UFO Club

So embarrassed when I produced my show and tell for UFO club last night.  I was the only one with a project dating in the 80’s and the colors showed it.  All the other projects were lovely and inspiring.   Oh well, it is finished and I can put it behind me.  I will have it quilted and put it in the stack for the nieces and nephews.  They will probably draw straws for whom will HAVE to take it instead of whom WANTS it.  Oh well, it’s behind me now.  Whew……….

Next up is # 2  Bear Hollow.  pattern by Ann Seely

This quilt pattern was originally  published in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine in 1994 as a series quilt.  I fell in love with it.  I started it and as usual something came up in my life where I had to put it away with the intention of getting back to it someday…..Well, today is that day!!!

I’m finally in a new decade!!!!!  This is an emotional quilt for me.  I was working on this quilt when I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.  When I returned home from the hospital following  my surgery, I did not feel like looking at it much less finish it.  It is now a year later and I am anxious to get this beauty completed.  Unlike last month’s project.  I really like this quilt.  I am drawn to folk art quilts.  I enjoy the combination of piecing and applique.  This quilt also represents a sign that I can put that terrifying time behind me and move forward.  Below is the work in progress.

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
