Print the shapes for Sue Daley’s lovely Pie & Tarts quilt for better results than using Pie & Tarts templates. Sew by hand or machine.

This is a fabulous scrappy design. Sue agreed that it should be available to quilters who love machine piecing or hand piecing with a running stitch, not just paper piecers.

System Requirements – Windows or Mac with Adobe Reader (not a phone or tablet) and any ordinary color Inkjet printer or all-in-one.

dimensions of Pie & Tarts quilt blocks

Sue and I both received requests from quilters who wanted to make her Pie & Tarts quilt with Inklingo, so we worked together on this shape collection. Sue is an expert paper piecer and specializes in patterns for English Paper Piecing (EPP). Her website is Patchwork with Busy Fingers.

The four short seams in the background eliminate the need for appliqué, for those who prefer piecing (hand or machine).

    I love that Linda has designed this collection so that the pies and tarts do not have to be appliqued onto the background fabric. Unless of course, you want to do that. =) Linda provides a way to print the background fabric with the lines for back basting if you’re so inclined. This is another collection that has me fussy cutting fabric for kaleidoscopic effects.

    I made my Pies and Tarts because I’m so in love with anything circles in quilts. I had just finished a very romantic soft coloured quilt so this one I made of all bright polka dots. What fun I had making this quilt. So easy to line up those perfect circle.
    Could never have done it with Inklingo!!! If you’d like to see a picture of my Pies and tarts..you can find it http://sewlmatesister.blogspot.ca/search?updated-max=2012-05-25T23:39:00-04:00&max-results=7&start=3&by-date=false

    I just finished my first Pie – and I am here to report that it is a joy to stitch. The wedges of the pie go together so quickly – and are perfectly suitable for machine stitching – although I prefer hand piecing. Adding the background to the Pie gives you the opportunity for a long uninterrupted stretch of continuous stitching.

    I have 4 other Inklingo projects in progress but I dropped everything to download this beautiful pattern.

    These shapes are a joy to play with!! And calorie-free baking? Priceless! 🙂

    I’m so excited! This is the best desert ever, and I’ll still be able to indulge even during Lent! this works perfectly with thw BOM I got last year. So glad I didn’t do more than 3 months worth with the EPP. Both are great, but I’m in the “Inklingo state of mind”. Now, if Linda and Monkey could come up with a download for extra time……

    I have wanted to do this for so long but I am just OVER EPP! Inklingo makes this a breeze. You just have to try it to be hooked.
