Hurray! I am so glad I am done with this block. I prepped the applique pieces a loooong time ago, lost them, and found them again and finished it this week. The fabric is from Heather Ross' Mendocino line, which I hear is in limited quantities now. Apparently she signed a non-compete agreement when she sold her Munki Munki line, so is having legal issues with designing fabric. I love her stuff, and hope it gets sorted out soon! As for the block, it is hand appliqued and machine pieced.
Pies are another one of those things that I never grew up eating. Now I love savory pies, like pot pies, but sweet dessert pies are still hard for me. I definitely like it with ice cream though!
