Finishing Friday is here Again !!!

I know its actually thursday !!! its good to be a day ahead of yourself never know when it will come in handy. This Pirate quilt has been sitting on my design wall since just before Christmas. The focus fabric is the skull fabric. The skull night sky is lit up by two vibrant red and blue star bursts. Have to say it was a challenge for me to work with so much black but tried to balance that with plenty vibrant reds and blues to keep the bright fun factor hope that comes through. I used improvised piecing to make the star bursts, moon and pirate boat. The bandanna fabric for quite sometime now and finally it has found a home, pretty pleased about that. There is a matching boat made with the left over fabric scraps. The quilt is backed in a blue luxurious fleece I have christened these type of quilts Quankies because they are Quilt like on the front and fleece blanket on the back ..... a combination of a quilt and blankie = Quankie. Also very useful when feeling cranky !! cheesy I know but it rhymes. Do you think this quilt would fit the bill for a pirate loving swashbuckler or too scary and dark ?
