Remember The Count from Sesame Street? He was one of my son Tim's favorite characters as a little boy. Tim could imitate that laugh perfectly.
Well, I felt like The Count over New Year's weekend, as I counted my pile of English paper pieced 8.5" blocks for my Pies and Tarts quilt.
"… 97, 98, 99, 100! One hundred English paper pieced pie blocks! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!"
I have to confess I still have a handful to stitch to the background squares, but all of the big circles are DONE! Now on to the 88 little circle tarts to appliqué on top of the intersecting corners of the 100 pie blocks. One of my 2012 resolutions is to finish this quilt top before 2013.
Here is a link to an earlier post about this quilt, designed by Sue Daly of Patchwork by Busyfingers. My hubby has dubbed it "the ugliest quilt in the world." (He's not too fond of turn-of-the-century reproduction print fabrics.) But my daughter loves it. She has dibs on this one. http://pasqueflowerponderings.blogspot.com/2011/06/ugliest-quilt-in-world.html
Speaking of 100, I'm getting very close to 100 followers on my fledgling blog. Thanks to all of you who already follow Ponderings. I am happy to count you among my cyber friends.
