Quilt Cam Time! Let's Sew!

Let's Sew!

I'm working on some 9 patch strip sets -- and I'm determined to do it by treadle.

If it gets too hard, I'll switch to another electric machine, but I really want to try!

This pic was sent in by a crazy group of Canadian quilters who shared their Cathedral stars quilts, and included ME on QuiltCam in their pic!  How fun ---





Are you ready to sew? Bring a project, come hang out!

Leave a comment below while watching along -- I'll try to answer your questions and comments if you leave one!

Stephen said...

Thanks so much for scheduling this at an easier time for the UK - I HAVE stayed up until 2am to watch you a couple of times, as I'm a night-owl, but that does tend to write-off the next day until noon! Looking forward to your holiday mystery very much - have made the last two and really enjoyed them. Thank you for being such a generous teacher.

Watching you work on your treadle makes want to make room in my house to bring my treadle home from my brother's.

Thanks for hosting another great quilt cam. I am loading Smith Mountain onto my quilt frame as I watch.

Danijela-Jelena Medved said...

Hallo Bonnie, so great that we have a chance sewing with you today!! I dusted my old Singer, I think this old lady is from 1908 and I think it's about time to make her work again. Thank you for the inspiration. Will send you a picture of the result...if we both ladies get so far this evening! Happy sewing and treadling,

Hi Bonnie. Thank you so much for doing this at a time I can take part from England! I am just waiting for the second episode of the new series of Downton Abbey to start, and you are filling the time in nicely. It is great to see you "in the flesh". I love your blog and check it out several times a day.

Kelly said...

Hi, Bonnie. I'm with you on the football games! A little bit goes a long way. I am standing at the kitchen counter cutting out triangles for Smith Mountain Morning. Why didn't I think of this sooner? I was using the kitchen table for cutting...you'd think after 4 months of physical therapy for a stiff neck I would have thought of this! My kitchen counter is taller than anything else in the house. It's working great! Now I can't wait to start sewing.

Hi Bonnie,
Just wanted to tell you that yesterday I went a guild quilt show in Athens, PA and there were 2 quilts made with your patterns. 1 was scrappy houses and the other was spider web strings. Both mentioned your website. sandi1100

Hi Bonnie, Always enjoy Quilt Cam, instead of telling you what I'm doing thought I would tell you that hubby is rebuilding the motor on a little GE Sew Handy from the 30's about the size of a featherweight It is green I WANT it but it belongs to a customer. He repairs vintage machines.

Marsha said...

Bonnie, my hubby bought a treadle for me a couple years ago and seeing you with yours made me want to search mine out. It's a 1901 Singer but I have no clue how to clean it and the parts and with what. Found the bobbin case and it looks like a bullet. Thanks for the quilt cam. Marsha from Indiana

Love watching you run that treadle. I wasn't able to watch the other day when you were paper piecing. I've read comments about what a great tip you gave about using pins to match points (or something like that). Will you please post about that hint. I looked through some of your posted paper piecing patterns to see if I could find it, but so far I haven't. Please help. I hate to miss a great hint. Thank you.

Hi Bonnie, DH is wondering where the microphone is since we can't see it on the feed. The sound is very clear. Thanks for showing your sewing space during quilt cam. It has caused me to sort and clean up my sewing space a bit. Stitching a binding today while watching you. Great to do this on a Sunday afternoon. Louise in Rhode Island

Hi Bonnie, Joyce from Maryland. Love your quilt cam! I have a treadle sewing machine but I have not used it. It is just sitting in my bedroom. I think I will get it out this winter and see if it actually works. It was found in my parents attic in 1957.

I was working on string blocks to swap with friends (we're swapping ANY 3.5" blocks), but my family was watching the old Mission Impossible TV shows on Netflix in there, so I came in to work on cleaning off the table mess from working on applique (also for those 3.5" blocks). They LOVE that I enjoy quiltcam SO much.~

Another vote for the kitchen counter. My new house has an island with an end I have commandeered for cutting. AND now that I got a GO cutter last weekend, a lot more cutting is getting done! Woo Hoo!

Hi Bonnie,
Pat from Maine here. I met you this summer with my friends Regan and Suzanne. Truly enjoyed our dinner with you at Mimmo's.Preparing the binding for two quilts while catching your cam on my Nook. No computer in my sewing room - small screen - but I can listen. Where there's a will there's a way. Always pick up great tips from you. Keep up the great work. You are an inspiration!

