Hi Donna, Sorry it took a few days to reply. We just got home from a 2 week bus tour of Florida, and returned thru your part of the country. Yes, there are a few Glenda's out there and most of them were born in the same era, I think. But we are all "good witches" whether from KS or not. HA!
Yes, I enjoy the Overbrook shop, but don't get there as often as I like. There are 3 quilt shops in Topeka and all fun to visit.
Welcome to Gifty C. Donna!! Glad to have you and feel free to jump in, ask questions and leave posts! Its a fun group! We are gearing up for the new season on Gifty so not much going on right now in the way of projects. But, come June, look out!!!
After I cut the muslin pie wedges, I started with filling in at the bottom of the "pie" piece. I did cut out 8 of something so all the pieces were alike..8 pieces at the bottom, and filled in all 8 pie wedges, then did the next section etc, etc, until the wedges were done. I put fuse on the back of the fabric first, THEN cut the pieces out, laid them on, pressed into place (on all 8) then continued until all done..
The pattern for the 'Kiwi in the Pie' is adapated from a similar pattern in Quiting Arts mag. a couple issues back..I can tell you how I did mine tough..
I cut a cirlce as big as I wanted it from mulin. Then cut it up into 8 pie pieces. Cover each piece of muslin pie wedges with your fabrics until it's all coverd ( I fused the sections on then pressed), and cut any excess over-hanging fabric off and make it same as the pie wedge, then sew the wedges back together; two by two, then the halves are easier to sew together. Quilt and embellish as desired! Vry easy to do..
