Pie Weather

 

Apart from washing, cleaning, baking and the general, weekend running around, I’ve spent a very enjoyable day travelling through the many quilt shops of America!

Apparently the Americans have a national Peach Pie Day and in honour of this special event,  many shops have put on great specials and hidden pie recipes and co-ordinating blocks in amongst their online shops.  I’ve been hopping about visiting, thanks to the FabShop.

Can’t you just picture a pie quilt with blocks like this…
