This season is good motivation
to finish up those quilt projects that have been
Easy As Pie
and mailed off
to a favorite Sister In Law
With the Pie shaped circles,
I can see why the designer used the name Pie in the title,
but it was anything but Easy.
All of those circles were put together with inset seams.
I remember taking a class several years ago
with my girlfriend Judi
to learn how to make this particular pattern
and she aptly re-named it
"Easy As HELL!"
Even though the technique was challenging
I enjoyed a feeling of accomplishment
when the seams miraculously matched up
and the circles didn't end up with a volcano effect :)
Thank heavens for long arm quilters
who can stitch a lot of those bumps down.
This is a good Scrappy pattern,
(I love making scrappy quilts)
and I chose Reproduction type fabrics
typical in the 1930's
which are a good match for my
Sister In Law's taste.
I hope she likes it.
