Puddin' and Pie Quilts

Several years ago I exchanged these blocks with friends. Basically it's a modified Rail Fence with most strips cut 2.5 by 6.5 inches. They are so simple to make; the two points are in the middle of the block making it easily trimmable. Four together make a traditional Puddin' and Pie block. Over the years I've made several quilts with them.

This is one of my favorite borders. The notched ends give it a ribbon effect.

The Puddin' and Pie blocks are alternately set with Boot blocks to create this nine-block baby quilt.

The outer border was made with original blocks and some mirrored blocks to look like "T"s.

Western-themed fabric is used to create a baby quilt in red, black, brown, blue, tan and white.

These two were given to brothers. I waited years for their cousins to appear but finally gave up and made a quilt for the local hospice.

Western fabrics in red, black, brown and blue alternating with white and tan fabrics create the windmill shape of the block.

Never give up. A cousin arrives this year. There were only sixteen blocks and their mirrors left. I don't want another alternate set so I'll play around for a while.

Fret not; enjoy the day. Ann
