Hello Everyone!! I am alive and quilting :)
We are nearing the end of our Sew Need a Break meetings this year and I wanted to make a fun project to say that I am thankful to all of the wonderful girls that are apart of our group and a chance to teach quilting to them. This is the PERECT size project to practice quilting or for some to try out quilting for the first time. Also, I hope that it is a project people can not only make for themselves but for gifts as well. It is after all to me a time for giving Thanks. So I want to share this pattern with anyone else that would like to do the same to say thank you.!. I have prepared it in pattern form and it is available at the links below to download for personal use.
I had such a blast coming up with the concept and I could hardly contain myself to wait to see the finish result. It took a couple of days though because it was amidst all these other things I had to get finish in a time sensitive way. But I did manage to get two finished!! Finally!! and the pattern written as well.
So to show you how easy this is : I have a step-by-step shown below. First simply appliqué pie, then add a little bit of embroidery, quilt, and bind. Piece of Pie.
And just so you know that in my case this is meant for a semi-homemade pie. Okay... I don't even know if this even counts as homemade ;) But it is just delicious so that is what counts in my book. I don't "love" pie crust but I do love graham crusts.!.
So since it is so so easy to make these kinds of pies you might need to make two Pie Placements just in case.
I cut kits for our group using a couple different fabric choices. I am excited to see how they all turn out.
I am so thankful for Weston and my kids!! and my life!! It feels like we are headed in an upward climb to something wonderful. So much to be thankful for. But I am also thankful for the struggles that I have had along the way. They have hopefully made me a stronger and more humble and more understanding.
I hope everyone enjoys these little quilts and please share if you do. Thank you!
See, Piece of Pie.
