Good Morning, Quilters, Doodlers, Bakers, and Pie-Eaters!
Welcome to another Tuesday Tutorial for free motion or long arm quilting!
Last week we stitched the Cheery Cherry . This week we’re adding a motif that would look “sweet” paired with the cherries and it’s Easy as Pie!
I have a quilt “baking” in my brain using both these motifs, but it still needs more doodling to come to fruition…
EASY AS PIE-FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing a rectangle. For the tutorial below, the rectangle was 5 inches wide and 3-1/2 inches tall.
Begin stitching just above the lower line and approximately 1 inch in from the left side.
Stitch an angled line to create the side of the pie pan. Next stitch 2 and 1/2 shallow scallops. Stop here.From the center, add three loops 0r vent holes for the pie crust.Complete the top of the crust by finishing the other half of the middle scallop and adding two more.Next, working from right to left, add a few more shallow scallops to create the bottom of the pie crust.Echo stitch the left side of the pie tin then stitch along the bottom line. Add the right side of the pie tin by stitching up and at an angle and echo stitching to the bottom line. Stitch over several stitches to create the next pie if you are baking a row of pies.Another option is to add echo stitching around the top of the pie and adding a few loop embellishments. Julia Child would be so proud!
My family LOVEs pie and I love making pies…(The only pie I really like to eat is apple pie with lots of ice cream…so really what I like is ice cream and not pie.)
What about YOU? Would you rather stitch a pie or bake a pie (or eat a pie)?
And what is YOUR favorite kind of pie?
We’d love to hear!
