PDF pattern for raw edge applique using free motion embroidery.

This is the first block of a series of 6 pirate themed panels with mice :) This panel measures as 18 by 8" and is the largest block in the quilt. There full quilt measures 26 by 26" and the pirate ship is in the central section. The quilt has a soft coloured background with creams and neutrals around the outside, and then the patchwork colours are selected to give the impression of a circle in the centre. The upper half are sky colours and the lower half are sea/water colours.
The central block features the pirate ship, the Scurvy Cheddar and some of the crew. The Captain Harry Elm is behind the wheel. The remaining 4 corner blocks will feature scenes like drunken sailors or digging for the treasure. The final pattern will involve adding smaller appliques/embroideries around the quilt.

This pattern contains the templates along with plenty of colour photographs through each step.

I don't teach you how to do free motion embroidery in this pattern, other than my own hints and tips, neither do I tell you how to set your machine up for free motion embroidery but I do give you all the stages for you to make your own embroidery.
