Ben, Ben Where Have you Been....Giggle

Block 21

Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt

I so enjoyed using my perfect 1/4 inch foot with the little guide.  Everything looked wonderful, but of course someone needs to make the perfect scant 1/4 inch foot with a guide.  
It just took a little tweaking to get my block finished.  I think I like this one the best so far.  Erik....great job of course as always.

I do believe all the blocks are still there and best of all FREE!  Hop over and get yours.

Easter Weekend in my front yard.

Hahahaha and this little guy.  The girls wanted to do a pinata.

So fun!!!  I even went outside (yes I did) and took a swing.

Linking up!

I really like the colors you chose for this block. I will have to check this mystery quilt out. Oh the dreaded perfect scant 1/4" seam, sometimes it can be elusive. Beautiful family!! Glad you had a wonderful day

There's nothing like knocking the stuffing out of a pinata....

Great looking the colors! A pinata makes any holiday fun, doesn't it!

Boy, Isla has certainly grown into a beautiful young lady - well why not - her mom is a beauty too. I have never done a pinata, how fun.

good looking block. I do like the blue frame in the middle. I like my 1/4" foot with the guide too.
Great photo of your granddaughter.

Oh what fun! I've never hit a pinata in my life! Great pics of your family surrounded by all those lovely flowers :) I have the same problem with 1/4" feet!

Perfect sweet block :)

That block turned out beautifully. Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter!

Oh, cool - I love this Ben block. And Yes! A perfect scant-1/4 foot would be terrific. I really love the 1/4" feet for both of my machines - each one does right by me in a major way. ;D Gorgeous pics from Easter there, Billie!

Nice block and lovely Easter photos. I think the trick to a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance when using the foot with the guide is to cut the pieces a tad bigger. Then the guide works.

I love piñatas. We had them a lot when the boys were small. Love your block. I've saved each pattern and hope to do them all someday. Life is probably not going to be long enough to do all the things I have saved!
