Last night was a Quilt-Cam night via Facebook Live!
This morning is a re-cap to get it posted up here to the blog, and listed in the archives so you can enjoy it any time you want.
I adore seeing what you are up to while we sew together. We had hand quilters, machine piecers, appliquers and groups on retreat all joining in for some evening fun.
And no one seemed to mind my “Allergy Voice” Thanks to everything that is blooming here in North Carolina. Oh, how I adore the pink trees – but they don’t adore me!
This photo came in from Louise who writes:
Hi Bonnie,SEW MUCH FUN!
A group of us are sewing at Open Sew in Rhode Island.
Brenda just finished her magenta tri-recs from En Provence, Linda is making nine peaches and Sharon is webbing her log cabin quilt.
Mary is working on red sashing border strips for "Talkin' Turkey" using her black featherweight.
Love quilt cam!
See you in July in Bedford PA!
Jean and Jessica tuned in to say hi!
Hi BonnieI love these two Kansas Kwilters! They are both so fun to be around. I hope you have a wonderful retreat!
We're at Wichita guild retreat. Jessica only lives a mile from me!
(Why am I not on retreat?!?)
LeeAnne’s Leader & Ender Hourglass challenge!
What a gorgeous label!
Hi Bonnie, I'm almost finished with my Hour Glass Leader Ender quilt. Hand sewing the binding & label tonight.Can't wait to see what you have for us this year. Love Quilt cam!!!
Karen’s Garlic Knots are Growing!
Good morning Bonnie,Karen, these are so cute!
Watched my first quilt cam with you last night and enjoyed it very much.
I am making Garlic Knots. Never realized that I had so much pink in my stash. Enjoying the pattern and look forward to sending photos of the finished quilt.
Thank you for all the info (patterns, insight, commentary, etc) that you provide to us quilters. Makes us feel like family.
THIS is a MYSTERY!
I unearthed these in baggies under the longarm during a clean out this week. Nine patches in two varieties – 193 with indigo blue corners. A whole stack of scrappy shirt nine patches including some subcuts and strip sets. WHAT WAS I THINKING?! I don’t remember!
I think the blue ones were going to be “alternate blocks” for something – I must have had a plan? There are 193 of these! I have ZERO recollection. The scrappy ones may be left overs from the two Dancing Nine Patch quilts I made for my nephews when they were born.
They don’t work together. I do know they are two separate projects. Now I am on a mission to design something that will use them up.
But for Quilt-Cam? It’s these:
I’m getting this next round ready to go onto this:
My own Leader & Ender challenge is growing!
I’m hoping to have it to “couch size” by July. This one isn’t going to go bed size. But I sure love how it looks like spring!

This morning I am headed to see my surgeon about “The THING” that came back as malignant. I’ve had to console myself that even though it is a BAD THING, (basal cell) there is less of it on my face at this moment than there was BEFORE the biopsy, and I lived with it for at least a couple of years. We will get it taken care of ASAP.
From there, I’m headed up to the new cabin. We’ve got another weekend of settling in and moving stuff over from the old cabin coming up.
Originally, I was supposed to be meeting with the gas folks to hook up the two gas fireplaces, but as of yesterday afternoon they have now rescheduled to the 31st. I’m still going. There is still much to be done, and I might even get some sewing time in, so I’m packing a project.
I’m thinking of design walls, brighter white lighting, some rugs on the floor, quilts to hang –this is the part where “Setting up housekeeping” becomes fun.
In the Quilt-Cam episode above, I spoke of Mark Lipinski and his search for a kidney. I promised to leave a link for his blog. HERE it is. Please read it and spread the word. We need to help find him a new kidney. We’d like to keep him around a lot longer. This is serious. Please do what you can.
My thoughts and prayers are for those affected in the terrorist events in London yesterday. I love that beautiful city, and its inhabitants. Words fail me.
And through it all, we hold ourselves together by stitching on.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Tumbler quilt top shared by Diane during our Michigan workshops last week.
When I can't control the big things, I focus on the little things that make me happy! Little things that I CAN manage.
I am happy for 1/2 bar of 4 G from the upstairs bedroom at the cabin allowing me to send up another blog post tomorrow.
And to quilt on.
Have a terrific Wednesday, everyone!
