These are 12" blocks that I drew on graph paper sometime in the 90's and am just getting around to making. I know there is probably a name for this block but I don't know what it is and so far, all of my requests for helping me find the names for blocks have gone unanswered by my blog followers so I'll just call it the Buttercup block. I happened to see a video on line and it jogged my memory. A few years ago, I bought the #57 foot for my Bernina:
HERE. Anyway, this is the quarter inch foot that is just like the #37 but it has a fabric guide. You just run the fabric on the inside of that little arm and your seam is always perfect. If you are sewing on a piece of fabric, not on the edge (like when you draw a line down the middle of a square to make triangle blocks), you just run the little arm thingie right on the line. Anyway, I totally forgot I had it! I think because I ordered it right before I moved and moves always do a number on me. I HIGHLY recommend this foot! It makes all the difference!This day is also my son, Eric's, 44th birthday!
Wow, I can't believe it! Happy Birthday, Eric! He is graduating on the 7th to be a Reserve Sheriff's Officer. He will be the medical officer on the SWAT team. He loves guns and he thinks this will be a fun thing that will be a service to the community. As his Mom, I am less than thrilled at the thought of him suiting up to go to the most dangerous situations. Hopefully, he will just be doing community PR at the mall or something. Well, I have to go shower for my trip out in the public. Hope you have a great Tuesday! XO and cheery wave from Bev
