Quilt-Cam 6/2/2014

holly1
Welcome to Quilt-Cam!  The feed screen is at the bottom of this post, but first a bit of background:

This is Holly’s set up for Quilt-Cam!

Can you see that she is working on the Quilts of Valor Block Drive for Kevin the Quilter??

I’m still so tickled at the overwhelming response and what awesome quilts are being made with donated blocks from all over the globe.

Holly writes:

Hi Bonnie!
Thank you for Quiltcam tonight. I love the quilt you are working on.  I put aside the double wedding ring quilt I am working on to make QOV blocks for Kevin the Quilter.  Such a great project, so glad you shared it with us. Also got out my new-to-me Featherweight, it just seems like the right way to do this.
Thank you for all you do for us.
Holly in NY
Thanks for sharing Holly!

And I’m glad you’ve tuned in with me tonight…I’ve pulled out a long forgotten  ((as in BURIED)) UFO and I want to get going on it again.  And sometimes the thought of just what it is going to take, the mindless repetition, the hours of sewing, make it so much better to have you to sew along with.

A whole tote of String Spider Web parts!
((Go Hokies!!))

Some blocks sections just waiting for the trim-up.

Some blocks all ready done and de-papered!

Papers cut and kites glue-stick-basted on!

Yes, and Johnny Depp too!  This was a plastic place mat from the Dollar Store, and it has a gridded texture on the reverse side..great for making templates!  You can see my kit template all cut out and marked so I know what it is…

I’m going to be stringing along on these sections tonight.

Studio_June2014 009

My crumb drawer is overflowing and this is the perfect project to put these pieces to good use!

You can find the free pattern for String Spider Web under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog if you feel so encouraged to give this quilt a go along with me.  I’ll be working on it for the next several quilt-cams and would like to see it done. It’s going to be a newer, brighter class sample for when I teach this class in my travels.

Hi Bonnoe! Donna from Stratford CT here. Thought I would work on my Twin Sisters blocks yet again (it will get done before Setp, our birthday). But I struggle with trying to be scrappy. Since I am a Virgo I want everything orderly. Any tips?

Mary Ellen said...

Hi, Bonnie! I love those spider web blocks. But this evening I will be cutting out fabric for a workshop I will be taking later this week at one of the guilds I belong to. If I get finished before the end of QuiltCam, I will pull out my leaders and enders project - cheddar bow ties.

SubeeSews said...

love the new hair-do...and the Spiderweb quilt. Glad to see you back home.

Beth said...

Hi Bonnie..joining you again from my parents house in TX. I don't have a sewing machine here, so its a good time to get some hand applique done!I get homesick to sew, so I have to sew vicariously thru you! Lily in Ontario says hi too..Beth in AZ

Linda said...

Hi Bonnie, since taking your class at the Grand Hotel I'm all about scrap quilting now. thanks a bunch. linda

Gena in Dallas said...

Your spider web blocks are sew cute!! Although I am sewing along with Quilt-Cam tonight, it is nothing quilt related. I am doing some tailoring on 2 pair of men's trousers. Will use the payment for my "Bonnie Hunter Class Fund". Thanks for sharing your time with us tonight.

adebose said...

Annette from Dallas, here. My first time joining in. I need to pull out my spiderweb but working on a few blocks of paper piecing for my Civil War Diary tonight.

Kevin the Quilter said...

So pleased to join you Bonnie and everyone else for Quilt Cam tonight! I am happy to see your demo for the spider web blocks...that's on my bucket list! Thanks again to you Bonnie for your support of the block drive, and to everyone who has donated blocks! The drawing was held today! Now it's time to sew all of the 5,680 blocks into 189 quilts! What a perfect project for Quilt Cam!

Jen Dale said...

Good Morning Bonnie, this is my first 'live' QuiltCam since moving last month to our new home and I feel like I am finally back normal. The Spider block is a new block to me and I really appreciate your 'how to' explanations, you make them all seem so easy. I am still sewing along with my Pineapple Crazy blocks, and have 180 completed and 44 to go. (and still loving them)
Thanks for everything you do.
Jen in Perth Australia

Hi Bonnie...joining you from eastern NC. Received both your Leaders and Enders books in the mail today. I'm a new quilter and starting to build my scrap stash. Can't wait to make some of your beautiful patterns.

