Productive Weekend

Finished the basket block. Of course I had a little help.  Yeah!  One down many to go.


This is the look I first got when she noticed the new camera.  She has always been such a ham but not so sure now is she?


My awesome hibiscus.


The finished block –


And I also pieced the block for my Saturday Sampler group.


As well as the 11th installment on the Storytellers BOM.  I’ll pick up installment 12 on July 2 when I go to Saturday Sampler.  Then that BOM will be finished and ready to head to the quilter.  No more new UFO’s in this house!  LOL!!!

I’m ready to start the next basket block.  My plan is to piece and sew the basket together and start the prepping for the applique.  That would be a nice goal if I could get one basket completed a week.

A friend dropped off the registration forms for the county fair.  I think I will enter three of my quilts from last year.  Sorry, the Princess quilt won’t be one of them.  The Princess has it.

I just love spending time in my sewing room.  It is truly my happy place.  I always have company when I sew.  One of the kitties is always perched on some surface or mostly right on what I’m trying to sew or iron.  Anyone else face those challenges?

Happy sewing everyone!






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
