Viola is coming along and Fall ....

 I just finished piecing my 4 Viola quilt blocks.
All that is left is making the 4 stem blocks and I can finish sewing it together.

The pattern has 16 blocks but I do not need a big quilt that is 82 1/2" x 82 1/2".
I am using Farmhouse Fig Tree fabrics.  It was love at first site when I saw this fabric line.

The trees are starting to change color and it is getting cooler.
When even have had a fire the last couple of days. Love this time of year !

We had 3 bucks hanging out in our front yard yesterday .
They know they are dafe here

We saw this fellow at a place in town we had lunch at. I thought he was pretty cool looking

We then went to the movies to see  " The Martian  " with  Matt Damon . I would highly recommend you go see this movie .

The Seams Sew Easy Seam Guide

Many of you have inquired about how the SEAMS SEW EASY SEAM GUIDE by LORI HOLT of BEE IN MY BONNET  RILEY BLAKE DESIGNS  is adhered to the sewing machine without tape .  If you looks closely at my picture you will see the clear circles attached underneath the guide in all 4 corners . These 4 double sided stick circles are included with the guide and easily keep the guide in place when you are sewing

Here is a tutorial on Lori Holt's blog explaining more about the SEAMS SO EASY SEAM GUIDE

I bought mine HERE
They come in 4 different colors.... RED, GREEN , AQUA  and PINK

I love mine :-D

The surface of this guide has a texture that holds your fabric in place so that it does not slide around

A very busy month...

Hi Everybody and Happy Fall !!!

I have not posted in quite awhile

My Dad became very ill and was put in intensive care for a week then transferred to  acute care facility for 2 weeks . He is now home and being  taken care of by in home care.

So to say the least no sewing has been going on here.

Before all of this happened I was starting to make my blocks for VIOLA using Farmhouse fabric.

This has been hanging on my design wall  for almost 1 month

This is what I have been using all these years .......

And now I have the SEAMS SEW EASY SEAM GUIDE  by Lori Holt
No morning tape coming undone . Can't wait to try it :-D
Maybe I can find some time this weekend to sew this block together and start another one.
