The Pirate Quilt

The Pirate Quilt was started a few months ago, the binding was finished on Thursday night and I made the pillowcase on Friday night.  This is for Michael and Peta's Godson.  They can decide whether to give it to him for Christmas or his 3rd birthday in February.



52-1/4" x 77-1/2" (133 cms x 196.5 cms)
I loved this fabric as soon as I saw it and knew it would make a wonderful quilt for a little boy.

How cute is this gift bag that I found at the local $2 shop?  Perfect size for the quilt.


Yesterday was a great day for pin basting and Butterfly Garden is finally ready for quilting - started this morning.



Lots and lots of stitching in the ditch for this quilt.
