MY REVIEW

I had the pleasure of using Pirates by Emily Taylor to make my latest quilt. Two of my favorite quilts so far have been made with Riley Blake Fabrics, and I was so excited for the Pirates line! Nothing is quite as boyish as pirates…

pirates by emily taylor for riley blake

And look at these great fabrics! This is only 5 of the 6 in the black/red color scheme and there are also reddish and blue/green color schemes that are both just as fabulous. I tend to gravitate towards blues and greens and wanted to try something different this time, and I loved the color variations in this line.

Here are all the different fabrics in the line – it’s impossible to choose a favorite!

riley blake pirates quilt

I did a quilt I like to call Random Rectangles (the same pattern I used for Gus’s quilt with Riley Blake All Star 2 but smaller) – I’m pleased with how it turned out but I do wish I had used some complementary solids to really set off the prints in the actual Pirates line. That was a good lesson to learn, and I’ll never make that mistake again!

I decided to do 8 blocks with just a big section of the main print fabric, and I love how that turned out. That was my favorite print, the one in the top center with the pirate ship and treasure map and skull and crossbones. I also love love the Phrases print and the Dots. I love them all!

I did a narrow white border and then a wider black border on the very outside and I’m going to quilt waves all around the edges. I’ll take more pictures and I think it will look much better after it’s all quilted.

riley blake pirates quilt sample

I found this sample quilt using the Pirates fabrics (I don’t remember where now, I’m sorry! If it’s yours leave a comment and I’ll link to you!). I love how she used that big square in the center. So cute!

This display is from Quilt Market, which I only found out about after it was over. Agh!

The other set of prints up for giveaway is Alphabet Soup. This line is yet another reason for me to want to have a girl in our family someday!

I love the bright colors and all the girly prints!

I think my favorite line is Alphabet Soup, either boy or girl! I love the star argyle and the circle patterns. Both of my kids are really into animals right now, so that would be perfect!

Riley Blake has so many cute collections. I love alphabet soup line, either boy or girl, both are adorable. We are expecting in December (#4) and don’t know what we are having so I could easily see either one turned into an adorable quilt once the baby arrives.

35 Nicole K July 26, 2011 at 8:30 am

LOVE the pirates! Would look great in my boys’ room.

36 Melinda Wilson July 26, 2011 at 10:02 am

Both of these lines are so cute but I can’t wait for the Sophie to come out. It will definitely be my favorite since I love to use My Mind’s Eye for scrapbooking!

Favorites are so hard to narrow just to one, but I’m a huge fan of the novelty prints. I have already been scoping out that Alphabet Soup. It’s just too cute for words.
