Quilt-Cam 4/7/2015

This is Beatrice’s productive mess as she watches along as she is sewing!

Are you envious of her lovely 301? 

I get the biggest smiles when you send me photos of your sewing space, including me in your creative space!

I know this is an impromptu Quilt-Cam, the opportunity came along suddenly and I grabbed it, knowing that if you missed it, at least you’d be able to catch in in the archives under the Quilt-Cam tab at the top of the blog at your leisure.

It turns out that Mona was able to finish quilting her second quilt and was on her way home by 3pm or so.

After I returned from a post office run, and found myself home alone for the first time in I don’t know how long, and realizing that I’d be home alone tonight due to the Hubster having tennis league – I decided to be spontaneous!

Aren't you glad?

I am.  April/May/June are going to be insane months and I’m not sure when we will be able to next fit this in, and I’m missing sewing with you!

So what am I doing tonight?

The Lozenges are coming out to play:


Remember these?  They just need to be sewn together!

If you missed the Lozenge Leader & Ender challenge, check the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog for more info.  We started these last summer, and I want them DONE so we can start another challenge THIS summer.

What kind of fabric works well in these?  EVERYTHING!  I mean….even that “Where did this come from?” “What am I supposed to do with THIS?!” and “Holy Moly, that is weird!” kind of stuff works.  The sillier the better, the more fun it is to sew it up!

I think it would be great for this piece of fabric I received as a gift in the mail yesterday…hehehe:


Strong Men or Acrobats…in purple speedos with purple socks.  LOL!!

((Perfect lozenge material..only need 3.5” X 6.5”!))

You can use ANYTHING….if you are lucky, someone might send you a box like this:


Oh BOY!  This arrived yesterday…what fun!


Definitely some good lozenge candidates in here!

So this is where you will find me tonight….


1950s Singer 404..still haven’t switched out machines.  NO TIME!

Let’s sew!  Click the arrow on the screen to start the feed…and leave me a comment below!  I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Thanks for impromptu quilt cam! I'm excited to be able to catch the whole thing from Korea (it's Wednesday morning here!) while I'm still on sick leave from my shoulder surgery a while back.

    I'll be sewing down more bindings on the cross-stitched initial Christmas ornaments...and if I get bored with that I'll work on my English Paper Piecing project.

    Thanks so much!

  2. Yay for quiltcam!!! I am yet another box of sewing stuff that came home from my grandmothers. Ever heard or seen an Oster steam wand...Very 70's LOL

  3. I was wondering if you have been able to try out the stiletto that I gifted you in Oklahoma. Loved the lecture and getting to share my quilts with you.

  6. Yea, I have time to watch some QuiltCam before my Lacey Lacers Mtg tonight. I spent the day in my Quilt Zone. Had fun watchign my Facebook Feed with Mona's Progress. Be safe traveling tomorrow! Love using the Vintage fabrics, too. Teaching a Kid's Class tomorrow at the LQS! Excited.

  7. I've noticed a ruler you take with you, it appears to be oh, 2 1/2 by 6 1/2. Wondering where you found it. Tonight I am working on :/ seam ripping tonight. Enjoying Quilt-Cam.

  8. Love the Smith Mountain quilt. Can't wait to start mine in Soldotna.


  9. Hi Bonnie, I'm on vacation in Mexico. I couldn't manage without a sewing project so I cut out a bunch of Drunkards Path blocks with my Accuquilt Go and brought them with me to sew by hand. I've never made a quilt entirely by hand. Maybe this will be the one.
    And, I'm so happy to have register for your Jacks class In June at the Vermont Quilt Show!

  10. Hi Bonnie! Sitting here watching with Rosalyn (she turned 1 yr. on March 4th) She keeps waving hi to the screen, she thinks it's Skype! Thanks for all you do. Mallorie in Indiana

  11. Thank you for Quiltcam! It's fun to see you sewing on a 404! I just purchased a 1960 404 from a thrift shop for $24.99. I am so excited start sewing on her! Happy Sewing, Debi

  13. Hi Bonnie. Thanks for Quilt Cam; it's so motivational! I have a question about recycling shirts - I have several wrinkle-resistant 100% cotton shirts (mens & womens). Do you have any experience using this type of fabric in your projects? Thanks! Linda

    My favorite size baby quilt is 45" x 60"!

    Vanessa in Central Oklahoma

  15. I always make my baby quilts at least 42" wide so that I can utilize the width of fabric for the backing. Still big enough to be a cuddler quilt as the child gets bigger.

