Quilt-Cam 2/9/2015!

Did you know that if you are NOT in my time zone you don’t have to get up at 4am to watch Quilt-Cam?  We have ARCHIVES!

Click the Quilt-Cam tab at the top of the blog – they are all linked there!

It is actually better to access and watch Quilt-Cam from the blog tab because the feed is embedded into the post telling you more about what I am working on, showing you photos of which machine I’m sewing with, and also gives you background story – like this photo I clipped from Facebook where Sigrid is showing how SHE loves the archives so she can sleep in past 3am!

She is also working on our Wild & Goosey block – a paper pieced block from my Addicted to Scraps column with Quiltmaker!  Click the Addicted to Scraps tab at the top of the blog and you can find the issue that this is in.

This little baby has taken our Quiltville’s Open Studio group on Facebook by storm..EVERYONE is doing them!  You too can join in because they use the ittiest of pieces!

Quiltmaker has even provided you the printable PDF foundations HERE!

As for me:

My Spider Web Layout!

All of my blocks are laid out on the living room floor – but I am still working on piecing the fill in units for this off set layout.  Isn’t it fun?

I used the String Spider Web pattern from the Free Patterns Tab, and offset half of the blocks which means I need half blocks on some of the ends.  Tomorrow I hope to sew them together.  I’m teaching this workshop in Alaska in May and now my students will have two layouts to choose from!

But tonight:


More Four-Patches-On-Point to contend with!

Our last  Quilt-Cam was just last week, and here we are again.  And would you believe I haven’t touched these since then?  These 4-patches are going on point with triangles I have cut for that purpose.  That is tonight’s mission!


These are my units for the American Patchwork & Quilting Quilt Along.  You can read more about it HERE.  Pick up a copy of the April 2015 issue, choose your pattern (Or a 4 patch pattern of your own if you so desire) And GO FOUR IT!

On your mark!  Get set!  Get stitching!

  1. It's 1.02pm Tuesday, 10th Feb on a hot day in Melbourne Oz. Works for me & all Aussies :) Thank you Bonnie

  2. Oh, boy. Quiltcam! Woo! Hoo! Love, love, love, the spider webs the way you offset them. Very dynamic. And, you are to blame for getting me involved in the four-patch frenzy. Bought the magazine, and once I get everything done for our upcoming quilt show, I'll be starting on the four patches.

  3. Good morning! It is 4am @ the bottom of Africa - lovely to meet you in cyberspace :)! Love all you do, though I think you have more than 24 hours in your day! Thank you for being so inspiring. Cala

  4. Love quilt cam. It's raining here in the Great Smoky Mountains of western north Carolina.
    Question for you
    If you could own just one vintage machine which would it be?

  5. What a great 31st birthday present. My first time to catch quilt cam live. I have to admit that I haven't been quilting in quite a while due to work and school I still love watching quilt cam! Thank you Bonnie for the great birthday present.

  9. Watching in East Texas, making my 4 patches . I bought the American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine and I am using 2" squares for my 4 patch block. Beautiful weather these past few days mid 70's. Texas has the light on for you, safe travels to San Antonio. Ana in East Texas

  10. Hi Bonnie, you said you found Mona a featherweight....what do you consider a good price? I bought one on eBay two weeks ago for $300. With case, and all the extra attachments....love all you do for us!

    Hugs from SOUTHEAST Minnesota !

    I'm like you...I love fabric lines,but I don't like to use them all together in one quilt. I love variety.

  24. Bonnie - I'm so excited to be able to tune in on my lunch break from work in Seoul, South Korea. No sewing going on as I'm eating leftover homemade eggdrop soup and some lunch meat/cheeses before running back to the office.

    Thanks for doing this!

  25. I'm finger pressing some flippy corners while I watch. I got the bonus triangles trimmed while I was waiting for QuiltCAM. Had to stop and make a Chocolate Pie for DH. I watched Ree Drumond make one for her DH on the Food Channel. YUMMY stuff! Thanks for doing QuiltCam on a MOnday night.
