iPhone-o-gram! One more for the road!

Just one more!

I am so not used to big chunky pieces but I am envisioning this set with the sold red sashings and cornerstones like the antique quilt that inspired it and quilt it up in big stitch with pearl cotton!

Big baptist fans, anyone!?

DH and I are headed out to dinner and some last minute errand running. Turns out what I thought was a travel converter for electric items is only an adapter--not the same thing!

It may be too late for QuiltCam by the time I get back, but we'll see!

Tomorrow may be busy too---he's talking about running up to the mountains for the day and since I'll be gone for 12 days I feel I should go too!

Off I go!

Bonnie...it's never too late for webcam! :)

Glad you showed how to put that block together. I thought I could figure out any block, but not that one! Gee! Thanks!

I will need a refresher course on your hand-quilting baptist fans without a template(I could not find it, when I tried the blog search).

Thanks,
cy from Canada

Where can I find directions for that block? Love big blocks to show off some fabrics. I could probably figure it out, but why reinvent the wheel!

... did you mean "here when you CAM?" === sometimes i make myself laugh!

Beautiful blocks. I was about ready to ask what size before I scrolled down. I never would have guessed at the construction. They will make a great quilt! Maybe after Bali

See previous post! All there including directions that can be printed out!! How's that for a wonderful service from our favorite quilter-THE one and only BONNIE????

Running errands today--ended up in quilt shop where there was a "Go" cutter demo. The lady asked if I'd ever heard of Bonnie Hunter. We've both been watching you. Ha! We had such a fun conversation.

I keep the video stream running on U-stream site, that way it doesn't get stopped when I refresh to read the newest comments on the blog page.

FYI--a link lives permanently on the Tips and Techniques tab, named Freehand Baptist Fans.

I use a paddle thimble, so no "claw" position needed. It was really weird for a couple hours, now I easily do even, fine stitches. Here it is: http://www.houseofquilting.com/handheld-quilting-thimble.php

Background music. I know it's there, but usually I can't hear well enough to know what song is playing usually. That's fine with me. Better soft than too loud to hear you.

(sorry to post again, but I had this on comments for some other post

Hi Bonnie,

I'm sitting here working on a needlepunch kit. I feel the need for some handwork. I'm working on 2 baby quilts for a friend's twin grandbabies.

It's such a beautiful evening here in NH. BTW, when are you coming to visit us in the "Granite State?"

Gail :)
