it’s an action-packed evening here in Quiltville --
And let me tell you, you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve seen Bonnie running like a crazy woman to get last minute book orders out and pack for a cruise AND do Quilt-Cam at 9pm before leaving the next morning!
But all of my checklist is just about handled so we are ready to do this thing.
Besides, Quilt-Camming with you means I get an extra hour of piecing time into this run around day, and I will take any excuse that I can get to spend more time with the fabric and the machine.
But before we get sewing – we’ve got a special giveaway to draw for.
I am giving away one copy of the Nov/Dec 15 Quiltmaker Magazine issue that is just hitting news stands now – featuring my quilt Jingle Bell Square!
What a great issue! And you also get the 12 bonus blocks insert!
I’m also sweetening the pot with these interfacings:
Timtex heavy interfacing!
Fast 2 Fuse Interfacing –fusible on BOTH sides!
Fast 2 fuse interfacing-light!
Fast 2 Fuse interfacing-Heavy!
Fast 2 clean- Mini Microfiber Static Cling Cleaners!
If you like to make bags, purses, wallets, fiber art bowls, or any craft that needs a bit of body – these are great products! And even better, each of these interfacing craft packs comes WITH a free project included!
Let’s draw baby!
#58 out of 1197 entries!
I’ve sent Beth an email so I’ll be mailing her package off as soon as I hear back from her!
So what is Bonnie doing tonight during Quilt-Cam?
One hexie short of a rosette!
No, I’m not doing hexies tonight – not really. But I’ve had a WHOOPS – I’ve lost a quilt! I can’t for the life of me find my “A Little Bit Hexie” sample and I last saw it here when I returned from Tuscany, so I know it is around here but I can’t find it.
((No it wasn’t hiding where the fit bit was found under the printer stand.))
This just reiterates to me another reason why making BIG QUILTS is better than small ones. They are harder to lose!
I need this sample for when I leave for Peru at the end of the month, it’s our hands on travel workshop because we won’t have machines on top of Machu Pichu. So I’m in re-make mode.
I’ll finish the rosette on the plane to Florida tomorrow --
Tonight I’m making the background!
On the cruise I hope to get it appliqued to the background that I finish tonight…
I’ve cut matched pairs of quarter square triangles for hour glass units using the companion angle ruler. I’ve got my cornerstone squares and background cut. This is my plan!
You can find the free tutorial for making your OWN A Little Bit Hexie under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Sewing on Petula the Blue Wizard tonight!

And remember, if we get dropped by Hangouts on Air, I’ll need about 5 minutes to start another feed and embed THAT into this page as well, so if we are ever stopped..give me 5 minutes, and then refresh the page to see if I am back. If so, there will be two screens on the page and you’ll start watching the second one.
