Lattice Fruit Pie Trivet

Who wants some pie? I've got the best kind of pie there is with these adorable Lattice Fruit Pie Trivets, along with a free tutorial to make your own!

Made for the In the Kitchen Stitchin Blog Hop, hosted by one of my favorite quilters, Carla, of Creatin In the Sticks. Both she and Carol of Just Let Me Quilt always have such fun hops! And this one is no different.


And don't those pies look delicious? I can't decide which I like better: the blueberry or the multi-fruit of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Definitely a tough choice!

These are so cute that I'd rather use them as trivets to pretty up the table than fold them and mess them up as potholders. With all the filling of batting, insul-fleece, and the stitching, they're a bit on the stiff side for potholders anyway.  That may be just fine for some, but for me, I like seeing their deliciousness on the table!

Want to make your own? Then grab the following ingredients and let's make a pie!

Lattice Fruit Pie Trivet Ingredients

Makes 2 pie trivets

  • 1/4 yard fruit themed cotton prints
  • 1/4 yard insul-fleece (the one with the metal in it)
  • 1/4 yard all cotton batting
  • 1/4 yard backing (I used beige, a 'crust' color)
  • 1 1/2 yard (or 1 pkg) medium or .5 inch beige ric rac
  • 1 1/2 yard (or 1 pkg) 5/8" wide beige double fold bias tape
  • 1 new, sharp, size 14 needle 


Step 1 - Cut circles

Use a circle cutting tool or an 8" plate or bowl as a template to cut the following number of circles:

2 (two) from beige backing, and insul-fleece 

4 (four) from cotton batting.

1 (one) from each of the fruit prints, for a total of 2 (two) 

cutting circles with a half circle template



Step 2 - Layer the pie

Stack the cut circles in the following order to make two pies:

backing, cotton, insul-fleece, cotton, fruit print

BTW, I placed the exposed metal of the insul-fleece up to (hopefully) better reflect the heat back to the dish and not onto my table

Step 3 - Baste

To keep layers from shifting, use a long stitch length to baste circles together, with a line parallel on two sides. Baste a group 2 and a group of 3,

then baste all 5 together. Finish the basting by stitching close to the circle edge.

Remove straight line basting stitches before proceeding to Step 4.



Step 4 - Add lattice

Cut bias tape lattice strips for the center and each side, 6 (six) pieces total. Stitch in place using a zig zag stitch and thread to match the 'crust'. Trim lattice ends when done.

Easy lattice:

Starting in the pie center, add bias tape lattice strips there and on each side. Add the remaining three lattice strips perpendicular to the first set.

Woven lattice

If weaving the lattice strips, cut all six bias strip pieces, weaving them over and under each other. Start stitching with the 'under' center piece, keeping pieces that go on top folded back out of the way. Continue stitching down strips for the woven effect.

Step 5 - Apply bias binding

Pin bias binding to the edge, overlapping and folding back final end for a nice finish. If necessary, use a bit of glue to hold binding in place.



Stitch binding with trivet backside up (fruit print face down) for even zig zag stitches along binding edge. Do not worry about catching the binding on the front of the trivet - it gets covered in the next step.



 

Step 6 - Apply ric rac to front

Using a longer straight stitch, around 3.5-4, stitch ric rac to the front covering binding edge and with ric rac at the trivet edge. Fold back the ends for a clean finish.



Step 7 - Enjoy!

  7. Those look so yummy! I'll take a slice of each, lol! Thanks for the tutorial. I can even use my circle and strip die cuts to make one of these. But I don't think I have anymore fruit fabric left, but a few scraps, so maybe I can make a scrappy fruit pie??? LOL!
