Sweetie Pie Sew Along
This week it's my stop on the Sweetie Pie Sew Along! :love: You can follow along and use Lori Holt's free pattern here, and get the pie ruler and shapes in her Etsy shop. There's even a helpful video tutorial to really get you going.
Dresden plates, more cutely called pie slices here ;) , are a really fast sew. Plus, making the appliqué pieces using interfacing is also an easy way to get those perfect shapes.
I used Lori's Sew Cherry 2 fabric for my block, it's so bright, summery, and cheery. Our Lyla recently upgraded to a big girl's bed. So, I ended up turning my block into a quilted pillow to go on it just because I really wanted to use what I'd sewn right now.
I chose the lemon to depart from the strawberries that normally dominate in my fabric choices. I do love my strawberries!
Some bright blue polka dots to go on the back to add a fun pop ,and some simple free-motion quilting for a little texture. And overall, it's made a fun addition to my little girl's bedroom. Check out Anorina of Samelia's Mum next Monday for the next block!
