April UFO 1987ish Sampler top finished

Wow the top is completed.  4 months 4 quilts so far.  I’m keeping pace.  May will be questionable but I enjoy a challenge.  I have a couple a projects going, plus yard work, veggie garden.  I will persevere.

Again, all I can say is “what was I thinking” color wise with this sampler.  No matter, the top is done.  Big check mark.  Feeling smug today. I’m still on vacation for today and tomorrow.   Cleaned my sewing room, boy I can make a mess while focused on a project.  Thread everywhere, snippets of fabric all over, rulers and tools right where I left them.  I hate doing that.  I like neat and orderly in my sewing room.  But all is put back in place now and everything set up for my next class of paper piecing.  Really liking this technique.  It speaks to my geekyness.

Also packed up my dream sewing machine for its annual checkup.  Wow has it been a year.  Time flies.  It seems as if I just bought it.  I will have to leave it there for a week.  At first,  I experienced a bit of anxiety over not having my machine which is my BFF now.  But I calmed myself down remembering I still have my trusty Pfaff as backup.

Here are the photos for the 1987ish Sampler top finished.

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
