I’ve finished the Pirate King quilt.
I stayed up to 10pm on Friday sewing and then finished the quilting on Saturday afternoon about 2pm (just before my friends arrived), cut the threads while we were watching a movie in the afternoon and then presented the present later that evening. A close shave but I made it ;-).
Now the ‘special blanket’ is on its way home with its new family.
I’m really pleased with how the finished product looked – nearly as happy as AK looks with in this photo.
It was very cute with its new family playing counting games on it last night, jumping from block to block as they counted together. Hopefully this means it’ll be a successful present – loved and played and washed for years to come.
Now it feels strange to not have a pile of quilts-in-progress on the bed in the spare room. Ah well, I’ll soon fix that.
Happy adventrues on the high seas to you all. Arrrrr.
