All of us in the states are eating our turkeys, hams, side dishes and pumpkin pie and things today – and the rest of you are wondering why we like all things pumpkin! I read that someplace I don’t remember where I saw it – yes a lot of us like pumpkin and seem to only eat it in the fall. I had my pies made by afternoon yesterday. Three Pumpkin and 1 pecan. Melanie will take some home with her otherwise I would be eating pie for for awhile – and I eat too much of it and will need to get some walks in the next couple of days.
I love these pie crust shields that I bought last year – you can find them in a variety of places – Amazon has them here – just wrap them around your crust about half way through the baking time and your crust won’t get too dark. I have 3 of them now and I think I will get another – they come in single packs or double.
In the morning while pies were baking I finished piecing the rows of the scrappy charm package quilt together.
Then later in the afternoon after it was all pressed I got the first border cut – it is just stuck to the wall right now it is not pieced to the body of the quilt. I have two borders of green and two of brown – the next border will be the opposite brown by the green and green by the brown. Should I turn those Half Square corners so the color is on the inside of the border or keep them pointing out? I’m contemplating so I didn’t sew it yet.
I was asked to show a better photo of the thread cone holder that I have – this is it – I got it as a present a couple years ago – Mike got it from Connecting Threads (no affiliation)– I checked – it is still there – it is nice and study and decorative besides being useful.
This much quilting done on Murrieta Stars on Tuesday night.
This much left to do before it gets rolled down again – I was working on it last night for awhile.
