# 11 – due by 2/23 Will I finish?

I have been sewing, sewing ,sewing.  I really gave myself a challenge.  # 11 is a wonderful Christmas folkart wallhanging that is pieced and hand applique.  I have completed 9 of 12 blocks.  Will layout block number 10 tonight.  Not sure what I did to my back, but somehow my posture while I am sewing has not been very good and result is I am walking bent in half.  Tylenol is helping.  At least I am able to stand upright today. For that I am very thankful.  I try to set a goal to reach each day and the back thingy slowed me down a bit. Due to an impending nasty weather forecast, my family has cancelled their trip.  I’m sorry for that but grateful that I will be free to try and get # 11 finished on time.  I usually applique using the needle turn technique.  This time I have used the starch and freezer paper technique.  I believe it is faster and am please with the results.  But then, these are large pieces, if they were small intricate pieces I believe I would need more practice with this technique to get the quality of work I am used to producing with my needle turn. And as always, I have assistance whether desired or not.  This is Tink, short for Tinkerbell.


These are what I have completed.

About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
