We just finished a round of Quilt-Cam on Facebook Live just a bit ago!
What a fun way to take some time out in the middle of a Sunday afternoon. Just loved it!
I would have loved it even more if I had remembered to charge the tablet up all the way so the battery wouldn’t run out so soon! LOL!
For those who didn’t understand why I couldn’t just charge it while filming, I’ve got an external webcam/mic attached and I’m using that to record so that the entire video is NOT in mirror image, which is what happens if I use the tablet camera to record. It’s technology, but there you have it. The mic is plugged into the charging jack, and therefore I can’t charge while recording.
What running Quilt-Cam on Facebook Live offers is the opportunity to interact with more folks via a very easy to use format, and to save the video and embed it here in the blog after the fact for those who don’t use facebook for whatever reason. The picture has been clear, and the audio in sync, and those who miss it are still able to catch it here on the blog where it will continue to be archived under the Quilt-Cam tab at the top of my blog.
Writing this post AFTER the fact means I can share some of the posts that came to me while we WERE live, such as this photo you see here!
Grammy Dwynn says that these are her LAST 40 of Clue #4 for our En Provence mystery – not that she is counting or anything!

Hi Bonnie,I love seeing what you are running under your needle!
I'm working on quilting this variable star quilt from midnight quilt show. It's a Christmas present for my niece I'm from Manassas, VA.
Thanks for all that you do for us!
Amy is getting ready to quilt!
I'm just ready to longarm this log cabin variation from your Addicted to Scraps column. This is the last of 5 I'm making in different colors and layouts for a set of quintuplets! I'm hoping to give them for Christmas, so the push is on!

Love watching Quilt Cam live...often don't get the chance from down under! Finished all 4 clues, waiting for next one.....just after 6am here ...thank you so much!
It was so much fun sewing along with you and knowing that all over the world, we were doing similar things, together!
I’m excited to finish these up!
You can find the link to the issue of Quiltmaker Magazine where Garlic Knots appeared as a block in my Addicted to Scraps column by clicking the Addicted to Scraps tab at the top of the blog. I’m shooting for 64 blocks which means I need another 30 or so more.
Back to the machine I go! Looking forward to all you have to share in tomorrow’s Mystery Monday Link-Up!
