Resting in Key West

The six shirts quilt that I made in June of this year is indeed resting in KW. In fact it is lounging over a settee in the Cabana, so in fact it has come home.

The quilt was made from six shirts, belonging to No 1 son, so he now has them back in a different form.

It was a good wheeze bringing the quilt in our suitcase as now I have a big space to fill for the return journey, so plenty of room for fabric. So far I have bought some large cones of Aurifil cotton, and Mr M has accuired a rather fetching pair of Armani slacks, that did not fit No 1 son, so still plenty of room yet to fill.

Well pleased with my Aurifil cones, I could only find them in White in England, not a colour I use much of, other than for my little 1/2 " hexes.

How do you make 2 very large cones look good.On top of a glass table was the best I could do.

I have done very little sewing, other than my 1/2"hexies with the oh! so lovely Liberty lawn fabric, it is so lovely to sew with. Notice in the photo my tiny scissors for using on the plane.

Off to the island quilt shop this afternoon, will let you know how I get on...

I am finding this rather difficult to blog on the IPad , can't improve the pictures etc.. So this may not look like normal.



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