Riley Blake Designs Pirate Tales Blog Tour

Riley Blake Designs "Pirate Tales" fabric by Echo Park Paper Company is incredible! Not only are there pirates and other pirate things, there are even sharks...lots of sharks. They've surrounded the ship in my "Pirates Treasure Hunt" quilt that was made especially for this blog tour! 

56" x 56"

FYI - Half square triangles (HSTs) make awesome sharks teeth in a quilt.

Look how fun these prints are!

Seriously, look at all these cool (but scary) pirates, parrots, treasures, and hooks. Look, an alligator, too!

There are so many pirate ships in the fabric! I'm not sure which one is my favorite ship because they are all amazing.

Ships and pirate skulls...totally pirate fabric to love! Are you feeling like saying "Aar" or "Shiver me timbers", yet?

"Pirates Treasure Hunt" has some fun applique designs that I created to fit right in the middle of all those shark teeth.

The treasure map..."X" marks the spot

And, unfortunately for the parrot, a shark that's looking for his next meal

Quilting was done by Ginger from Sew Sassy LongarmShe always does an amazing job!

What's my favorite go-to iron-on adhesive? ThermOWeb's HeatnBond Lite, of course! I love using EZ Print Lite Sheets by tracing! Just print in your inkjet printer and your designs are ready.

I'm so glad you stopped by...thank you!


  1. My son would have loved that quilt when he was little. He was so into pirates. He drew a wonderful picture that I framed and still have of pirates on a ship. He was only about 6-8 years old (dang forgot to date it). He also had that pirate Lego ship that he bought and dad helped him to put together. He wore a bandanna on his head and had his wooden sword. No eye patch though, lol!

  2. What an adorable quilt and pattern. Those fabrics really are so cute!

  3. That is super cute. I'll bet you had a quick taker for that quilt. Love your choice of binding too.

  4. such a cute quilt Carol, always love your ability to create such fun projects.

  5. This is just the cutest. First time in my life I haven't had to sew for boys and now this comes out! LOL!!!

  6. Great quilt! I had a pirate party for my kids when they were little. I would have loved to have had this pattern then. I still want to make one for my grandnephew. Thank you for the pattern.

  7. What a fabulous little boy quilt! Too bad my boy is now 14 and doesn't let me make anything cute for him.

  8. It's another adorable project for any pirate lover. Even just making the center panel for a pillow or hanging for someone older would be great!

  9. This is such an amazing quilt, complete with the danger of a shark and a ship parrot! I love it and would not mind going on an adventure in that ship.
