Key West Vibes

Key West Vibes

I made this quilt for Floridian Flavors , a SAQA regional exhibit in Florida.

The exhibition can be seen at the Leepa Rattner museum of Art , Tarpon Springs, Florida
and at Martin Arts Courthouse Cultural Center, Stuart , Florida from  01/11/2022 to 02/26/2022

Most of the fabrics were bought in Florida. I found some excellent ones at  the seamshoppe during this trip.

We spent some time in Key West long ago and in December 2019 we decided to stay there again for a couple of days. We went for long walks and I took some pictures of the chickens and the lush vegetation. This trip gave me tons of inspiration for my quilt.

The chickens in the streets!

The amazing sunsets

                                                     The buzz of Duval street,

                                                     The laid-back atmosphere

                                                     You gotta love Key West
