I was all done when I posted yesterday. It was definitely time to clean house or read a book. Yet ... Pie a la Mode kept calling me. The brown border had me excited as the whole started to come together. What would it look like with the dark blue border? I had to know ......
The name Pie a la Mode was greatly influenced by the fabric - color and name - Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs. Every stitch had me dreaming of warm blueberry pie topped with creamy vanilla ice cream. A quick trip to the grocery after all the piecing has the blueberries in my refrigerator and the ice cream snuggled in my freezer. This evening the two shall meet.
The pattern is Carrie Nelson's Decoy from her another Bite of Schnibbles book. I am sold on the adorable little quilts (wall hangings - table toppers - pretties to admire!)
I've a busy day ahead. My favorite,for today, that is Ha! Ha!, niece turns 5. I have not seen her yet today but last night she was very convinced she would LOOK different this morning. I am excited to see the change! The party is a Disney Princess theme being held outside in the Florida sun. Should prove to be interesting! Ms Cha Cha cat has decided to skip the party - she says cats do not do parks full of running, jumping, "crazed" 5 year olds.
HAPPY QUILTING TO ALL!
