Tula Pink Anchors Aweigh "Zuma" quilt

Tula Pink's Anchors Aweigh quilt pattern has been around for a little while now and when she recoloured it using the new Zuma fabrics I decided to make it!
I used the Aquamarine colourway along with a deep navy blue for the background.
There are about 660 little 2 inch squares in this pattern but it is broken down into sections so it wasnt too hard to keep track.
I think the secret to doing so many small squares like this is to sew in rows, press alternate rows left or right and then nest seams as most of mine turned out ok by doing this.
It was quite hard to cut into these gorgeous fabrics as the squares are so small but the effect is amazing.
The finished flimsy - my top and bottom borders are narrower so this is about 90x80".
This was longarm quilted at my LQS - Rainbow Patchwork and I used my favourite blue backing which goes perfectly with all Tula fabrics.
So many lovely details in these fabrics.
 The quilt was bound in an older Tula print - Making Waves in navy. 
We went up to my parents place near the beach to take some photos and managed to get a few before my quilt holders went fishing instead...
This was on my Q1 FAL 2019 list so linking up with the 2019 FAL team.


  1. This is wonderful! Yay for all those tiny pieces - I'm sure it looks stunning in person!
