Stitched together these slices make lovely pies (calorie free of course!) for the Pies & Tarts quilt designed by Sue Daley of Patchwork with Busyfingers. I know it's another EPP project, but this time instead of basting with needle & thread I'm glueing the fabric to the templates using a fabric glue pen by Sewline, which saves alot of prep time. See Sue's mini tutorial here.
I'm blaming the lovely Shirley of Stitcherydo for enticing me into starting this by showing her gorgeous pies here so we are now both working on this project & finding it as addictive as the Klosjes, Clamshells & Hexagons. I've been gradually building a little stash of red, blue & shirtings fabrics this last year which are perfect for this design as I've wanted to make a quilt using these colours for some time now. This pattern is also ideal for using up lots of different fabrics helping to reduce those piles of scraps we all collect.The Quilt Room in the UK have started this as a BOM from the 1st September, so we reckon there are going to be quite a few out there stitching pies & were wondering if there's anyone else working on this design who would be interested in a Pies & Tarts club? Drop us an email or comment if you're interested.
Have a great weekend :)
