Quilt-Cam 4/4/2017

This Midnight Flight quilt  from More Adventures with Leaders & Enders is Siri’s current project, started at retreat in Texas with me several weeks ago.

I just love those 4 patches, they are my favorite part of this quilt!  And all of these happy fabrics coming together – I am giving her 3 cheers!

She writes:
Siri from Texas again, forgot to add picture of midnight flight blocks!!  Yes, 4 patches, hundreds of 4 patches, but I love making them!!!  I am sorry I will miss you at the Bear Creek workshop later in April!! 
It’s just beautiful, Siri!

Her email was sent in during our Quilt-Cam fun that happened in Facebook Live last evening.

So many emails, so many photos, so many updates - -and I loved spending the time with you stitching together.

Siri wasn’t the only one working on Midnight Flight – This one is by Helen:


She changed out the cheddar for aqua!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

A Quilt of Valor!

This beautiful big block ribbon star was made by Maria.  She writes:

Hi Bonnie I'm from Massachusetts but I winter in Florida and I just finished a quilt for my brother who is serving right now and I made him a quilt of valor for him being in the service and he just turned 50 also here's a picture of it

Big, bold and beautiful – I just know he is going to love it!


Blue & Yellow recycled fabrics! 
Hi Bonnie!  Sharon from Michigan.
Tonight I'm getting ready to quilt a top I made for my mother from 2.5" squares of thrifted blue and yellow shirts.

So glad to have a chance to work along with you tonight!
Oh, I love it.  Doesn’t it look like spring?  I just love seeing what you are working on over on your side of the monitor while I work here on my side.

As for me --


I set in to make some more Four in Nine blocks!

Click the arrow on the screen to start the feed and sew along with me!

 I’m off to Alabama this morning.  I know there are weather warnings. I could hardly sleep last night thinking about them.

My plan is to go as far as I can, and if weather gets bad, I will seek shelter and just stop.  I may hole up in a hotel outside of the area overnight, and get up extra early and drive the rest of the way tomorrow morning to get to my workshop.  

And if the work shop starts late because of it, so be it.  The most important thing is to be safe, and that goes for all of those who are traveling in for this series of 7 workshops and 3 lectures in the Birmingham area.  BE SAFE.


Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Or in the infamous words of my friend Sally, "Let go or be dragged!"

This lovely grandmother's flower garden quilt was sent to me as a cabin warming gift from my friend Karen. I love it to pieces!

Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!

  1. Safe Travels, Bonnie!

  2. I am glad I could catch most of Quilt CAM. I'm up before the Granddaughters this morning. Be safe today. Which Vintage machine is traveling with you today? Working on my Humble Quilts Doll Quilt Swap while the girls sew today. I love cutting Flying geese with the Essential Triangle.

  3. Hi Bonnie, just a quick note.... I saw the quilt your friend sent you and started to chuckle. From the corner of my eye it looked like fried eyes... so cute though. Be safe...

  5. Oh! Bonnie, I wish you were coming to Australia, Victoria preferably, to teach a class. However, I would travel anywhere In our beautiful country to attend one of your classes. Cheers Lenore

  6. Hi Bonnie:
    Here are warm thoughts and Prayers off to all of you headed to the Alabama or just plain South East part of the US. Please Be safe, take shelter if need be and have some fun, too!
