Sunday Evening QuiltCam!

Another evening spent 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?

    1. I love mine. I bought glasstop stove cleaner at Lowe's that works really well!
      I bought two kinds-one was a thick liquid that you put on and let it soak. Then there's a spray you can use for quick clean ups. I also use a single sided razor blade when I burn things on it.

I wish I could sew but I've just moved to Tampa and the place is so small that I have to set up, sew and then put everything away. Sometimes its not worth it!! I love sitting here working and visiting with you!! Have fun in Bali!

  20. I blame Andee (and you in a round-about way) for what I'm working on. "Hawaii Sunset 1845" units; 600 flying geese units (1.75"x3"). Both Andee and I admit that we probably would NEVER have attempted this quilt had we not finished off a couple of your mysteries!

    So, I feel a little "Bonnie-like" tonight.... the same fabrics for 36 blocks at a time...

    Good sunday nite to you. I just purchased a Singer 185K. I love the stitch it makes but it is lound and sound a little bit clunky. How does your 185 sew? I wonder it the more I use it the quiter it will sew.

    Hi yes, Helen here again in NZ, yes we are coming to the end of winter. And yes, in 2016 you can come and stay with me in Wellington and visit my quilt guild. The flight is only 3 1/2 hours from Sydney or Brisbane or Melbourne. Where will you be in Australia? That would be awesome. It is Monday at 12.30 and I am home sick so sneaking on the webcam to watch you. I am a new quilter so i am learning lots from you. Thanks so much.

    Andrea in Canada here. Just finished my 20th square for the basket-weave strings! Also have come up with an idea to finish that 12 year old project. You laughed last night when I said I wasn't going to start anything new until everything is caught up - just wanted you to know I have finished sixteen things so far this year! (Okay, ten were wall hanging or table toppers, but still they are done!) Two more are waiting til Tuesday so I can layer them on a big table at church, and I waited at LEAST six months to start the basket weaves, and I only started that because there was nothing left to just sit and sew on. Once I plan out the rest of the 12 year old stars I will use the basket weave as leader-enders.

  135. I'm shopping at MaryJo's at the moment also. Going to get some of the Prairie Cloth Tangerine. Thanks for the tip. And now will also look for something else to order also, while listening to you. really enjoying the quilt cam!

  136. Hi Bonnie... For those who wanted you to set a schedule so they would know when you are"live". Instead , since that is beyond possible, tell them to become a Facebook fan of Wuiltville, and set their preferences to all, and then when you post they will get it in their FB feed. Easy Peasy, and no extra work for YOU!

    Bonnie, I teach classes using the AccuQuilt Go! I also own the Studio and can use many of the Go! dies with it. My favorite dies are the 2 1/2 and 2 inch strips, the 3 inch finished HSTs - no waste here, and I love the Triangle in a square - the Tri-Recs tool. On smaller scraps I love using the 2" multiple die. Any waste I get I put in my crumb bins and it eventually gets used. Yesterday I did a demo using the Go! at a LQS and met Valerie from Phoenix - I was cutting my HST units and 2" squares for Blue Ridge Beauty. What fun!

    1. Sue, I wondered if that was you, then you mentioned meeting me. How did you remember--there were so many people. I mentioned to Bonnie yesterday that I stopped for the demo and you asked if I knew of Bonnie Hunter, and we had a lot of fun talking about Quilt Cam! Hi, again. (Darn I missed quilt cam tonight--sounds like I missed some good info, too.)

  141. Show me again how you press your pink and green. Couldn't you just press both seams of the unit UP or DOWN and then just alternate the blocks? Aren't they the same unit - just one upside down?

  142. Thanks so much for repeating the Prairie Quilts Tangerine for me!! Mary Jo's....AMAZING!!!

    I commented on fb that I didn't think I'd be able to see you tonight cuz I was working. I got off about 6:30 pdt and turned you on on my smart phone! So I listened to you on my way home. Just got home and turned off the smart phone and now have you on my laptop! Loving it! But I missed the answers to the questions about the items behind the sewing machine! The FAQ sounds like a good idea! You are such a sport! Love you!

    LOVE CHAOS!!! Story of my life! (Luckily I am not a mom or a wife, but that's beside the point!)

    Because of Eleanor Burns I'm pretty fastidious about setting seams. Do you set yours?

    Hi Bonnie
    Do you have several of your beautiful quilts scattered around the house on beds, walls etc? Do you change them at the different seasons?
    By The Way I love you lighting in your room. No shadows
    Have a great evening I'm enjoying listening and watching and learning

  151. When pressing these units, have you tried one of the smaller craft irons rather than a standard sized one?

    From Di in TN: I'm so fortunate - my Longarmer presses quilts before she quilts them; even though I do press before giving them to her. And she always comments how nice and flat/even my quilts are - all done on handcranks and treadles, of course. :) I do quilt my own small quilts on my treadle, though.

    Bonnie, My sewing group does string blocks using a fabric foundation rather paper. Do you see any problem using them in your patterns in String Fling which I have ordered. Thanks, Rita in Missouri

    Hi again,

  163. I find that it is easy and definitely not boring to sew while listening to you....Do you find that it is the same with you? That is, sewing and talking to us helps with the boredom...

    If so, you are welcome,,,come into my sewing room anytime....

  164. what kind of iron do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  165. Anonymous10:51 PM EDT

    I love a heavy iron, too. However, after shoulder problems I've come to appreciate a small travel iron when working with smaller blocks as they are often repetitive and small. I don't use my larger iron until the blocks are much larger. My large iron is the lightest one I could find at Target when I was hurting so much that sewing was truly a pain--so glad that isn't true any more! Ann in Virginia

    Bonnie, I'm noticing that you are having a touch of struggle everytime you pick up a pair of units to sew together. Try this. Put the piles on the tray in the orientation that you will sew them. Only have to get it right once. Then they will all come out the same. No stopping to think.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Love this! With the little kids, I can't get out to a sewing group. This way I get someone to quilt with. :-)

  173. Got alot done while listening/watching your quily am session. Plus learned a lo. I'll save time now since you said usually no need to set seams & just to iron the seam... Time saver & i had suspected that my blocks were getting a bit wonkier with the whole piece pressing. Thanks! Bon Voyage & traveling mercies!

  174. Thanks for doing the live video! It's so fun to listen to you talk as you sew! I'm cutting out a twister wall hanging. It's a Christmas tree. Have you ever done any twister quilts? It's so much fun!

  175. Well, the three hour time difference in Las Vegas doesn't work well for catching the QuiltCam very often - only once so far. Maybe when you do the post, could you post the time that you start? Just an idea. I loved watching the other night when I did catch you on!

  176. Hi! Cathy from Surrey BC, arrived home late tonight from a birthday party and it sounds like I missed another great QuiltCam. My loss for sure! I would love to have seen your stash system and more of your sewing room. I did stop snacking...and I made a small mug rug for the birthday girl, had lots of help from my feline friend, she needs to be there every step on the process but won't let me hold her longer than 5 seconds! Her brother finds a nice comfy chair and sleeps!
    I will be moving my sewing machine closer to my computer upon your return! Sounds like lots of quilters are motivated! And it was you who did it! Thank you for all you do - when it is when you want/can do it!
