My busy week...
Thank you...

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum...

Having just watched The Pirates Of The Carribean, I have to say Johnny Depp is gorgeous! I definitely prefer his pirate make up to his Willy Wonka make up! Seeing pirates made me think I should do a 'show and tell' of my Pirate Treasure quilt. As you can see I also had alot of fun making a cushion and decorating a cardboard treasure chest, first I painted the box and had alot of fun stencilling anchors and ropes on the inside, then I fused the fabric pirates, trees and treasure chest onto the outside, exactly the same way as you would onto fabric but no stitching! I then gave the whole chest a coat of varnish to seal it and I have to say the end result is fun. My boys love it and I am sure yours will too. Penny at The Patchwork Angel has the patterns in stock, she is also offering starter bundles of fabric which is a great way to get your quilt started.
