Sisterly Love

My sister has a friend who keeps bees.  Needless to say she is bee crazy.  Whenever, we are out shopping and happen to come across anything bee related we have to get it for future gift giving.

I belong to a group on Facebook, Quilt A Long with Pat Sloan.  Pat took up the challenge from Kimberly  Jolly  of the fat quarter shop to design something to go with their Zipper Pouch pattern using moda’s mini charm pack.  She designed a darling pouch using a bee applique.  Well, that certainly falls in the realm of gifts to give for my sister’s friend.  so guess who got recruited to make the pouch.  Yep, me.

To be honest I did practice on two others before tackling the bee pouch.  The other two were gifted to friends at work.  My sister gets these two to give to her friend.  You have to really love your sister to put aside your current project and shop for supplies and make the bee pouch.  Luckily I do!   So the photos below are the result of the bee mania surrounding my sister.

The first bag I made I placed the bee on the back side framed in black, no buttons.


The second bag, I placed the bee on the front side but added the buttons as Pat Sloan had on her bag.



Did you notice my helper in the background?  I have to admit I am not totally up to speed with my Bernina and I had to fall back into my comfort zone and use my Pfaff to sew on the buttons.  I know how to do that on the Pfaff with ease.

Now, back to my current project, A Boy and A Girl Block 2.

Have a blessed day and happy stitches.




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
