Grasshopper Pie

Happy May!!

I would like to introduce you to 
Grasshopper Pie!!   

If you remember - each month I am trying to make a new block to use up my scraps, and stash.  I have made 2 quilts using this block and in the  middle of the night  - had an epiphany! 

If I made a Quilty Pie - I wouldn't have to count the calories!!

and So!!

Here it is - Grasshopper Pie


You will notice that it is not bound - but that is not for lack of trying!
I ran out of my light grey
and I ran out of my mint!


And of course, it was snowing , so ... I will head to town this week to find the mint.

This pattern is for sale in my Craftsy Pattern Store
It was such a fun one to put together and measures
61in x 76 in

Perfect for that couch!!

Oh, the trials and tribulations of quilting with scraps! Do you think a little darker gray would frame up nicely?

Well good for you. Getting out to the quilt shop is always a great idea after a snow storm. I'm sure your fellas will enjoy the comfort of this quilt even though it's not plaid. A girl's gotta have fun!

Now my mouth is watering, LOL. Nice quilt. You could face it and then you wouldn't have to match fabric.
