Saturday Evening QuiltCam Time!

I'm still working on those (*&@#$(*& Nearly Completely Insane Zig Zag border units!

Do you have something to work on too? A binding? Some cutting out? Some straightening up of the cutting table and clearing of the ironing board so you can find it?

Why not come and join me!

I'll stop and scan the comments below and answer your questions as I go along. I can't answer them all, or I wouldn't get ANY sewing done, but I'll read them randomly and we'll have a really good time!

I'm going to leave the QuiltCam up for about an hour or so----

*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!

Wanna join me?

    Hi Bonnie
    Good to see you this evening.

    I'm wondering what size extension table did you purchase for use with your Featherweight machines? I know they come in a few different sizes.

    Happy Quilting

  38. Hi Bonnie -- I'm here working on my Just Take Two -- and believe it or not, I'm using only just two fabrics. Perhaps that's why I'm so far behind? After this last block, I'm going to put bindings on two quilts that I've been putting off. Thanks for letting us sew with you.

  39. I have been working on 6 memorial quilts from shirts.. Sewing rows together now. Yay! When you are using shirts how wide of a border do you use. I was thinking of making a thin shirt border before my final one. I have to keep all of the exactly the same...I have been in production mode from the beginning.

    Hi Bonnie,
    I am working on your string basket weave pattern. Mine aren't really strings as I had cut them into strips, but they are the small width strips (under 2 inches). I am not allowing myself to start a new "project" until I finish all the unfinished things (some going back further than the one you're working on! Like 1999) so this is perfect for times when I want to sew but don't want to get into more complicated stuff like figuring out how to finish a couple of those projects. Actually, it is kind of addicting and I don't want to stop!

  51. It's funny you named your new machine Doris. When I was a kid there was a local bakery that had one of those advertisemnts that just stick with you. A little girl makes a little boy a peanut butter & jelly sandwich with the bread and he says "What a good cook Doris". So it was one of those things we always would say after a great meal someone fixed us. My DH is from Texas and didn't know what the heck I was talking about the first time I said it to him. You just said "Doris is a good girl" so it reminded me of that commercial.

    I have been working on a "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" for 2 years or so. I think the last time I pulled it out was April. I have 45 blocks made....so only 95 to go! I also work on my "Grandmother's Flower Garden" when I am waiting at Dr. offices or other long waits. My Grandma started it in the 40s and I inherited the incomplete flowers when she passed. These are both WIPs and probably will be for some time!

    Hi Bonnie,

    Thanks for all the great tips. I see that you are using a cone of thread on a holder for your piecing. What type of thread do you like to piece with and are there any tips on how to keep tension good when using a large cone of thread on a holder. I've had trouble with that. Appreciate all you do to inspire us quilters.

  136. I went to get the laundry down off the line during the intermission. Don't you love the fresh laundry smell off the line in the summer?
    Now back to Orca Bay :-)

    Hi Bonnie, I finally am on with you. Last night someone mentioned that she watches you on Roku. If you can ask her for more information, I'd appreciate it. We have Roku but can't find USTREAM. I would love to sew along with you and see you on my 32" screen.

  140. Hi Bonnie,thanks so much for letting us sew along with you, such fun. I'm in Melbourne Australia and would really love to know which shop is going to host you when you come out here. I'm a big fan and would absolutely love to be able to do a class with you. Keep up the good work.

    "Hidden Chocolate" sounds like a good name for a new/future quilt ...

    Second evening I watched you on the quilt cam while I worked on my project. I am making 288 flying geese, so it has been nice to have someone to quilt along with me. Love your answers, comments, and great tips. Happy Anniversary and have a safe and wonderful trip in Bali. Will look forward to the quiltCam when you return.

    The 2 color quilts are more bearable if they are scrappy.
    Thanks for your time.

  148. Hi Bonnie,
    I am watching you from Brisbane, Australia, it is lunch time here. I can plug my pc into the tv using a HDMI cable, so I could watch you on that if my sewing machine was ear my tv. Don't need any intermediate gadgets, just the cable

  149. Gloria said: "You just gave some great advice on threads and using serger threads for binding and the reason why you use poly thread for your binding. It all makes sense to me!"

    I was able to watch for at least an hour, but that must have happened either before or after I was watching. So what's the tip? Why serger thread and polyester thread for binding? Inquiring minds want to know.

  150. Hi Bonnie,
    My 2nd night watching you and I really enjoyed myself, thank you. I did have a little bit of guilt when you said you would rather being sewing because you don't want to be snacking! I was doing just that! The first night, I did pull out my Singer Featherweight 221 - 1947 but it sounded so bad...I stopped because I didn't want to do any damage. I'm from Surrey, B.C. and in Lynden, Washington (about 2 hours away across the border) this coming Friday there is an all day class on how to upkeep/maintain Featherweights...I'm calling them on Monday to sign up. I love my Featherweight. Sew when you return and I'm watch you again, I hope to be sewing and not snacking!

  153. Just a quick mention for those pesky ads...I couldn't work out what you all were talking about cos I wasn't seeing any and then realised teenager had downloaded Adblock for me...works with youtube too...

  154. Aw - that was about 2am! Missed you again! The annoying thing being that I was awake as I couldn't sleep - it was too hot! I could have turned the computer on - although the OH might have objected as the computer desk is outside the bedroom door! :-)
