Join Me on QuiltCam!

I'm tackling that dreadfully boring zig-zag border for my Nearly Completely Insane quilt this evening!

I'm turning on the QuiltCam for about an hour or so, in case you want to grab a project and come sew along with me.

*Note* If it says OFFLINE below -- you missed it! It's live streaming, not a recording, so you can't play it back like re-runs, you'll just have to join us next time!

Just turned a spicy spiral table runner right side out, so I've got a lot of finger pressing to do of all those curved edges. About as thrilling as what you're doing, Bonnie!

Bonnie, Renea and I will be waiting for more details on that Alaska cruise! We really enjoyed the Caribbean cruise last November (OOPS - do we have to finish the Mai Tai quilt first??)

Judy D in WA said...

Hanging out while dinner is cooking. Someone thinks his dinner is more important that watching you sew. WHAT?? So I guess I'll be the good wife. LOL Later tonight I'll plan to finish the Sow A Long blocks.

Hi Bonnie! We are going to MISS you on your trip to Bali... you are spoiling us!
Hey, how do you REALLY feel about what you are sewing?!?! lol
Funny to hear you go on about a project you don't like. I have so many like that. Good for you for "just doing it!"
I am SOOOOO excited to hear about your Alaskan cruise! That is the ONLY cruise I ever want to go on!!!~ Love Alaska

Just tuned in, are you sewing on "Doris" Doris Day is my mentor, I wore my hair like her. What are you making?

Bonnie - quiltcam is too cool. I'm seeing it for the first time. I agree with you 100% about having enough of the political junk!

Why dont you put a sign on the giant spool?

Amen Sister on the political ads. I don't watch Tv either anymore!!

Have scraps, will follow!

scraphappy said...

I'm in for itty bitty spools. I cheated and made my bow-ties bigger, they were still adorable.

this would be a first time for me on the leader/ender challenge - count me in.

Maree St Clair said...

Hi Bonnie! It's Maree in Australia! Sitting here having morning coffee, just loaded a quilt ready for a panto!! Nice to say hi!!

Kay said...

Count me in for 3" spools.

momto1 said...

Smaller's better in my book. those little blocks look so cure, and if we can't stand to make a full-sized quilt, we can always make a wall-hanging.

Lynelle said...

Bonnie... can you repeat what you said about the spool along leader enders? Just as you were speaking there was a commercial for something,...I have no idea what it was since it was in spanish!

You know you enjoy what you're doing when you can sit in a room all alone and talk to 300 people who cannot answer you and never run out of things to say. I have to say, I'm addicted to your webcast! ha ha

jeri said...

Spent the day sewing with my three sisters. Fun to see you tonite. They all commented on my "leader enders"

gmp said...

For your new followers, can you explain a little more about what leaders and Enders are? I would be willing to sign on to do the blocks if I knew what it involved.

Hi Bonnie, I would love to do those 3 inch spools. Thanks to you I already have my 1 1/2 inch squares cut!

Small spools would be fun! Great to see you tonite. I'm stitching along. This is so much fun. Thanks for letting us in to you world at home.

Sue K said...

Sue from Charleston here...yay, finally caught you on quilt cam. Just wondering, do you mark those squares or are you eyeballing them?

Bonnie, I am sewing along with you! I am just starting your scrap user's system. I wonder, how do you handle scraps that are prewashed and then scraps that aren't? Is it ok to use them in the same quilt?

mefutch said...

Just checked on UStream site - It listed "Live Cams with most viewers" and Quiltville was #12 on the page! Got the Ravens on TV and you on my laptop. Enjoy watching.

Ele said...

Bonnie, I have problems with cramping toes, so I turned the foot pedal of my FW around so I can press the button with my heel, and it works great for me. I have also used my left foot, but the heel works great for me. This is my first time joining this fun!!

Janny Wanny said...

What technique do you use for binding the zig zag border? I tried one method of clipping seams and then pulling the fabric as straight as possible which is supposed to give me the "corner" turn but that isn't working so well so I am having to take the binding off and starting over.

Charon said...

Hi Bonnie, I'm working on the zigzag border for Midnight Flight, wish I had watched quilt cam first. Pressing the uphills and downhills would have nested better. Oh well next time !

Katie said...

350+ current views and 1060+ total views - WOW!!! HI QUILT-Y WORLD!!!

