All that remains (ha ha ha ha) on the front is the free-motion quilting of waves in the 3" black border. I don't I have the right color thread so I need to shop for that tomorrow. Maybe a dark shiny blue or greenish blue color. But not black. And of course he needs his one eye sewn on. Arrrrr.
Aye matey, now you can see the pearl as it glows and glistens in the dead claw. A real treasure to be sure.
This is the backside of the quilt with the Articles of the Crew on it. You can see some of the fireworks in grays, blacks and silvers. I am hoping to embroider the song Yo Ho on the narrow border in the back. And perhaps those skulls as well. Perhaps I'll begin this part tonight until I can get the thread I need for the waves.
Close ups of the "fireworks".
Now that you have seen the better photos, what color threads would you use for the waves?
