I've been working on a work-in-progress! I stitched up these California Girl half-square triangles a few weeks ago...
Using a double-layered freezer paper template I've been slowly turning these squares into fun pie shaped pieces! Sorry for the slightly blurry photo above. I trim my fabric about 1/4'' larger than my template then use a paint brush and some spray starch to prepare the fabric before ironing that little edge over the freezer paper.
The result is some very nice little "pies" ready for applique! I will share the pattern I'm using when I get some blocks put together and ready to show.
I might be a little distracted this weekend though...the new Pioneer Woman cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier arrived the other day...and I can hardly put it down! It is absolutely amazing--beautiful photography, step-by-step photos, and recipes I can't wait to try. Seriously, I think I might need to make every dish in the book!
Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you get to sew this weekend!
