Each block in the Shiplap Ahoy Quilts Pattern is created simply and it’s possible to make every single block unique. Using methods for Nancy Zieman’s Folded Flying Geese, Shiplap Ahoy features the five shiplap prints to create blocks. Using three or four background strips, each block will have three-dimensional triangles (geese) at various locations. We think you’ll enjoy the results when you stitch the new Shiplap Ahoy Quilts.

The quilt design features yardage from Nancy’s new  fabric line,Farmhouse Florals by Penny Rose Fabrics, a division of Riley Blake Designs. Make the quilt using  Farmhouse Florals or sew the design in your favorite light, medium, and dark fabric values.


Create this quilt in two different sizes and two different color palettes. The multicolor, bed-sized quilt features all five shiplap fabrics as blocks’ backgrounds. The small lap-size quilt features a more monochromatic design focusing on blue, cream, and white.

Fold and Stitch Techniques

The flying geese showcased in each quilt are easily creating by using Nancy Zieman’s Fold and Stitch Technique. Each triangle is three-dimensional unless you opt to stitch down the right and left sides of the shape. Here’s a sneak peek at the folding:


  • Cut assorted squares using the size chart listed in the Shiplap Ahoy pattern.
  • Fold the squares in half, matching wrong sides.
  • Meet the folded corners from cut edge to the center, as shown. Press.

The Blocks

Blocks in this quilt are created using three or four background strips and an assorted number of prepared folded triangle geese. The nature of this style of construction will give every single quilter a truly unique design. Team Nancy Zieman cannot wait to see your quilts!

Create a total of 20 blocks for the lap-size quilt and 30 blocks for the bed-size quilt. You’ll be pleased with how quickly these stitch together.
