It's that time of the year, a time for fruit to ripen, markets to be open and plentiful sources of fruits and vegetables available.
This very cute pot holder is inspired by the fruits of summer, picnics, potlucks and family get togethers.
It's raspberry pie time!
mmmm my favourite was the pie at Stone Crock in St Jacobs!
What you will need make this "Raspberry Pie":
How to make it:
3. Audition your lattice by cutting 8- 10" lengths and weaving them on your pie fabric. Weave them under and over each other. Glue them in place with a dab of fabric glue.
4. Lay all 3 layers of fabric, the top, Insul-Bright and Backing together as if its a quilt and pin to baste and hold together.
5. Top stitch about 1/8" in on all sides of the lattice with cream coloured threads through all layers. Trim around the edge of your pie.
6. Make a hanging tab by pressing your 5" x 2" piece of fabric in 1/4" on the long sides and then fold it in half encasing the raw edges. Top stitch this to close the finished edge.
7. Press the hanging tab in half and place the raw edges against the edge of the front of your pie where you think it looks best, sew it 1/8" from the edge to secure through all layers. leave the loop laying against the pie top
8. Press your grey binding/pie plate edge fabric in 1/2 to make binding as you would a quilt and sew it slowly to the front edge of your pie. Finger press to the back of your pie and hand stitch in place.
9. Sew on your rick rack by placing the valley of the rick rack just against the inside edge of the binding on the pie fabric and stitching down the centre. You will also need to tuck in the rick rack ends carefully so they look neat.
It's done! Almost good enough to eat and way less calories.
I hope you enjoyed this little project and that you make many "pies" this summer!
Please send us your photos so that we can share all of your productive efforts.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️

Hello Robin! I just found your blog when I "purchased" one of your free patterns on Craftsy. I'm usually not interested in anything other than quilt blocks and quilts, but this pie potholder is the bomb! I absolutely have to make some of these. We live in SC, USA, and we have a lot of blueberries ripening. Now I have to go and pick out some yummy fabric. Thanks sew much for your blog and tutorials. I am glad I found you!
Hi Darlene, I'm so glad you like my "pie" pot holder. I love it too and want to make more!!! Especially since it is pie season. I am also glad you found us! - keep an eye out every week, I "try" to share what I am working on. Please send me a pic at email@example.com of your own "pies" and I will be happy to share on the blog. Thanks again :) Robin
