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?

where did you get the real neat light you have bending over your machine??

By the way, you went over 400 last night before I signed off!!

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

Coloradolady said...

Yes! I saw those directions and plan to try it!!! I love that block!!!

I am working on finished UFO's....I still have not finished Roll...Roll.....but plan to get that one at least finished before the new quilt along starts!

I need to be working on some of those UFO's...but enjoy this video time just as much!!

Oh, Brenda...that is a good question!

If you look on your appliances, they may be dual voltage themselves. Most do these days. If they have dual voltages listed, all you need are the adaptors. Good luck and have fun!

My husband has arthritis in his hands and when I started taking cherry juice for my gout he started using it too and has gotten more mobility and less pain in his hands. This might help. Tart Cherry juice or the tablets may help.

Brenda R said...

Yes I have Osteoarthritis the Dr said to limit myself when I do hand quilt and use something like a tv tray or small table to use as support and also to do
Hand/finger stretches before and after and wear the hand supports the brown elastic ones
Hope this helps it does for me

knitnoid said...

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.

Angela said...

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.

Maree St Clair said...

Music is great! Sound level great! I sew with my iPod on shuffle as well! Similar mix on mine!

I used your leader/ender approach and finished some blocks from one project while making a birthday quilt for my granddaughter. Thanks for the suggestion! How can I share the picture of the blocks with you? I tagged you on my FB, not sure if that works.

Hi Bonnie! I'm working on a string quilt tonight for my DS. That pile of strings has to end someplace!! Love the blog and the quilt cam!! Take care!!

Anonymous said...

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!

mtquilter said...

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.

YankeeQuilter said...

Hey Bonnie...if you can work on this border than I can certainly work on my husband blue and white quilt! Working on the boring...I mean repetitive border now...Sio

Amy said...

Hey, Bonnie, are you still working on your 9 patches? I'm wondering how you are going to put them together.

Have a GREAT time in Bali!

DH is gone playing golf, and this is the first chance I've had to tune in. Perfect ending to a day spent quilting with my guild friends!

Did you try to match the colors of your Nearly Insane quilt with the original or make your own choices? Your quilt is gorgeous!

Good evening again Bonnie. It's great meeting here like this. I am continuing to work on my "My Blue Heaven" that we started in Wellsboro, PA. If we keep meeting, I am sure it will get done. Gonna miss our evening meetings while you are in Bali!

Cathy44647 said...

Good evening - I'm working on a couple of blocks from an existing project - then it's time to put the sashing on my "Jared Takes A Wife" from your Ashtabula, Ohio class - working with you here on line is a big motivator to get this queen sized quilt DONE!!!! When do you leave for Bali? and when will you be back to motivate us again!!! lol!

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!

Love the quiltcam!

Hi Bonnie,
Would you please answer a pressing question? When you press a small 4 patch square do you press the seam once before you open the patch to press the seam to one side?
Thank you,

P.S. I took the pumpkin pies from last night to a birthday party this afternoon. I came home with empty pie plates!

Hi Bonnie:
How do you kep from getting sooo tired of using the same scraps until they are "done"? I am so tired of mine and yet can't even think about restocking till I use more of what I've gathered. Hard to work in "a new coloring" with so much to get used up.

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.

Donna T said...

I made a jelly roll quilt with scraps. I cut it as I was cutting for the in Hershey this July. They were not the same length. But with the Jelly Roll, you cut off the first 18 or so inches to make them more random..

Terri in BC said...

Speaking of adding variety to scraps, my local quilt shop has a couple of old laundry baskets filled with fat 1/8's cut from sale items, bolt ends, etc. at 50c-99c each. It was great for my Orca Bay quilt.

Enjoying sewing with you..am putting strips for a Christmas tree skirt. My Featherweight is close to a twin of yours...slight variation of the design, but so cool! Got it about a year ago, all gunked up with inner grease, kinda like enough grease to cook a couple of eggs...cleaned it up, took it to a local retired Singer mechanic and it has been going strong.

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.

Cathy said...

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!
