Autumn Joy Top Completed

I am speechless.  Autumn Joy is finished.  I so enjoyed this project.  It was challenging and tested my patience more than once.    Here I am showing it off just 1.5 hours after sewing on the final border at UFO club. Now that is right at the wire.  Brought it home and it’s back on the design wall.    I am still enjoying just looking at it hanging there.  I feel a real sense of accomplishment with this quilt.  It will hang until I get the backing put together to take to Vickie so she can add her miracle quilting and add a new layer to its beauty.

Autumn Joy represents so many things I am grateful for.  I am blessed to be able to spend my free time sewing and quilting, playing with my kittahs and my puppy dogs.  I am just blessed period.  My sister is coming for Thanksgiving and I am very thankful to be able to spend this time with her.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!


pssst…… being the nerd that I am, I have already put together a list of projects that just need a few finishing touches to be completed during December.  And I almost forgot to put “clean my sewing room” on the list.  I wonder what that means since it wasn’t first on my list?  Oh well…..







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
