April’s UFO down to one block ****

Just finished the paper pieced 16″ pineapple block.  I spent more time ripping I think than sewing.  Very happy it is finally finished.  One block to go.  I have decided to substitute the carpenter’s wheel instead of the Ice Crystals block.  Been busy this month made a quilt for a friend who is grieving and Tink added her special touches as well.  She loves when the binding goes on.  That’s when she gets to cuddle.


I took a Judy Niemeyer class “Crackers”.  busy paper piecing.  Love it.  Having fun. Challenged myself to work with bright fabrics since I usually work with traditional ones.


Will post a a finished shot of the sampler once it’s done.  Have to show it off on Monday at UFO club.

I was supposed to be in Paducah, KY  today at the International Quilt show.  Sad story is coming home from doctor’s appointment I had a blow out on the interstate and it damaged my bumper to the tune of $800 in repairs plus the cost of a new tire.  .  So there went my vacation.  So bummed, I felt horrible yesterday after getting the repair news, so busied myself with yard work in the hopes  I wouldn’t have to think about it.  Today marginally bummed .  But I did get quite a bit of sewing accomplished today.  That Pineapple block was very challenging.

Until next time.



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
