4/6/13 Quilt-Cam Saturday!

I’m ready for a break, and I’m ready to sew!

I’ve spent the morning filling book orders and getting them to the post office by noon – and these were the blooming wonders I passed on my way to and from…GORGEOUS!  These were not blooming when I left for Nashville!

I got all the paper work and itinerary stuff done for my trip to Pennsylvania tomorrow ---

The quilts I need to take are all packed and ready to go ---

Now is time for me!

I'm sewing together the blocks into rows and the rows into the quilt center!

  2. No sashings on this one? I saw one of these Sister's Choice quilts in the slide show. Have fun finishing it. I ordered my Hand crank conversion set from Cindy, thanks for telling me about her. You scheduled this just right for me this afternoon. I have a Block Lotto Block to choose fabrics for quilt guild today.

    1. My other one did not have sashings either. I prefer this pattern with no sashings so the secondary design is visible.

  3. Hi Bonnie

    Nice to see you! I am visiting from Norway. Today I am working with the Quilty Barn Along, hosted by Lori Holt. I have finished my first barn; a nice red one with a 6" quilt block on the wall. Have a nice trip tomorrow!

  5. Hey, Bonnie, tuning in from Washington State and stitching with you today. I'm working on this sweet little quilt by Melissa at http://cornbreadandbeansquilting.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/parade-day-part-4/. Just in time for what I call "Flag Season." Thanks for having CAM today. Safe travels to you next week.

  6. Bonnie, the vibration from the sewing is making you 'vibrate'! I have a question about Lazy Sunday Morning. Can I substitute the pink for the purple? Made a bunch of purple and white four patches instead of pink and white.

  8. Hi Bonnie,
    Sewing bugle beads and seed beads by hand onto my daughters prom dress. We are up cycling her old dress from last year by adding ocean blues and lime greens to her current black and white dress. Dog ears on the floor is just decoration! Thank you for quilt cam!

  11. Thank you, Bonnie, for showing me how to "web"....I'm especially thankful that QuiltCam can bewitched over, over, and over again!!! I'm a slow learner! Stripping everything out of my studio so I can organize.....both a tornado and hurricane (of my own making) have ripped through here and I can barely move!!! Loving our time together ... You in NC and me in NW Arkansas! Safe travels.

  21. Hi Bonnie, I just joined you and can not figure out what in the world you are doing. I have never seen a quilt put together using the method you are, please explain. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE quilt cam and your blog. I was at a quilt show yesterday and was talking to a vendor who had toy sewing machines and told her about your post on them earlier this week. She said she also follows your blog and couldn't wait to go home and view your post.

  22. Hi,Bonnie! Glad to see you on Quilt Cam today! Thanks for that! I am sewing together the long strips of a lawn chair quilt you shared with us from the Moda site. I am making it for my Mom who just finished 2 weeks of radiation and will be starting chemo soon. I'll back it with flannel as she's always cold. It's going together very quickly. Thanks for all you do and happy travels tomorrow.

  23. Hi Bonnie

  24. Hi Bonnie, I'm enjoying watching you sew blocks together without pinning. I've learned that I can match seams better by "feel" than by using pins. Here's a quilting saying for you, "Quilters live pieceful lives." Happy sewing!

  25. Hi Bonnie! So glad quilt cam is on. Today I'm just watching. Had the third chemo yesterday (diagnosed with breast cancer last January) and watching you helps me forget the discomfort. Hopefully will get more energy in a couple of days to get started with easy street. Saved all the directions, have two different sets of fabrics, now will have to decide wich one to work with. Thank you for all you do and for being an inspiration. Safe travels :)

  28. Hi from Linda in Ohio. I was at your workshop in Ashtabula, I had the noisy machine! I had it fixed and found I had wore out a part.
    I really enjoy sewing with you on quilt cam. Am working on my leaders and enders that have gotten to bigger projects. I finished Jared takes a wife, and now working on pineaple blossoms, Arkansas Crossroads, one of my own design, and the bonus squares from Pineapple Blossom. Just love going scrappy.

  32. Nice to see your shout out to Limbania! She is a great gal and is in our Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild. We are working on a surprise comfort quilt for her and I made a pink Talkin' Turkey block for it. I am guessing she isn't re-reading through these comments after the fact so I can tell you :)
