Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use a sewing machine

Pattern Description:

Raise the anchors and set sail for adventure with your Anchors Away Quilt. Quilt as you go techniques make this nautical quilt fast and simple. Anchors Away baby quilt is a wholecloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique anchors are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 42x35 inches (106cmx89cm)


  • 1 yard (.91m) vintage look fabric for front of quilt (I used Michael Miller fabrics Swim Free)
  • 1 yard (.91m) solid orange cotton or brushed cotton fabric for the back
  • 1 piece 42x 35 inches (106cmx89cm) batting ( I used Warm and Natural cotton batting) for the inside layer
  • 1/3 yard (31cm) dark blue flannel for the top anchor appliques
  • 1/3 yard (31cm) orange flannel for the background anchor appliques

You Will Also Need:

  • Darning foot or free motion foot accessory for your sewing machine (optional)
