Quilt-Cam 11/17/14

It’s Quilt-Cam Time!

Yay!  I know it was short notice but we’ve got to get it in here when we can fit it in here…So here we are!

If you are catching this in the archives --- we welcome you too!  That’s what archives are for, right?

This photo is of Ria’s set up – she sent this photo showing her progress on HER Carolina Chain quilt….vintage Singer, and gorgeous quilts in the background.  The blue one has lovely hand quilting on it!

She writes:

Hi Bonnie,
Love to see you on Quiltcam again! I'm watching the archieved one from last evening (night for this grandma, who is babysitting today).
And look! I made my first Carolina Chain block and pictured it with my new phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5. Great!
This phone makes great pictures as well; love it!Love from the Netherlands, Ria.

As for MY Carolina Chain quilt…The quilting is finished and I just need to get the binding on!



The block pattern is from my Addicted to Scraps column with Quiltmaker Magazine!  You can check them all out by clicking the Addicted to Scraps tab at the top of the blog!


This is what I’m working on tonight!


I’m framing up the 9 patches!

I’ve got an idea for setting these that I want to try out.  So come sew with me!

    Hi Bonnie,

    So glad for Quilt Cam tonight
    I've just returned to Florida after being six months in New Brunswick, Canada.
    I chose to fire up my ADLER tonight and here you are on Quilt Cam, so I am sending you a picture.
    It's an ugly machine, but oh does it ever purr when you step on the pedal.

    I put a lot of oil on the machine when I left here in the spring and it is like I never left. What a beautiful machine.

    I am working on a miniature quilt for a silent auction. Greens, blues and sandy colour to go with the colours of the Florida life.

    Love you Bonnie,,, Can't wait for my class, Cathedral Stars, the end of February.


  16. I am making secret for Christmas. Sewing on some Seahawks and Frozen fabrics for the grandchildren gifts. Thanks for having QuiltCAM tonight.

  17. Hi Bonnie, thank you for quilt cam! Am enjoying sewing along with you tonight. Am also working on 9 patches.

  18. I am afraid of black and whites in mystery quilt I don't find catcher which u add to the washing and vinegar doesn't work many times with me either
    I know u don't like such a questions but any other color you suggest i will be happy

  19. We always make a wine gravy that is fabulous! Really simple, uses Mogan David Grape Concord wine..baste the turkey in it all day in the Nesco and then make gravy. Still on Weight Watchers--so we planned a hike for Thanksgiving morning--but I WILL be eating the gravy! :)

  20. My sister always hosts Thanksgiving, and my contribution is ALWAYS chicken-n-dumplings and a layer salad. I say make those creamed onions for your daddy! That's why I make chicken-n-dumplings for my dad, and layer salad for my mom! LOL

  21. i married into a large family, and since grandpa was living with us, all holidays were at my house. first thanksgiving we had more than 20 family and friends...and everything from scratch! i had been cooking for DAYS...and when dinner was over, and i was serving the pie...dad asks, "where's the fudge?"...omg! for thanksgiving???

  22. Almost 68 pounds, thanks Bonnie! :)

  24. We do pot stickers for TG. So far Bills ar the best I have tasted! I think it is the local sausage! I just finished cutting and kitting a quilt for a g together Dec. first. I love to cut, and kit, so I have a ton of UFOs sitting around! Need to get sewing! Have a safe and happy holiday!

  25. Love quiltcam. For TG have to have candied yams and fruit salad. So ready for TG!!

  26. Canadian fan here so I've already had my Thanks giving :) but It ould never be Thanks giving without Home made rice pudding .Mmmmm! definatly a family favorite .

  27. Hi Bonnie -
    Finishing up the top of a black and white Scrappy Trip for our exchange student as a Christmas gift. She wasn't here 2 days before she started petting my black and white fabric stash.

    I don't know how to post a picture, but I am using the workbox we bought at the quilt shop in Germany last thanksgiving for my cut sections!

  28. Love the mystery quilt this time of year.

  29. Was not able to watch live, but did watch on Utube. working on a two color mystery quilt for a gift while I wait for the mystery to start. I am by myself over the holidays, so I think it is a great time for a large project! thanks for everything you do - we love calling you the Conductor (of the crazy train)!!

  30. Couldn't catch you live as I am not 'connected' in my basement yet. Was finishing the quilting of a disappearing nine-patch. Just got my frame/quilting machine back up and running after it was in storage for over a year while we waited for a house to move into. The quilting withdrawals are a thing of the past -- finally. Felt so good to take the completed quilt off the frame tonight. Now to locate the container that has all my bindings stored in them.

  31. Good morning from the Netherlands to you! It's 7.10 overhere...and this "oma" is ready to have grandkids-time all day!
    Hsd to look twice at your blogpost this morning (wasn't quite awake yet' I think... ��).... to suddenly think: hey....that's my treadle-space...!!!! So funny!!
    Enjoy your trip tomorrow. Hope everything will be great and after that a super last holiday of this year!
    Love! (I'm still smiling....��)

  32. Seems the smileys don't work...

  33. Tues. Morn. I am trying to pull fabrics for the upcoming mystery quilt. I have been to 3 paint stores in my town (we don't have a Lowes) and none of their Valspar paint cards have any of the 4 that you listed. It was Valspar was'nt it? Can you help?Jackie Hubert

  34. Hi Bonnie, I just finished watching my first quilt cam! I did it Tuesday while I sewed on a bargello quilt for my Mom. It felt like I was sewing with a friend. Thanks for doing it, I will watch more on days I am sewing... I have been sewing like a mad woman so I can finish by the weekend and quilt it on my sisterinlaws long arm. I just loved into quilt ills on facebook last week too! I really enjoy everyone's posts!