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

If she made her quilt by hand - maybe she worked on the border blocks in between the scrappy blocks - to break up the monotony of the border blocks and to break up the "insanity" of the other ones - you know - switching back and forth - I would probably do it that way - ;))

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

Love how your machine sounds... It's kind of purring :)

Crystal said...

Bonnie I would love to stay with the party but since my computer and sewing is in 2 different room it's time I put my Celtic Mist music on and get to sewing strips on those tee-shirt blocks. Love this live cam thing!

Kate in CT said...

Bonnie--Love the Quilt Cam, it's just like sitting in the studio with friends to quilt. This is just the best. Still working on My Blue Heaven.

Hi Bonnie, It's lovely to have my first view of you at work. I'm in Australia too, I really want to do one of your classes some day. Keep up the excellent work - and sharing! Eddie, Tasmania Australia

Terri in BC said...

Bonnie, your phone charger, camera cord and laptop should have converters built in, as I discovered when I went to Italy. All of my cords were good for 110-240V, and the only thing I needed was the adaptor for the actual plug. Most convertors have the plug adapter separate, so you can use them like that. Have a great trip!

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

You do not need a converter for your apple laptop. The power supply supports both 110v and 220v. All you need is a prong adapter

Sharon said...

I know that Quilt Cam won't be in Bali but do you think it will go on the road with you?

Cousin Jill said...

Several of us,are excited about alaskan cruise....can ya tell us more yet?

Mommy Robin said...

Never a crowd lover, there aren't many people I am willing to go see if it involves crowds or lots of unknown people. Jim Brickman and you were both defiitely worth it - if you ever have a chance to see him, go. I'd quite happily travel to see either of you again!

Peace and Joy,

hi Bonnie, why don't you use thread snips to cut apart your strip piecing? Ramona from Maine

Bev Gunn@kwiltpharm@aol.com said...

Bonnie, just went through K'ville yesterday-bringing my daughter home from Jacksonville! We hit the traffic problem just into Virginia and ended up putting in for the night and got back to Indiana this evening. Dear daughter carried in new Singer (old)machine and asked where I wanted her to put my "JUNK"? They have never been appreciative of my sewing machines-but then, I have only had the kids for 6 years (adopted from Russia in 2006) My miracle family is sure a great way for me to live!

Brenda R said...

How are your legs doing? Any better at all? Have your tried leg support hose? I just love those on my legs when I see. Also you might consider purchasing a new chair or adding more cushion as you might be pinching a nerve or restricting blood flow depending how your sitting and for how long I your chair

Lisa said...

Hi Bonnie,
Thanks so much for all you do for all of us Bonnie Junkies!! I have not been able to get to my sewing machine since the weekend as I am housebreaking my new puppy and since he is drop dead beautiful I cant seem to keep my eyes off of him. Besides at the rate he will grow he wont be small for long (St.Bernard)
I recently learned a great tip from a quilting friend that you might be interested in. Sew using your left foot on the pedal so you can use your knee lift with your right without stopping on slowing down. It really helped me improve my production. It will not work on your featherweight but will for your Bernina and Janome!! It takes a bit to get used to but it is second nature for me now. Love the webcam, keep it up it is the next best thing to being there!!

Patty said...

Hey Bonnie, We want a view of your fabric stash!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree, it looks like the slowest way ever to snip apart your units. I just use that thingy they have on the side of most sewing machines. Then again if you're using one of your old "classics" maybe they didn't have that invention yet.

Katie said...

So you don't draw lines? Do you pin? I think I see a pin there.

Andee said...

Amy and I are out here listening! Bonnie Groupies that we are! :)

Shirley said...

Bonnie, do you know what ads come across the bottom of the screen--and occasionally take over the whole screen? Or is that randomly determined by Ustream? Just curious...

Sue's Stitchin' said...

I missed the beginning - are your bonus triangles already sewn? How dso you get them to come out the same size - when I do them the seam is always in a different place so the bonus triangles are not equal. Any tips? thanks - Sue K

About the ads - you can x-out the small ones across the bottom. The full size ads block you totally, but the person watching can pay to upgrade so they won't get ads.

Karen in Kentucky said...

So what color is the Featherweight?? I missed last night's video.

Is it a cool one like the one that was ruined?

Full screen still allowed ads to come to me on my laptop. 8^(

So glad you are doing the QuiltCam. I'm using Firefox as my browser and haven't noticed an ad. I've noticed sometimes a delay or a little glitch, but never saw an ad and I'm not watching in full screen mode.

