Quilt –Cam, the embedded version!
We just finished a really fun Quilt-Cam session via Facebook Live, and here I am with the recap and the video embedding so those who couldn’t be with us can easily catch it too!
I’ve also found it fun to share some of the things that have been shared with me during Quilt-Cam so you can see what everyone else has been up to as well.
The first thing I wanted to do was show you a bit about my set up at the machine. I’ve added text to this photo. This is especially for those who “don’t get it” on why I can’t charge the tablet while streaming.
If I were to do a front facing video from just the tablet alone, with no external camera, EVERYTHING would be in mirror image. The whole video would be backwards. It would look as if I were sewing at a left handed sewing machine. Just WEIRD! If my shirt said anything, it also would be backwards.
The alternative and solution to that is my external camera. You can see it balanced on top of the laptop. The cord is plugged into the white adapter that has a micro end that fits the charging port in the tablet. It’s this charging port that also runs the external camera.
Do you see now why I can’t charge AND use the camera at the same time? Hopefully this helps. And it isn’t a problem, as long as I remember to CHARGE THE TABLET before Quilt-Cam starts.
And we were good to go!
Celeste’s mini En Provence!
Can you believe this is only 36” X 36”??
This one belongs to Mac!
Hello from Savannah, GA!My jaw dropped. This is beyond stunning. What folks are doing with this design just blows me away! AWESOME!
I'm Mac, my mom- Kristy- and I are both avid quilters and LOVE keeping up with you, your projects, and your stories! This year was my third mystery observing my mother and my first participation. She applied your colors and went scrappy, I went all solid and bold, but kept the same units. It was such a joy and of course brought us even closer. Thank you for the joy you share with all of us!
This beauty is from Yevette in Australia!
So happy to catch you on Quiltcam today, it is our Australia Day so it’s a day off! I haven’t managed to catch you live for over a year so it’s extra special.
I spent the early morning down the beach then back to watch you! No sewing at the moment, I have to go and get a quilt from my longarmer later this morning and there will be binding today!
Thank you so much for the En Provence mystery, it is a beautiful design and every single cone I have seen looks gorgeous. The hallmark of a great design (IMHO) is that it looks great in any colourway! I chose to make two. I have finished one top in a gelato colourway with pinks instead of purples.
Quilt number 2!
And I am half way through making a dark colourway to go on my bed, to match colours in a killim on my bedroom floor. I love the effect the grey directional fabric gives to this one!
Thank you for everything, I still hope to take one of your courses or meet you in person one day.
There were so many great photo-shares and stories. I just love that you come to spend this time with me in my studio and we get to sew together.
Kind regards from Australia
I haven’t made it through all the emails yet, it will take some time and we are at bedtime now here in North Carolina, I’ll be answering more emails tomorrow morning.
My evening started HERE.
The blue string bucket is over-flowing and I need 84 string blocks for a border on the Dawn’s Early Light quilt. 84!! I’m not sure it will make a dent in this mess, but I’m going to give it my best try.
These are the border units I’m shooting for.
Did I mention there are 84!?
And through it all I have to laugh because Irene and I are sharing some kind of alternate universe.
At first glimpse I thought this was my machine, my tablet.
But that is NOT my design wall, nor my strips in the machine!
This is Irene’s view from where SHE is sewing! HAHAHA!
Are you ready for Quilt-Cam? Here you go:
It was a terrific evening, and I’m going to bed a happy girl.
Have a lovely evening, everyone!
