Friends of Baltimore, Stars Upon Stars

Happy Fall. I saw my first brilliant yellow Maple tree yesterday. Unfortunately, I was driving and not able to stop and take a photo. But it was beautiful. The weather has turned and the days are sunny and awesome. Love this weather. Spent yesterday in Springfield with a friend and had a great day.

I have decided I need a table for my sewing machine. I’m getting tired of putting my machine away and bringing it back out in between applique handwork and machine piecing. I looked at actual sewing machine tables but have decided what I really need is what is termed as a writing desk. Who knew there were so many to choose from. I think I got cross eyed with all the options. I have narrowed it down to this one. Namely because it has a drawer to keep sewing machine accessories handily available, and the legs are similar to my desk. It measures 40 x 20 and will fit perfectly in the space I have available. So now to order it.

Friends of Baltimore –

I have completed two of the corner blocks for the borders. Only two corner blocks left. I’m hoping to have them finished by the end of October. Woo hoo.

Stars Upon Stars

Finished the first installment just in time to received the second installment. Plus I have been supplementing the civil war fabrics from pieces I have found at the local quilt shops just to make it my own.

Each star block is made up of 9 fabrics. It’s always interesting to see how the fabric choices and the order I put them when actually sewn together. Makes me wonder, what if I had put fabric 6 where 3 is, what would it look like. But boy oh boy those ‘Y” seams. By the end of this quilt I should be a master at “Y” seams.

I had a visitor and I discovered he likes cantaloupe. For such a little guy he sure puts it away.

Now if only I could teach Buddy, my sister’s cat and Buttercup, to operate the lawn tractor.

Hope everyone has a great day.

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
