I realized the other day that I never did blog about a few of the quilts I made for Quilt Market last October. I think I posted them on Instagram from there, but that was it. Today, I wanted to post about my Captain Jack Quilt, and how it came to be and give away the leftovers of the fabric that I made it with.
It all started when Jina from Riley Blake asked me if I had any designs that might work for a couple of the fabric lines they were taking to market. I didn't have any on hand but started doodling with the Blackbeard's Pirates line in mind and came up with this pirate ship quilt.
I called it Captain Jack, because well.. you know...
Oops, I was blogging about a quilt wasn't I. haha
Blackbeard's Pirates is such a cute fabric line. My son claimed this one as his own before I had even finished it!

I loved the skull and crossbone print and really wanted a skull in the sail. It is a lap quilt and goes together really quickly. I think I pieced it in about a day or day and a half. I think there's a dog bone (the treat kind for a dog--not an actual dog's bone) on the bark in this pic at the bottom there.. kind of fits the pirate theme. ha!
It was a hit at market, and a couple of shops kitted it. The pattern is available in my Craftsy shop, or maybe even at the random local quilt shop, which I still can't believe! So fun!
This was the cover shot I used for the pattern:
All you have to do is leave me a comment and let me know you're interested. I'll pick a winner next Wednesday.
Thanks for stopping by!
