Siggy Blocks Done



I am so proud! I have done 60 siggys. I have never done anything like this before. I am not too good at finishing anything so this makes me extra proud. Thank you Connie for all of your help. Thank you Mom for encouraging me! I hope I have done them right. They look pretty good all together. I am so excited to see all the others. I have learned so much. There were sometimes when I would come in here to work on these blocks and think to myself, how could anyone have this much fun. I think that is called "content." Would I do it again? Yes I sure would. It was a lot of fun.

Congrats on finishing your siggy blocks. I have to get going on mine. I only have the one made.

Those look fabulous! Now....do you exchange them with others so that you have a lot of different ones? If so, does everyone do the same block?

Great job! Isn't it a wonderful feeling to finally see something all put together that you have been working on?! I still have a few things to finish up, now with this remodel I doubt i will get to them any time soon but I can dream!

Yes I LOVE Corian! The Corian counter that I have had for about 10-12 years needs to be sanded and repolished to bring it back to new looking but that is no big deal. I am giving that to my sister to put in her kitchen when my new one is installed.

Valerie,

Your siggie blocks look great! Congratulations on finishing your blocks early! I am only beginning mine and can't wait to be where you are now -- FINISHED! I'm still trying to figure out how I will "sign" my blocks. Great job!

Well done, Valerie! I can't wait until one of them is mine to keep! I'm nearly half-finished with sewing mine. Got to get busy on that second half.

Oh, I so hope you're in Group 1!!!! (I suppose, I could go look, but I'm busy here LOL.) THANKS so much for showing your blocks. I've been trying to figure out what fabric to use -- I love your fabrics.

And I've really been on the fence about whether to machine embroider my blocks or not. Did it take forever with all the hooping? And did it waste a lot of fabric? I wanted to start mine tomorrow, but I'm still undecided -- must get going LOL!

Your blocks are wonderful!! I haven't done the first one yet!! Of all the things I had going, I added the Orange Pile quilt challenge in! I'm working on the border now so as soon as I finish I HAVE to start on my siggies.
