Quilt-Cam 12/28/2013

wonkywishes 004
Here we go again – New programs, new web cams, new frustrations, but we will learn it one way or another!

This webcam is a LOWER end one, so hopefully it will be LESS technical and allow the camera to focus on ALL of the screen, not just the item closest to the screen, blurring out what is in the background..namely..ME!

We can hope...can't we?  

I'm working on Wonky Wishes blocks made from Maverick Stars!

Today I've got out the Electrohygiene machine...I felt in the need for green!

And I just made a silly rhyme :)

Let's see if we can get this going shall we?

Ooops!  Laptop unplugged!  Give me 5 minutes and I"ll start another feed!

Hi Bonnie!
I am a Norwegian quilter on vacation in the US. Celtic Solstice is with me!
Love your quiltcams.

Cindy A. said...

Hi Bonnie, how did you know I have 100 projects going? HaHa. Not quite that many but I like your idea of taking inventory and narrowing that down and prioritizing what I will finish. Happy New Year!

Elissa Yost said...

Women after my own heart... I never have more than a couple projects going on. I would go NUTS if I had 114!!!

Anita said...

Working with Part 5 units. Wonderfully scrappy!

Margaret said...

Hi Bonnie and Happy New Year from my 'sewdio' in frosty Central Alberta. Outside my window the cedar wax-wings are having a party with the berries on my Mountain Ash and ornamental fruit trees. Indoors, I'm working on an art piece for the 2014 Studio Art Quilt Associates' Trunk Show. Love watching you work while I work. :-)

Brigitte said...

Hi Bonnie, wishing all the BEST for 2014 - you are my inspiration!

Working on Celtic Solstice. I'll bet there are a lot of us out there

Cindy Bacon said...

Hi Bonnie, Thank you SEW much for the idea of the storage containers for all of our little itty bitty scraps. This block is just perfect for those also. Cindy from eagle Creek, Oregon

Quilter Kathy said...

So happy to be sewing along with you in Ontario Canada today Bonnie!
I am cutting my pieces for step #5 of the mystery.
It has been SOOOOO much fun so far!
Love your maverick blocks...might need to start some of these with my scraps:)

Amy said...

Yes! I have company in my sewing room now {{Harry Potter can only be my buddy for so long}}
Kids are outside enjoying the heatwave up here in Wisconsin; DH is working... and I've been in my sewing room since 6AM (7 hours ago).
I have been back-sewing clues 1-4 to GO KING on CS (new bed being delivered on Jan. 7th).... and I dare say I will be 100% up-to-date by the end of my sewing day.

Julianne said...

Happy Saturday Bonnie! Yipee ! Quilt Cam! Sitting here with you today sewing Arkansas Crossings blocks on my favorite Singer 301A...Happy New Year!

Nancy-Rose said...

Hi Bonnie!

It's Nancy in Guelph (yes, you pronounce it right!). I'm putting the last seam in this week's Celtic Solstice blocks.

I also do inventory every year end - - this year I sent two quilt tops to my sister to finish (she likes to hand quilt - hates to piece), donated three tops to a quilt guild for their charity projects, and donated another five to my old quilting group to finish for chemo quilts for a local hospital.

I'm a terrible finisher! :)

Marly Rylaars said...

Hi Bonnie
This is my first time watching live! I'm working on my split triangles and have done about 20 this evening so far.
Best wishes for 2014.

Jacqueline said...

Am working on a Crabapple Hill pattern called "Over the Woods". I am doing the embroidery while watching this cam.

Happy New Year

Cousin Jill said...

Hi Bonnie..... I'm helping my daughter with her college homework and listening to quilt cam. She gave a funny look at first but knows how much I enjoy your patterns.... She got my Tumalo Trail (loves it). Still trying to catch up on mystery quilt steps and loving it!!

Kelly said...

I am cutting squares for a baby quilt to use as a leader/ender. My goal for the year - finish everything I start!

TLC said...

Working on: BORING BINDING
Goal for 2014: NO NEW FABRIC! ROTFL That resolution never makes it to the end of the year. So I'm putting it out there for everyone to witness.

Judy Brennan said...

Hi, Bonnie. I'm working on a quilt by Darlene Zimmerman called Cotton Candy. I have found through the years it is called many names. It is simple and relatively fast. Decided at my Book Club meeting in December (there are 4 of us) I wanted to make them quilts for next Christmas. Made one on Christmas night. This is second one. Goal is to have them ready for the quilter by next Wed. YEA!

Marie Eastwood said...

I am working on your Star Gazing pattern from your Shirttails books that my daughter got me for Christmas. I will try and send a picture later....I can't figure out how to add a picture to this. Have a great trip to Texas!! My goal this year is to finish more quilts that have been started in years passed! Marie from Florida!

