 18 and generally use Glide Thread in the needle and Superior Pre-wound Bobs in the bobbin. Read more about my set-up and style at ReannaLilyQuilts.com.

Blue and White Quilt

Each block in the quilt features three or four rows with an assorted number of three-dimensional triangles. I opted to quilt straight lines around the triangle shape to highlight the angles. I also quilted a Fluer De Lis in the triangles themselves.

Stretched-out wishbone shapes are quilted into the sashing.

The back of each of the quilts is a 108″ wide mottled white by Riley Blake Fabrics. You can really see the quilting on the backs.

Multi-Color Quilt

The multi-color version of this quilt has each of the five shiplap print colors from the Farmhouse Florals collection used as backgrounds for the blocks.

I switched up the quilting design in this multi-color quilt to stitch wishbones in the block.

The Bone color glide 40wt thread shows up differently on each background color.

Again, the white backing fabric shows off all the quilting designs. Notice, I outlined the triangles, and they do not have a motif added within the shape.
