It was a Quilt-Cam evening last night via Facebook Live!
And now it is the “morning after” and I’m just getting around to getting this post written so I can embed the video into the post.
By the time we were done last night, I just didn’t have it in me to write a night time post, and I figured that everyone else would have likely gone off to other things.
So I told myself “It’s okay! You can post it in the morning.”
And who knows, that might be the way we do it from now on. Because bedtime happens!
And it was a typical Monday with so many whammies thrown in during Quilt-Cam including blindly going on sewing pieces cut from the wrong colors together….merrily. LOL!
And this lead to an impromptu cutting demo as I cut new pieces for the 5 Straits of Mackinac centers that had gone missing somewhere between here and Texas.
And we had a great time together!
Dyann was hand quilting while we sewed together!
I'm hand quilting while watching Quilt Cam from Gilbert, Arizona, it is the first time I have caught you live....LOVE IT! Thank you so much!
This was fun for me as my brother Mark and his family live in Gilbert, and yesterday was Mark’s birthday.
Gwen’s kitty Wheaton watching my demo! LOL!
Hi Bonnie,What a crack up!!

This was Jackie’s view while we sewed!
The view from my balcony in Barbados working on wild n Goosey blocks!
Barbados! WOW! Doesn’t it look lovely with the water in the distance?
We quilt wherever we can – BECAUSE we can!
Pam is working on her H blocks from H is for Happy, P is for Pinwheel!
I love seeing all these great scraps in such happy H blocks! Whoowhooo!
Hi Bonnie, working on my H Quilt hope to have it finished when I see you in Kentucky in June! I have had so much fun making this one.
My set up before getting started.
Black Betty is fired up and ready to go – so quietly since I was able to FINALLY get the tensioner on her the way I needed it. I replaced the whole she-bang, her tension disks had some corrosion that was causing bad tension and when the thread would catch those spots the thread would break – maddening! She’s now sewing like a dream, and is Ugly Betty no more. Black Betty, bam-a-lam! (Don’t click it unless you were a child of the 70s hard rock!)
Sample seam test!
I love the Bonus Buddy that comes with the Essential Triangle Tool. I use it to set my seam allowance, and then after sewing my test seam, I can measure my units to be sure I’m where I need to be. Stitched 2 2-1/2” squares together and pressed: 4 1/2’’ on the nose! Let's sew!
And we got this far!
You’ll find the cutting demo for both of the rulers used in this square in a square unit in the Quilt-Cam video below:

Today is a dermatologist day. I’m getting that “Other Thing” on my forehead checked out. I want it gone.
Being a child of the 60s, 70s and partly into the 80s and growing up in San Jose, California meant that we were at the beach as often as we could be. And back in those days there WAS no such thing as sunscreen. In fact, I remember slathering on the baby oil so we could nearly flash fry in the sun to get our California tans. It’s been many years, but it is now coming back to haunt me.
Both my mom and my dad have had skin “THINGS” removed, and I guess I’m next up in line.
And I bet anything, as well as wearing an apron, you’ll soon find me wearing a hat to keep the sun off my face wherever we go.
Maybe a Sunbonnet Sue one? I'll end up looking like Holly Hobbie. Oh, dear.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage 9 patch quilt found in North Carolina.
We have a choice on what we choose to bring into our future. Some baggage can be left behind. I've been thinking about this as we pack up to move.
10 more days!
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
