I didnt make this quilt, my daughter made it for me for Christmas.
She knows I have a "thing" for pirates and skulls and basically Johnny Depp, (YUMMY!) and all three Pirates movies.
I also have what is known in the family as "blankie"

AT this point if I'm boring you just skip to the pictures ok?

Anyway, "blankie" is a slightly battered, ok fairly battered and patched, well loved quilt that I made by sewing old flannelette sheets onto a doona. I made it years ago when we lived in the country where we froze our butts off every winter, and I had no money to go out and buy new or thick doonas.
Both my children and all my nephews used to snuggle up under "blankie" on cold days.
"Blankie" is probably coming to the end of his life of usefulness, sadly.

So imagine my extreme joy at my daughters thoughtfulness at holing herself up for three weeks in her house to make me a new Pirate Blankie.

(I need to help her back it, but just ignore that part for now. I forgot to mention this is the first quilt she has ever made, so I'm pretty impressed with that too. I gave her my old sewing machine but she said its a monster to use)
And here it is  Grin

Love it! I really like the patches your daughter appliqued on, and the writing. It's fantastic and very imaginative!  Cheesy
