Gautier, Mississippi

 Hubby and I are on vacation in Gautier, Mississippi.  
Pronounced "GO-SHAY".
This is the condo where we are staying.  It's very nice.
Two bedroom/Two bath.  Clyde's brother, Tom and his wife, Sherry came to stay a couple nights with us.  We had a good visit.

Clyde wore his quilting shirt today when we visited a couple Quilt Shops in the area.  One is right down the street...Block Therapy.  Wish this one was closer to home!!  We also drove over to Biloxi and visited Janet's Quilting Bee.  Also a nice shop!!

I brought along my little Janome sewing machine and have been working on a quilt I'm making from Clyde's ties.  He used to have to wear one every day so I had lots to choose from.

Here are the parts to the block I'm putting together.

Here is a block laid out.  I think instead of the red center, I'm going to go with the same grey as the half-square triangles in the corners.  A lot of his ties have the red in them and I think they will show up better using the grey.

Any thoughts/suggestions?


  1. Checking to see if I can post a comment

  2. Although I love the red, I think you are right, it will draw from the ties and would work best with the grey. The grey would make the ties stand out.

    1. Thanks Watana. I didn't bring any of the extra fabric with me so I "had" to go buy some. :( LOL
      I found something I think works. I'm in the process of putting the blocks together and will post more pictures when I'm thru.