Shanon Yawkey said...

I'm working on CS parts 4 and 5 while my daughter paints on canvases she received for Xmas. Glad to have you join us for our crafting afternoon. Shanon and Nicole from Ohio

KrisR said...

Swinging my kettlebells and doing Turkish Get Up's here in Australia this morning while watching you work. Goals - yes.....New Years Resolutions - nope. I read somewhere yesterday that only about 8% of New Years Resolutions are ever successful. Enjoying Celtic Solstice and hoping to finish the cutting of clue 5 today.

Judy D in WA said...

I decided today is the day I tackle a big bin of scraps. Out came the portable ironing board, iron and Go! cutter. Soon I'll have all kinds of new strips to add to the collections.

Martha Patterson said...

I just received a screen that says we will be right back.

Liz said...

Hi Bonnie. With the holidays, I couldn't start the mystery until this week. I'm cutting out lots and lots of blue pieces for step 1 and saw on fb about quilt cam. What a nice surprise to get to sew with you....or at least I'll cut, you sew. :o) Thank you for this mystery and all you do for quilters. Happy New Year!

wendy bradley said...

Hi Bonnie , you went off the air here. Wishing you a wonderful 2014 . Been working on my CS but behind so much. Hoping to take some time and get caught up in the new year. Going to Ottawa to stay with my son for 2 weeks. Thanks for doing everything you do. Wendy Bradley Alliston Ontario Canada

Elizabeth said...

Hi Bonnie, listening to quilt cam while cleaning the house. Accuquilt dies ordered to help me with Celtic Solstice and some of the colors/fabric chosen. Hopefully once the new year has begun I can start cutting and sewing. Elizabeth from Lubbock, Texas.

Vickie Blose said...

Had to findh curtains for a friend. Then 3 snow men for my sister before I could s tary the mystery

Tammy said...

Hi Bonnie. Thanks for having Quiltcam today! I'm cutting my pieces for a new quilt called Galaxy by Cozy Quilt Designs. It uses 2 1/2" strips and is real scrappy. With the new cam, your smiling face is coming through nice and "clear" and audio is excellent! Back to cutting! Tammy in Washington State

Julianne said...

I've lost your feed.....

Michelle said...

I have you playing on my iPad while I'm working on the Longarm. I'm all caught up with the mystery steps! Will you be doing a garage sale linky party any time soon? I need to unload some excess projects. LoL

Tracey said...

Hi, Bonnie!! No complaints on feed or quality here. Seriously appreciated your continued devotion and effort to Quilt Cam with/for us! :)) I pulled out an old UFO for Charm Packs in French provincial colors and am quite happy to be sewing along with you. Excited to see the progress of others on Celtic Soltice, although I have refrained from starting this year, since I have yet to finish my Easy Street... done in spring colors, so with any luck will grace the bed this year! Enjoy your trip to TX! Tracey

Judy said...

Wish I hadn't tuned in, just reorganized my quilting room and threw away some scraps. Now I know I need to fish them out of the trash, you shame me into it. Ready to start a new quilt, double spinwheels.

miss jamee said...

hi bonnie and fellow quilt cammies! today i am working on a quilt i am making my big brother for xmas...using 144 six inch crumb block, alternating a lovely sage green kona...set on point of course! no border planned, looking for a vintage look! thanks for the inspiration! cant figure out how to include the pic!

ajsgramie said...

I'm working on Sister's Choice blocks for quilts for my 2 sisiters. I decided on Christmas that they need to be made the beginning of 2014. I managed to finish all of my UFO's in 2013 except one. The one is a Dear Jane. I have 100 blocks made so far. My goal for 2014 is to have that finished.

Betty said...

I am working on CS mystery. I just stared on Christmas afternoon while hubby was napping. I have a few of each clue done now, enjoying the process!

Julimond said...

Funny to see you sewing live, while i am knitting socks. My first time to watch your LiveCam.
Thanks for it.

Vic in NH said...

Hiya Bonnie!
Thank you so much for the wonderful mystery, Celtic Solstice! I have been able to do a few of each Step to stay current and finished 8 units of Step 5 this morning. Best part is that they measure in at 3 1/2", the correct size, WHOOHOO!

Cheryl said...

Hi Bonnie! I love having you join me in my sewing room. 2014 will be my year of finishing projects! I'm quilting a bowtie quilt right now. Thanks for the encouragement!!

Mary said...

I'm still trying to get to see you! Getting error feed message on computer and can't see you on my phone, :( Missing you!! Home alone with no Bonnie on QuiltCAM today makes a sad quilter.

Sharon Hudson said...

