About 4 years ago, my local quilt shop "Quilters Haven" ran a monthly programme called "Stash Pot Pie". Each month, some very enthuisiastic and excited quiters went along with fabrics from their stash to make a quilt - and this particular pattern was called "Queen of Tarts" and was taught by Karin Hellaby. This was one of my first "big quilts" that I made and it always reminds me of my favourite pudding, Lemon Meringue Pie, as it is so sharp and sweet.....
I've added the words "sweet dreams" to one of the setting triangles - this was taken from a book by Nancy Halvorsen called "The Winsome Baby". I try to add stitchery to most of my quilts, sometimes on the quilt top, and sometimes on the reverse as a label - and now it has sort of become my "signature". When life deals you lemons.....make Lemon Meringue Pie!! This has to be my absolute favourite pudding - tangy sharp lemon, with sweet meringue topping - crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. You just can't beat home-made puddings, and a few simple ingredients turn from this...
...into this!! Delia would be proud of me. We had friends round for supper last night, and it proved to be a big hit. As you can see my friend Wendy thought it was delicious - and says when can she come round for supper again!!
