4-17-13 Quilt Cam! Doing the 9-Patch Shuffle!

I have had 2 baby quilts hanging over my head for, well several months now.

My Sister Mary, and my Sister-in-law Anna are both due with baby boys within a week of each other in July.

Auntie Bonnie needs to get BUSY!!

I’ve been thinking and thinking and thinking…..but nothing was inspiring me.  Until I opened a basket today and there they were…..a WHOLE bunch of leader/ender 9 patches made with recycled plaids and stripes.

What could I do with these?

How about setting them “Domino” style so they bob and weave over the quilt top??

I can dig this!

And I think the soft baby blue star print adds just the right “BABY” touch.

Pieces & parts are ready to sew during tonight’s quilt cam!

Yay!! so glad for QuiltCam tonight. I was tired and a bit uninspired but this is just the nudge I needed. I'm piecing a border for a collaborative quilt my FaceBook quilting buddies and I are making for the Sandy Hook Elementary children. 26 angels to watch over them while they are healing

Mary Ellen said...

Also working on a baby quilt tonight! Glad to have you back, if only for one quilt cam.

Joen Perkins said...

Happy to see you again. I am setting with feet up..lol sorry.. I don't seem to be able to sew at night. But I always get something out of your Quilt Cam. thanks

Pam Kellebrew said...

Pam and Jerry are watching you from Houston! I meant to be cutting out some stuff for orders but I'm tired and don't want to miss what you are doing.

pwl said...

I used that exact blue fabric in a log cabin baby quilt I made for my former boss. I love your setting - it's similar to one I saw somewhere on a blog using 4 patches. One day I'll actually finish my version of it. :-)

Gena in Dallas said...

I'm not sewing along with you tonight, but I am addressing envelopes for mailing some swap blocks I just finished making. The quilt(s) behind you are gorgeous!! Congrats on the new nephews.

Yay for quilt cam! Thank you so much Bonnie for all you do. I am right now hand quilting one of the two Easy Street quilts I made. One in you color selection and another in all Batiks with pink, brown, green and gold which I absolutely love! Will send pics when I am done.

PS I hope to be able to attend one of your classes real soon!

Mary said...

I'm making two PINK quilts this year for new Grand-daughters. Using your Sister's Choice for one of them. Are you going to show us your finished Sister's Choice quilt on QuiltCam??

Glad to see quilt-cam up and running. Nice shelf! What a good husband! Hello from Delaware! Mary- Stitchinggrandma

Mary said...

Thank you for quiltcam. Just the pick-me-up I needed. Working on another crayon box for yet another co-worker's soon to be baby. Mini baby boom going on here

afmom63 said...

Watching here in Indiana, just had injection on lower back, so not sewing tonight....

Lorraine said...

I read your post for quilt-cam while in Walmart. Hubster was excited, shopping trip got cut short and his wallet was healthier. So glad you had a chance to inspire us with quilt cam.

c said...

nice shelf for sure, my first time seeing your wonderful Quilt cam-thanks

Hi Bonnie, Jamestown Landing was full in two minutes at Qullt Odyssey. I was lucky enough to get in but then everything froze. I was so upset but then somehow I managed to get them to take my payment. Looking forward to seeing you then.

TroyJennene said...

I like to attend the Hersey show (Quilt Odyssey) every year that you mention, love the teachers & all the fun that goes with that show. The market place is really fun & hard on my purse most years! hope you have fun in Hershey.

Stephanie said...

Quilting my 98" X 98" Easy Street tonight on my DSM. It will be a wedding present.
I love the hexie quilt- wish I could be there for the Winston-Salem gathering :-)

barefootT said...

Working on a baby quilt here too :)

A baby doll baby quilt. My 2nd grand daughter will be born May 16th. Giving the big sister a baby doll, bed, and quilt. The baby doll quilt is made from same fabrics as the new big girl, bigger bed quilt.

Helen McNaught said...

Hi Bonnie! I'm sitting at an outdoor coffee nook, enjoying my coffee and watching you!!! Hubby is reading the newspaper:-) How great to be sitting out here AND watching you too!

Sherri said...

Thomas and I are watching! Just bought my new Quiltmaker mag can't wait to start on the Wild & Goosey-that will be my next UFO!!!! lOL!!

Jackie said...

Im Jackie from Michigan. I am in Cheasning MI with 12 of my quilt frineds at Creative Passions retreat. We are sewing with you.

curlygirl17 said...

This is my first time live with you on Quiltcam! Love the archived videos, but this is SO much better! I have been ironing a backing for a Quilt of Valor that I will be loading on the midarm, and prewashing some batiks. Now I'll de-bone some shirts while you sew...this is great fun! Have a great time in New Hampshire!

I loved your neutral tutorial on quiltcam. It was so helpful. How do you choose fabrics for your main color? In talkin' turkey you used reds -- and in Jamestown Landing you used blues -- how do you decide which fabrics will read red or blue even though they have other colors in the fabric? Maybe you could show us some examples in a quiltcam session when you have time...


Cynthia Pierce said...

Wowza, that is a great pattern idea!! LOVE IT! What a great way to use those 9 patches - for baby quilts!
Cindy in NY

Suzanne Lamb said...

OK .. so now we can add "speed ironer" and "speed presser" to your resume, Bonnie. I'm impressed and exhausted all at once!

sewingBeverly said...

A quick question - why do you not "set the seams" before you press them open?

Deborah DeBerry said...

I have asked before but if you don't have scraps and strips, only fat quarters, how should I go about making scraps? I have finished piecing my Easy Street-my first completed top-except for the borders. I couldn't have done it without you. You are truly a great inspiration for everyone, especially me. Thank you!!!!

sally said...

Bonnie, I think something has happened and the picture is going dark. My computer seems to be working fine in all ways, but all of a sudden while watching quilt cam, your "show" has gotten very dark. can still see you, but its very dim. Is it just me or could something be wrong with the camera?? Sally

afmom63 said...

Just don't let the other people that spent like Quiltcam as u have more who do.

Looking forward to meeting you in Ireland in June