Hi Bonnie so great to see you . I am Sharon from Ind. and I am working on a string blocks using all my great scraps. Love watching you.

Karen Kluwin said...

Hi Bonnie, just got home from IKEA....finally got a little lamp like yours!!! It was on my Christmas list. Now I have to get into my sewing room. Thanks for quilt cam. Always enjoy either sewing with you or just vegging and getting inspiration.

Rocky Mountain Cattle Dog Rescue said...

today is clean the quilt room day and get organized. TOMORROW I sew!! I have a queen size quilt to finish for niece getting married the end of 2014, need to start a baby quilt for a co-worker. That's it so far for 2014

Brown Dirt Cottage said...

Ooops! I nearly forgot and missed you today!!!
I have been wondering WHY you haven't been featured on The Quilt Show????
Do they just have C & T Published authors on there, seems that may be the case.
I think it would be M-A-R-V-E-L-O-U-S to see you on their show. But as Si says on Duck Dynasty….Hey! Jack!……we get to see you on Quilt Cam often….so that makes us Happy Happy Happy!!!!
Today I'm working on a border to go around a Scrappy Mountain Majesty. I L-O-V-E this pattern!!!!!!!

rea said...

Hi Bonnie,
I am absolutely loving this year's mystery quilt and I am in no hurry for it to be over with. It's something I look forward to do in between projects. I agree that everyone should have a string, crumb and other type of projects on hand. I like utilizing all these bonuses since I hate to throw things out. Thanks for everything and happy new years!!! Rea of Upstate NY

Jeannette said...

Hi Bonnie,
Thanks so much for the afternoon quilt cam - I usually have to catch you in "reruns". Today I am trying to catch up on Celtic Solstice. Happy travels and New Yesr! Jeannette FOMIB (friend of Mary in Boston)

Joobee said...

Enjoying a bit of warmer weather here in Illinois. I am working on my first one block wonder quilt. Really liking it!

Frugal Queen said...

Hi Bonnie _ I'm watching you from Cornwall in the UK - I'm working on a Bricks and Stepping stones quilt for my friend's daughter - such a lovely pattern

Myrna said...

Hi Bonnie, I'm enjoying Quilt Cam today. I've been working on Celtic Solstice, have completed enough of all steps to keep up as new clues come out. This is my first Bonnie mystery quilt and I'm learning a lot. Thanks for your inspiration and instruction!

Myrna in KY

Laura said...

Hi Bonnie. I am busy in Northern California working on my CS mystery quilt. This is my first time with your mystery and loving it. I will also be working on another mystety on New Years Day

Susie Jensen said...

Bonnie, on the feed today, I wasn't able to see the actual sewing surface and about half of what you were doing. I think maybe the camera was just a tad high. Thanks

Quilter Kathy said...

So fun! Thank you Bonnie for hanging in there and trying new technology for us to enjoy QuiltCam even more!

christineschoon said...

Hi Bonnie,

I'm really enjoying quiltcam tonight!! I'm sewing hexies in front of the computer.
Love from the Netherlands!
Christine

Jill the Quilter said...

Stitching a binding on with you in our vacation condo while the girls are off skiing. Happy day!

Gaye Thorn said...

Sorry Bonnie, but this webcam was more blurry for me...thanks for the New Year idea on resolving to whittle down ufo's. Really, I do not even count. Maybe that would be a good resolution also, haha.

Anonymous said...

I just finished a baby quilt. I am currently working on a lap quilt I began about 8 years ago in a class. The pattern is "Sugar Snaps". I cut WAY too many squares so my goal for next year is to make some lap quilts or other items with my multitude of squares. :) PS I was born and spent the first 18 years of my life in Eastern NC. :)

Angie said...

Hi Bonnie, but this Webcam is blurry. I've tried both my iPad and my iMac desktop. You were clearer on the other webcam.

Jean C. said...

So sorry about technical difficulties...just wondering why also that now when I make your feed go to full screen it won't go? No worries... just wondering. Hang in there. It's just nice to hear your voice and listen/watch as I do my own sewing. Thanks for all you do.

pharmgirl75 said...

I just finished watching Quilt Cam today, and I think I like the old camera better. I miss seeing what you are working on and your lovely old machines! Hopefully, you can find a happy medium where you are in focus and we can see your work.

Connie said...

I don't have 114 projects but have several more than usual. And it's all your fault - LOL! It started with a class in West Monroe (Rectangle Wrangle) and then SQUIRREL! Pineapple Crazy in String Fling. Then SQUIRREL! I had to get started on Wild and Goosey. SQUIRREL! Signed up for classes at Quilt Fest so I've been cutting for them and then one more SQUIRREL - Celtic Solstice. I just want to do them all!
