Fall has arrived in Southern Oregon. We live in a part of the state where there are Aspen trees which combine with our forests to give us some pretty amazing colors for fall.
Ken and I enjoy canoeing on Upper Klamath Lake in the summer but have not done the canoe trail in the fall, we are going to have to change that. It looks amazing.
The air has gotten much cooler, we have even had our first snows of the year. My winter bird friends are starting to return. And soups are often the main course now.
Our apple tree in the backyard is loaded with apples, and most seem to be out of reach of the deer so we are looking forward to a good harvest.
I am already thinking about what to do with them.
In the meantime I have enjoyed making this month's block: Apple Pie.
To get your copy of this pattern click HERE.
This block goes together pretty quickly. For those who might like a reminder on how to make and trim the Flying Geese to size I have a video tutorial I made for the We Can Build A Snowman quilt last year. The units are the same size so if you struggle with losing points on your geese you might want to take a look.
My Awesome Pattern Tuners-that is the name I have given my pattern testers-came up with some darling versions of the block.this month.
And now for the recipe:
I have a recipe I love for Apple Pie from my favorite cookbook: Cooking from Quilt Country. The recipes are good home cookin', but I really love the stories behind the recipes and the wonderful photographic journey through Amish country. I found a lovely copy a couple of weeks ago at an estate sale for just 50 cents which I gifted to a girlfriend.
When I searched online for a recipe to share I came across this one from Once Upon a Chef. Jenn Segal has written a wonderful tutorial-I may even try her suggestion to blind bake the crust, although I am much more likely to be lazy and skip that step, lol. Oh, but I can just hear Mary Berry in my head commenting on my "soggy bottom."
Just click on the photo to get the recipe.
I hope you enjoy this month's block. Let me know in the comments. After all of the work that goes into these patterns it is nice to hear from you and I always read and respond.
So until next time...