The Thimblemouse of Country Crossroads said...

Hi Bonnie...after vacation in a couple weeks, I will have my grandfather's old Singer treadle looked at and hopefully get it back in working order. I will also get my Mom's old Pink Singer serviced...it's the machine I learned to sew on. Thanks for inspiring me to get back to my 'roots' - I yearn to get reacquainted my vintage machines, you've made me fall in love with them again.

It's me again, I feel the same way about meeting you as you do about meeting Harriet Hargrave! I'm so excited! I have learned so much from you. I am in Cumberland Gap, TN and will also be on my way to Lexington tomorrow! So fun to sew along with you.

Bonnie, you mentioned typing in something, like "South Boston" in the upper left of your blog page to find a certain post. You've mentioned that before, but I don't find a search box anywhere on your blog. I must have misunderstood something. Can you help me out--clear this up? Thank you.

Hi Bonnie, Sue from Charleston here. DH and I just hung 2 wall hangings today that were waiting to be hung rather then hidden away. They make the rooms look so colorful. Why did we wait so long?!?!

Great to catch up with you at last! I'm English but live in Normandy in France! Today I've been working on my "Scrappy Irish Chain" as a Leaders and Enders quilt - while working on a baby quilt at the same time! I hope you will have "European time" regularly - it's 8.40 pm here! You have just the voice I imagined you would have...

I purchased some Indigos from Sandy at COTTON IN THE CABIN years ago... I need to dig them out! She and her husband import them from South Africa. The process is fascinating, like those lovely batiks.
Happy Sewing!

Wantagelass said...

Sorry to confuse you Bonnie - my username is a bit silly. I live in a small town called Wantage (near Oxford) in England, so I am known as Wantage Lass. King Alfred the Great was born here in 890 (ish) A.D. so it is a very old town! Downton Abbey itself is Highclere Castle, 13 miles south of here and Downton village is a place called Bampton, only 10 miles north of here - so the places filmed are very local to me. Enjoy the series -I do so enjoy a wedding, and Shirley Maclaine is absolutely fantastic.

Aileen from Fl again. I lost my Bonnnie Bouns Triangle temple. I want to make another. Was it from a business card? What was the demension.

LizA. said...

Hi Bonnie--thanks for making a tedious job less tedious. I'm trying to clean, sort and pack all non-essential things in my sewing room so that we can put the house on the market. Watching you is much more entertaining than the audio books I usually listen to. I think I want a treadle machine now--only I don't think I'm coordinated enough to operate it.

I didn't think I'd ever admit this, but I seriously think I might have too much fabric....is that possible?

P.S. exactly what is considered non-essential in a sewing room?

Hi Bonnie
This is the second quilt-cam that I've been able to watch.
I have a question about a FeatherWeight.
A local singer service center is moving across the country. They have a FeatherWeight for $350.00. I would really like one but am not sure if that is a good deal. It comes with as many feet would fit it, has the manual, and is in great shape. Is this a good price? I'm in Canada too.
Thanks

You keep it as real as life can be, I love it! no would like to see me sewing and what I wear that is for sure.
I love how you distribute your fabrics all over you and the table and the quilts that hang in your room for incentive...you just made me laugh with your crumb bin..back to dinner thanks a zillion for being you

Hi Bonnie, I love it that you are sewing on the treadle. I learned to sew on one and actually made most of my clothes on one for several years until we could afford an electric portable Kenmore. Wish I had that old treadle now.

Hello from beautiful sunny, St. Louis! Sewing a six year old UFO with you today. Boy, have my piecing skills improved since then. Watched Muva's videos and learned what that odd looking attachment was - a seam guide for my Featherweight. Also ordered tangerine Prairie cloth and will be making a Cheddar bow tie leader/ender quilt when the fabric arrives!No more wasting thread and time for me.

Bonnie, Love to see the treadle sewing I remember sewing all of my clothes on my great grandmother's treadle when in highschool in the '50's. Sewed my prom dress on the treade; 30 yards of organdy! Had lots of darts in the skirt; couldn't backstitch so I had to hand tie off. Thanks for all that you do!