Brenda LaValle said...

Thank you so much Mrs. Bonnie for these live feeds.. It is actually my very first one. I have only been quilting for about a month now and am now working on dresden plates. I so enjoy you and your inspiration. Brenda in Hot Springs Arkansas

Mary Ellen said...

If you get a Samsung Galaxy, unless you have an unlimited data plan, do not - repeat - do not sign in with your google+ account. It will automatically download anything you have ever downloaded from google and suck up a lot of data. Mine did just that and used up an entire gigabyte of data in about 10 hours.

Janet Brown said...

Hi Bonnie!!! Tonight while watching you I am sewing the binding on a Q O A quilt that I will turn over next week. My guild is having a Q O V Quilt Show next month. After display all the quilts will be given away.

nanatee said...

Kathy MacKie said...

Good evening Bonnie from Kathy in sunny Victoria, BC.
My hubby Dale and I are going to make the trip to Portland next week just so I can attend the Northwest Quilters Guild meeting on Monday evening to listen to your lecture and view the trunk show. Unfortunately I won't be taking one of your classes but very excited nonetheless. Working on a Christmas quilt from 4 years ago so keeping busy while watching you, will it be done this year, well there's always hope right!

Mrs MomMegan Craftsalot said...

I bought the digital 'more leaders and enders' because I am in Canada. I love it. We went to our cottage and I left my sewing handwork on the table but I thankfully had packed my laptop. I enjoyed reading your new book on Kindle for PC. I made lots of notes and made plans. Thanks for all your patterns and for quilt cam. Megan

Mary said...

I just upgraded to the Galaxy S 5 I'm being frustrated right now with my gmail account that I have to sign in to download apps with. Glad you are headed to Oregon. You will be seeing some of my friends in your classes.

Shirlsu said...

Just a heads up.... Outlander has it's US premier scheduled on August 9 on Starz!!

Marj said...

It has been a long time since I have been home for quilt cam, but I have found a few minutes. I am loving your hair the shorter length looks good. Will be watching Lori's blog to see what you are working on during your Friends sew time. Have a very fun relaxing time.

Jo said...

Sheila Hixon said...

Bonnie I have 130 nine patches from last quilt cam. now what can i do with then

Cheri Dawn said...

I love that solid green fabric. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt. Too tired to sew tonight, so enjoyed a glass of wine while watching YOU sew! That machine is so quiet; what a lucky find. Have a safe trip to and from Oregon.

adebose said...

That was too much fun. Not as good as Bonnie live in a classroom but great for a booster. It definitely won't be my last. I'll try and find my spiderweb before next time.

Mary Auerswald said...

Bonnie,
So glad you have quilt cam on as you know i am addicted to sewing with you and reading the studio. Those gals just floored me about the comic cardboard covers! I want to know what do I do when I am heading on filling (yes filling) the 3rd 2.5 in strip bucket which are the big 30 gal totes! Fabric mountain has yet to have a dent in it. I have started changing out the buckets for the 3 drawer sterilite containers under the longarm. Love and Inspiration waiting Mary

Sandra Rocco said...

Hi Bonnie, I too gave up on iPhone and went to the dark side! I have a Galaxy Note 3. I just adore it. Yes it is a bit bigger, but the bigger screen makes up for it. Super. Love the spider webs. May be the next charity project for our guild.

Christine said...

Hi Bonnie, Love the green spider web strip quilt. I started one and my solid color is a blueish turquoise. Really loving your new hair style looks lovely on you.

Randy D. said...

Hurry up and get here already, would ya??? :-)

christine said...

Carol said...

Love the hair cut! Easy Breezy! Might. Try a spider web but not with arsnic green! Perhaps a lemon yellow or passion purple. Must go play in my fabric

Marcia Jensen said...

You have inspired me to get out a long-lost UFO - a pinwheel quilt pattern that I started with "tutti frutti" fabric! I think it will be SO cute when done, but it's been in my "UFO BIN" for at least five years! Feeling quilty-guilty!!!
