Now, I know it isn't the caribbean, but it is a whole lot closer. AND... did you know that they filmed a portion of Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End at the salt flats? Hey. If it is good enough for Johnny (swoon, drool, sigh) it is good enough for us.
I actually grew up sewing clothing and it was a bit of a trick switching to a 1/4 " seam for quilting. It is even weirder to switch back! 1/2" is HUGE! I will post a picture of my pirate coat which is the only one that is finished so far. Just have to sew on 28 buttons.
In the quilting world...
I did actually finish a new pattern! The quilt is currently at the quilters and will be returned in 2 days. I am excited to see it and to post some pictures about it. It is a layer cake friendly version of my sassy squares pattern. I am hoping to get started on a halloween quilt for my family and we will see if I can make a pattern out of it, too.
Happy quilting (or costume making as the case may be)!!
