Captain Jack Pirate Ship Quilt (and a giveaway)

Ahoy landlubbers! Happy halfway to Friday day. :)

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...

I mean...

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:

I bagged up some of the scraps from three different quilts that I made to give away because I am starting to be buried alive in scraps. I kept just a few to use in scrappy projects but I have this 0.8 lb bag of Blackbeard's Pirates scraps (some are larger pieces) to give away.

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!
**LuAnn is the winner of the scraps! Congratulations, LuAnn and thanks for entering!

So cute! Pirates are the best!

Great little quilt, I love it! Fabric scraps are always welcome here, lots of children's and baby quilts to be made.

Super cute! What's funny is being a different kind of a nerd my mind thought the quilt was named after the Doctor Who character of Captain Jack Harkness :)

Love your pirate quilt . It is very cute x

Got some scraps of this fabric from a local quilt shop from their scrap bin and fell in love. Have a little boy coming soon and would love to have these to help put together a scrappy quilt for him. :) BIG fan of Pirates of the Caribbean and hope to get my little boy started right in a love for pirates. :) Maybe I'll have to make him a big one like the one you made when he gets a bit older.

Adorable quilt! No wonder it was a hit at Market and with your son. Who can resist Captain Black Sparrow?

I have a darling little 5 year old niece who loves sharks! I think she needs a purse with sharks and maybe some flowers, too.