Hey, Bonnie!!! So nice to see you in the middle of the day! I'm lucky enough to live in the States, however, since I'm normally up in the middle of the night, I'm VERY thankful to see some daylight sewing! I am amazed and befuddled at the folks that feel the need to comment on your slight wardrobe "malfunctions"!!!! I would hate to think that you would discontinue quiltcam for a few unrealistic peeps. Keep on doing what you do, and know that there are MANY of us that are happy to have your live company. As for dinner, it's a pot roast in the crock pot with veggies too. Gotta love one dish dinners.

Hi Bonnie, watching you use the treadle machine reminds me of how I learned to sew on my mom's old treadle machine when I was a teenager. She bought it used when she and my dad married. I inherited it and, when I checked the serial number, I learned that it dates back to the 1890's! I hope to pass it down to my granddaughter some day. Happy sewing!

Hello Bonnie!

Great to catch you on Cam time, does the treadle make your back ache? I wanted to ask - I'm planning a quilt top that will use alot of white, but I heard a quilter say white will always over-balance a top if you use too much of it. What do you think?
Thanks,

So nice to be able to catch you on the web cam for once.
I'm in South Africa, so the time difference is usually a hassle. Most excited to also see that you are working on what looks like some South African indigo schwe-schwe fabrics.
Can't wait to try out my treadle machine in November.
Have to head of to bed soon, but was great to see you sewing away.

Bonnie,
I found a template to go with the Creative Memories 3/4" side punch for anyone who likes cutting the hexie fabric out with a template. I've found Brandy's Hexagon template #313 3/4" to be quite helpful, especially when I want to use scraps. I used Elmer's glue to put sandpaper on the bottom, so it'd not slip.

Why don't you see if you can take that drawer in front out and also the curved vanity panel underneath...I bet it's just a few screws or a bit of glue holding those in place. I am tall too and can see how that would be a bit uncomfortable for you.

Oops! I'm abroad for almost another year...typo! And you read my first comment (with the typo!) out loud! Oh my! I was trying to decide between "for almost another year" and "for another eight months" and somehow it got mixed up in my head! Oh me.

Maybe next time I'll tune in and be sewing - if my shoulder eases up (it's hard to rotary cut if your left shoulder is having issues!). Here's to knocking out the 12 baby quilts for 12 babies born from two months ago through March. Ugg.

Thank you again, and sorry for my silly typo!

I like cotton thread for cotton piecing. I'm using a lot of Superior thread -- I have it on cones from my longarm, but if I had my druthers and could purchase all the thread I want, I'd go for aurifil. I want to use up what I have first tho!

Bonnie K Hunter said...

Now that I know it is two words, not one, it makes more sense! Nice to meet you!

LOL!!! I hope she remembers me, I bought a "spool" cabinet made from a treadle machine cover at the Vermont Quilt Festival! I've been buying from them for years, and I always find SOMETHING awesome in their booth that no one else has!

I have the accuquilt studio.

Sandra Henderson said...

Of COURSE She remembers you!!!~ She is sooooo sweet. I just HAD to call her and let her know that you were sewing with Indigos. I did not KNOW that they were from her, but I suspected as much. You will have to show us your cabinet one day Bonnie. I made one of her dolls from the porcelian head, arms and legs. Then, the clothes, using her fabric line. Sweet, sweet lady.
Thanks for all you do for so many BOnnie. Enjoy the rest of your day. XO

Hi, Bonnie. I use Firefox. I turned off AdBlockPlus for your site thinking that might be hiding the search box, but nope, I still don't see it. HOWEVER, I did load Windows Explorer and I can see the search box there. So it is some setting on my part that prevents me from seeing the search box. I'll have to keep checking my various add-ons... Thanks.

Hello Bonnie, I'm new on your blog. I have a featherweight machine, and the standard foot is very narrow, not 1/4" measure. Do you mark your machine to get the 1/4" seam line, or do you just sew with the narrower seam allowance. I'm just starting to use it for quilting, used to use it for clothing a long time ago, when we used 5/8" s.a.
Just wondering, and I really enjoy your daily newsletter that I receive.

Hi Bonnie,
I was excited that you said ahead of time when you would do your next live cam. (That time didn't actually work for me) I was wondering if you can do that more often? I know you are crazy busy. I am in China and I seem to always miss when they might be. We are 12 hours different from North Carolina. I used to live in Florence, SC you came to the Swamp Fox guild several years ago where we met. Thanks for an amazing blog. Keep it up. Ramona
