This is the Chinese Pirate Junk of 1807. The pattern is Ladies of the Sea by Sue Garman and this marks my 13th ship completed out of 16.
I would have finished it a few days ago, but after I completed all of the applique I decided I didn't like one of the fabrics and decided to replace it. Even though it took a bit longer, I think it was a good call.
I usually work on the ships in pairs which means I've almost finished another one as well. Hopefully I'll be back with it in another week or so. This quilt is a labor of love for my husband and so far I think I've been working on it for about 4 years. He's started to joke about whether he'll live to see it completed. I still have the remaining ships and 4 full borders, so I'm not sure how to answer him!
By the way, I'm having some trouble getting comments lately. So if I haven't responded, please know that's the reason why!