A Roku is a box that attaches to your tv like Apple tv or google tv. I can watch netflix, Hulu and pandora, and other premium and free channels. There are great old movie channels etc. I added Ustream which means no ads. and I can watch you on my tv.

Enjoying the video, Bonnie. No ads on my iPhone. I can't wait to see your completed quilt.

Laura said...

Are silverfish attracted to starch? I missed a tiny bit of what you said I think and just wondered! Thanks!

Tracy Johnson said...

I worked as an baggage and gate agent for a major (big jets) airlines for 20 years. The best case that I saw was for a frequent traveler that had a powered wheelchair. They had taken a hard sided suit case and lined it with the black foam (like they make cushions or line gun cases with) and cut form fitted cubbies for the machine parts that were so fragile. They make carry on sized firm suitcases, you could do this for your carry-on just in case you do have to gate check your suit case. Even if the gorilla that we have working down stairs loading luggage misses your bag things do shift and it is always that fragile bag on the bottom, Muphy's Law. I would think that the green outdoor cushion foam would work well for your suit case.

Kevin the Quilter said...

You got it Bonnie! Of course we may run into a lot of naked quilters because their luggage got lost because they checked them while they brought their sewing machines with them as a carry on!

bunbear said...

i think you might have to customize your machine packing system but it should be easy enough. think two large heavy plastic bags, one on each side of machine in the box you are taking it in, then fill with insta foam type product. would form exactly to your machine in two halves because it is in two bags. might have to play with it a bit to get the idea right. just a thought...

horsegal88 said...

Hi Bonnie. Are sewing machines provided on the cruise? Cynthia in SC

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

I Wonder whether the featherweight could fit in a travel camera suitcase. I have an aluminum case with reinforced corners that is filled with pre-cut foam (like little fingers) you just pull out the foam bit to make a snug form that cradles your camera and lenses. I has a good lock and you can literally stand on them as are super sturdy.

Katie said...

The only ads I am getting are for FABRIC!! so I really don't mind, although they're kinda loud, in which I just push mute. . so as not to wake up my snoring hubby. ;c)

Debbie Lou said...

It's not that I mind seeing the ads, it's the fact that I miss pieces of your transmission when they are on. Just an FYI! But I am really enjoying our time together...all hundreds of us! Happy Sewing!

Bonnie
I used to have to pack Air Force engine parts. We had a way of creating a preformed image of the part and as we packed the part in the box we just inserted the Pre made form inserts. They took a part and covered it with heavy plastic then filled it with foam and then removed the form and cut it into 4 pieces for insertion in a box. How about seeing if UPS or Fed Ex could make you a custom box with a custom foam insert.

Thanks so much Bonnie, that was so much fun to see you sewing away in your sewing room. I've been trimming up some pieced units started a year or more ago that were just sitting around, your live cam was for me the perfect way to distract me from how boring a job was that I've been putting off doing for far too long!
Oh and so as people know, I'm using Firefox and have flipped between full screen and small screen, on desktop. Makes no difference, I'm gettings ads, but like you say it pays for the live cam. Fancy being able to piece alongside you whilst I'm all the way over in Australia? Next time its laptop by sewing machine!

CoCo Quilter said...

I have enjoyed the company as I sew along. Thanks! I am also inspired to get out my spare machine and take her for a drive since she has been neglected and also my mother's Singer Portable. She is a heavy girl for a portable machine but I learned to sew on her and she needs some time and love too.

Bonnie,

I got to watch you tonight for a little while. Thanks for the tips on taking care of vintage machines. At a garage sale they had one for sale in a cabinet for $20 but the wheel would not turn and it seemed locked up. I didn't buy it. Would that have meant it might not work? Barby MH, ARK

I happened to come across your message about live cam about 10:00 p.m. when I was preparing to go to bed. Instead I joined you and continued to cut fabric while being entertained by you. Thanks for the company. I had accomplished more having another passionate quilter that encouraged me to keep keeping on! It was good to hear you talk and hear your voice. What a neat idea having live cam. I was one who has the advertising interruptions - Oakley products surrounding the Olympics. It is interesting that some had advertising, some didn't and yet some had different products being advertised. Just a tidbit to share - I understand the need to keep costs down. Again, thanks for sharing yourself.
