Six Shirts Quilt.

 Things are progressing with the Six Shirts Quilt and I think it is looking really good, and I am well pleased with the progress so far.

It is still residing on the spare room bed, as it's a little too big for the design wall. All the blocks are now sewn together on point, ( there is a free app on iPhone called QuiltRef  that tells you the sizes of triangles) and I am now working on the borders.There were a lot of scraps left so I'm now in the process of making piano keys as the second border. The intention is to add three borders.

At the Bee this week, I finished the stitchery on block seven. Now to write the instructions and this is the bit I hate. I could draw all day and stitch all day but the instructions come hard to me. One of the girls brought her first two blocks in to show me. It was lovely to see, and her colour combination was lovely.

Jenny was knitting her hats for smoothy bottles. We knit them each year for Suffolk age UK and last year we knitted over 200. We are a little slow off the mark this year and as Jenny had put me to shame I set too and made these last night. I tend only to knit in 4ply so will have to get some more DK wool.

Back to making my borders now as the sun has gone in so no more gardening today.

keep safe and keep stitching...Doti...
