Linda F. made us all Christmas ornaments like that one year, just on a styrofoam ball using little pins! What a cute idea for a mug-rug! I may have to make one up for myself!

I've made these using the styrofoam balls and pins, but this is neat too. I am guessing from the tutorial, you just sew near the bottom of each triangle. That definatly gives it a 3-D effect!

Wow! This is an old quilt pattern. My MIL has a few of these that she made when she was younger, about 30 years ago. With all the fabric and folds this does make a heavy block. She was thinking of making a quilt with the blocks that she had made, but didn't want to get trapped under the quilt! lol

Thanks for sharing this tutorial!  I'm going to try and make an ornament from this idea....not the stryofoam ball ornament but something flat and two sided and small.  I'll post pictures if I'm successful.

Thanks for the tutorial. I've also made ornaments using this technique.  This will be great for hotpads.

I've made this pattern twice to fit inside a quilting hoop. The first one is in Christmas fabrics and the second to match my room colours. I've searched through my pics but don't seem to have any .. I'll take a couple tomorrow and post.

Wow!  I took a class about 20+ years ago using that pattern in Christmas fabrics and stretching it into a quilting frame, too.  I think I still have it somewhere....  Thanks for the tutorial.  I've wanted to make a few more over the years, but couldn't find the pattern.

Did you design that pie holder?  It's just too cute.  If you feel like doing a tutorial here on QATW, I'd make some.  Great idea and it's perfect for those smaller pieces of fruit fabrics some of us may have lurking in their stash.

Hi, Deanne

I was taking a quilting class here in everett,WA. My teacher showed us many projects as well. This was one I could try to explain to you how to do it but my english is not very good and sometimes it's hard for me lol

FRUIT PIE TUTORIAL

I made two of then.

 

Step one:

That's you need:

Fruit filling fabric 10" square or a fat quater

Muslin fabric or if you like any other cotton fabric to make a sandwich together.

Grey fabric it looks like a ansulation but you can use a cotton fabric for the back.

Insul bright fleece

Cotton batting

Everything it 10" square.

Step 2 :

Put these fabric in this orden:  gray fabric, insul - bright,lining fabric, batting, insul- bright and grey fabric.

trace both circles 9" if you make two and sew around the circle.

 

I just drew a 7" small circle inside this big circle to make a quilting or you can do a optional quiling design.

Step 3:

cut 2" strips and fold edges of strips to center and fold .

Setp 4:

Put  5 strips in each direction about 1" apart to fruit fabric circle.

 sew  these strips and cut around  .

Step 5:

Hanging loop - cut strip of fruit fabric 1" x 5"

I made a diferent loop in  here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgT94EbGQtc&feature=player_embedded

Step 6 :

Binding - cut 3" x 20- 1/2 " make sure that's  enouth to finish this circle"  bias strips of gry fabric, fold both edges do center and fold again.

 

Step 7 :

Hand stitched the crust colored rick - rack to the front pie.  you can sew by machine too . Make sure to sew on the edges of the grey fabric binding.

I just sew it by hand   check out this link   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hD7DvARLlU

Awesome tutorial. Love the pie.  Maybe the pie tutorial could go in the "How to" so we can find it later.

Virginia,

Your tutorial is very well done.  Thank you so much for taking the time.  Yes, I agree with the others, let's put it in the "How To" thread for future reference.

Too bad you are not coming to Camp.  This would make a great class!

I've made a couple of the folded star hot pads recently. They are nice and thick once they are done.


Love the blueberry pie pot holder!

Those are very cute.  I may just have to get the pattern.

Thanks to all for sharing the links and the pie tute. I used to make the folded star many years ago in ornaments but somehow during 2 moves had lost the pattern. Since I need some new pot holders will definitely be making some of the fruit pie ones as I have lots of the fabrics.