  16. Enjoying Quiltcam from my daughter's house in the Texas Hill Country. I like to make baby quilts about 40x40 inches so that I don't have to piece the backing.

  17. Hey Bonnie, glad to see you back to yourself. Last time I saw you in Tampa you were sick. Want to thank you for the ice cream and the fabulous lecture. You were well worth the trip. Working on my Wild and Goosey blocks tonight have a few more to finish my setting I have planned. Doing regular gooses and neutral ones. Thanks for quilt cam tonight, sew much better with friends. Mona in Melbourne, FL

  18. Am enjoying your quilt cam tonight. Not sewing along, just watching and relaxing.
    I know you experienced snow while here in Maine...so sorry; but the weather says we are going to see 60's next week YIPPEE !!!!!

  19. We have a metal roof on our house which is a log cabin. I love it.

  20. Love watching your quilt cam! Don't know too many people who quilt yet-recently joined a guild and have only been sewing a couple years-so much more fun when its social!

  21. Love you Bonnie I learn so much from you thanks for grand illision I love itb

  22. Hi Bonnie! I did your grand illusion mystery quilt. Loved the process and learned so much. My dream is to attend one of your classes someday.

    I am loving that this quilt cam happened tonight. I am doing Blue Ridge Beauty but cut my pieces the wrong size...cut 2 1/2 instead of 2 inches. Needed it bigger anyway so am adjusting my HTC to match. Thanks for everything

  24. Love the way the lozenge quilt is turning out. I will need to add to my list to make.
    Oh, how I wish I had some of those scrap filled boxes show up at my house.
    Mona is a lucky lady to have one on one lessons with you Bonnie. She has done a great job.
    What is a good price for the 404 machine? I love the way yours sounds.

  25. Thanks for the Quiltcam, watching it on Wednesday morning. Can I say how much I like the quilt hanging behind you. I have not warmed to the circular setting, but that serpentine, its a cracker!!! It looks like rivulets. Smashing!!!

  26. was a day late, but watching now... just love the quilt cam.... and the lozenge pattern... what a lovely way to use up scraps

    It may be AOL, but just the last couple of weeks, your missives are 24 hours late in getting to me. Tonight at 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight time I got the Quilt Cam blog you put out at 6 p.m. PDT yesterday. I doubt you can do anything about it from your end, but just had to let you know. Generally, I get your morning and evening blogs in the same email message each day at 6 p.m. [PDT]. I can solve it by reminding myself to go straight to your web site rather than rely on an email message--just a habit I need to get into. Bonnie Fonoimoana, California

  30. This is the first Quilt-Cam, I have seen. Loved it. As a new quilter (not a Mona, she is awesome). Watching this, is going to help me with putting colors together. Will need to watch again and take notes. Thank you.


  31. i am short of words and i don't have much time to spend but i want to say some few words on how i got my ex-girlfriend back. i saw many testimonies on net on how dr.bmars@gmail.com helped many people to get their loved ones back. i emailed the email which i found there and told him that my ex left me because i don't have money that please dr helped me to get her back i really loved her to the extent that i can do without her beside me. so he gave me a form to fill which i did and also i sent the pictures of my ex and i to him, he get back to me that he need some items to cast the spell on me and it will cost me the sum of $180 dollars to get them, immediately a thought came to my mind that this is a fake spell caster and he want to take away my money after thinking this he told me that he is not trying to take away my money and also he is not fake, so that i should not think otherwise and if i really need my ex back that the choice is all my for me to take. i told him sir please i don't have any money at hand now and is there no any other way for him to helped me without those items, he told me that he can helped me and those items is what his gods will use to cast the love spell on me. then i told him that i will get back to him in three months time. he said to me that i should forget about the conservation which we just had that he is done and i should not come for help anymore that am not ready, and he told me that these items is needed before three days time. i cried but no one to help i sell out some of my property and also borrowed little from my friends and send the money to him to purchase the required items. he called me the next day and told me that he has done with my problem that my faith has set me free. i was imagine because there was no sign that my ex is coming back when i was about to call him back my ex arrived at my door step and go to her knees and ask for forgiveness that i should accept her back. now we are now engaged and thanks to dr.bmars for his marvelous work. email him on dr.bmars@gmail.com .............

  33. my name is violet my husband is jasper i have a word to all my viewers in the world After being in relationship with jasper for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{benedictsolutioncentre@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster DR benedict. So.
