And while you are there, I hope you’ll do a search for episode #1410!

It’s MY episode!


We had a great time during our taping day in San Antonio.
2014 seems like SO long ago! And then, only yesterday.


I hope you’ll like my episode.


Have a marvelous Quilting Weekend, everyone!

As this goes live, we are on our way to West Jefferson, NC to close on Quilt Villa, VA!  This dream is finally coming true – I can scarcely believe it.

I won’t have internet at the new place until late Monday, possibly Tuesday.  Phone connection is also very iffy up there, so if you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t worry about it, just keep watching those free episodes and go QUILT SOMETHING!


Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Vintage Wheel of Fortune quilt shared by a student in Grand Haven, MI this week.

It might be comfortable within our own comfort zones – but we’ve got to push a bit if we want to grow!

Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone!

  1. Thanks for the chance to win! Good luck with your closing and the moving in! I know you are looking forward to some time in the quiet of the mountains, and Sadie will enjoy having new trails to explore. Don't worry about us and internet! You deserve some time alone with the hubster....

  2. How exciting to be closing on your new Quilt Villa. I'm so happy for you. Looking forward to hearing all the new adventures in the new place. Thank you for all you do for the quilting community.

  3. Bonnie, have a great week end and time away from the net. You deserve it. so excited for you and your family on this new venture. I hope it is everything you want and dreamed of. Take care of you. Hugs

  4. Congratulations on the closing!!!

  5. Thinking of you today, Bonnie, as you close on Quilt Villa VA.

    Am I the only one having trouble registering for the big drawing? I got messages saying that the website for Step 2 couldn't be found and since I tried more than once to register, I'm pretty sure I'll be eliminated for trying to register more than once.

  6. Thanks Bonnie but step2 didn't work. Congrats on your new quilt villa!

  7. I had the same issue with step 2. I hope you enjoy every moment of being in Quilt Villa, VA. I would be positively giddy and I bet you are too! Congratulations to you, the hubster, and all your loved ones who will benefit from your efforts.....that also includes us, your loyal fans and followers. ��

  8. Have fun up at the new Quilt Villa Bonnie! I LOVE watching "The Quilt Show" and previous "Quilt Cam" episodes when I am in my sewing room. Both have kept me company many many days!

  9. I missed pictures of quilt villa, where can I find?,

  10. Step 2 doesn't work, and says page can't be found.
    Bonnie, I'm so happy for your new home, and hope you will enjoy it. (celiaambrose@hotmail.com)

  11. Entered......at least my name & email. Step 2 doesn't work, so I figure my chances are nil.
    Enjoy that new cabin!

  12. Yes, I tried twice but step 2 wouldn't work. Well, I tried!

  13. What an fantastic prize package! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  14. Bonnie - Step 2 is very sick!

  15. Bonnie - Step 2 is very sick!

  16. Good Luck on the closing and on your first nights in your new Quiltville!! Very excited and happy for you and Hubby!!
    And Step 2 is still broken....

  17. No success with step 2

    Happy Cabin Day!

  18. Congratulations on closing to make Quilt Villa VA a reality. You deserve every happiness for you and your family. You have given so much to all of us. Since step 2 isn't working are we still entered in the drawing?

  19. I'm entered...it took a couple dozen tries to chose a "name" that hadn't been chosen before, but I finally was accepted. It seems to be a very busy site & that could account for problems entering the contest. I was lucky to chose a time frame that was able to accept my entry. Keep trying...kind of like attempts to get those corners matched....keep trying.

  20. Bonnie, I'm so excited about the new cabin! Congratulations!

    For those having problems with "STEP 2", try going to your internet settings and temporarily remove the POP UP blocker. Once I did this, the link worked.

  21. Congrats on the new cabin! So excited for you:)

  22. I entered...Thank you for the opportunity...

  23. Love your prize basket best. Hope I win it🤞. Good luck on the closing on Quilt Villa VA. Take lots of pix to share in your blog once you get back home & internet! We just listed our house & hope to get a 5th Wheel to live in & move between our kids & other family.

  24. I was able to get step 2 to work, but it was incredibly slow. The site must be experiencing a lot of traffic! Good luck on closing and best wishes on your new home away from home!

  25. Very excited for the closing on your QuiltVilla Virginia! I waited out Step 2 -- went and checked email and came back. Lots of traffic I imagine on The Quilt Show site today -- exercising my patience muscle!! Enjoy being techno free for a bit. Hugs, Allison in Plano Texas USA

  26. Good Luck today, Bonnie!
    This quote is so true. A Few years ago, I said I was never going to do Paper Piecing, now I do and Love it! I also never thought I would do Machine embroidery, as I do hand embroidery (Since I was 8 ), now I do, and Love it. I have learned so much in the quilting world in the last 7 years, and I keep growing with each project I do.

    Happy sewing and watching videos this weekend, everyone.

    Thank You. Bonnie!

  29. I just finished watching the *1410* edition - what a great video :)

  30. Thanks for the reminder about the weekend. I'd forgotten with life getting in the way.
    But, I couldn't see any of the shows when I clicked the link

  31. Wow, what an exciting weekend for you - whether or not you have any time for quilting on International Quilting Day. Hope this new adventure is one of the best yet.

    Thank you for the link to the TQS and your continued generosity. All of the info, free patterns (my latest mystery is finally coming together!) and your wonderful basket donated to the prizes.

    Hope the weather cooperates for you as you move!

    Peace and Joy,

  32. Loved watching your episode on the quilt show. I love scrappy quilts and you make them seem so easy. Thank you.

  33. Thanks for the opportunity. I loved your show, and have a better sense of where to start getting my scraps controlled. Thank You!

  34. Thank for the chance to win those awesome prizes. Good Luck on the closing, and the move. I lost internet for days when my router decided to die, and at first I hated it, I felt like something was missing but I got use to it, and was actually shocked at how productive I was without interruptions. I think you are going to love it once you get use to it. I do have one question I entered the give away but then when I click on step 2 it take me to a page that says this: Error displaying the error page: Application Instantiation Error: Could not connect to MySQL. So I don't know how I am going to be able to watch any shows if I cannot get to the site. I tried clicking on the actual site too I get the same message. Just my luck...

  35. Lots of luck in your new home. NY resolution work on stash and UFO's here at my home. Happy quilting weekend everyone! Me and my DH have one account. Best regards Claudia
