"Ahoy there Sailors"

“Ahoy there Sailors”

The whole idea for this cushion arose from the jewel patterned fabric in the four corners. My first thoughts were ‘Jewels = Pirates’. So I set about drawing a sketch of Pirates on a beach looking for the famous ‘X’ and added their ship in the background. Once happy with my design, I hand appliquéd all the small pieces of cotton to the background. Coordinated the patchwork, coloured strips to the jewel fabric, and ditch quilted. One finished Pirate cushion!
