I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

For those who would be interested in making this top as a "challenge"- to keep each other encouraged, it would be fun to see our progress and do a "show 'n tell" as we go along. It will be easier to…Continue

Well, I can't do video chats on my computer as I don't have a camera and have no intention of getting one. If I did, my company would be in my back pocket all of the time. Not happening. I can do it on my phone but, that just isn't fun.

Kathy, I have a friend who's been married 6 times. She said she's going to need to take a suitcase... Another male friend of ours said he went with his birth certificate, his military DD214 (discharge form), and his passport. They sent him home for a Form 1099. I mean, REALLY! He's self employed - how in Holy Hannah would the BMV know that and how could they require a form that not everyone would have? Just stupid and invasive.

I've got several projects on the back burner right now. The 3 quilt tops I finished during furlough need to have backings pieced and taken to the LA quilter, I have 2 doll quilts in the makings for Christmas gifts, Week after 4th I'll be at my daughter's and we'll be making curtains. AND - another set of twin girls due in December. Ugh. I honestly don't know how I've kept up with everything for so many years. I'm exhausted.

I have absolutely no idea at all how to set that up Marianne but I think it would be fun!  I would definitely be interested!

Good morning from UK ladies.  Are any of you using zoom as a communication method.  Many businesses are holding meetings it's more cost effective.  I meet with my sister's in Australia and Bavaria,  it's like we r in the same room sharing a coffee or glass of wine.  It would b great to have a quilting zoom meet, what do you all think, would love to know your thoughts.

Don't forget if you have been divorced you have to have all that paper work. I'll pass.

Oops - hit send too quickly. 

I had to provide the marriage license to obtain both the new Social Security card and the military ID - Really! What a pile of manure...

Comment by Sheila Craft on June 26, 2020 at 11:15am

Yea - no clue, Carol! All lovely, for sure. If it were me, I'd price the applique higher simply because it's more time consuming.

Ladies - fair warning, if you haven't gotten your new "starred" driver's license yet, you have to take - not only your birth certificate but, also your marriage license! I was ready to reach out and "Touch" someone this morning at the BMV when I had to go all the way back home to get that. They said that it was a "Federal" requirement but that a Federally issued Social Security card and a Federally issued military ID card weren't good enough to show that my name was changed from what was on my birth certificate. Totally discriminatory, if you ask me!

Ooh, that's a hard question to answer. I would look at the size, estimate how much fabric is required to make new, add in labor to make and then examine the condition. Other than that advice I have no idea how you would go about determining the value of a vintage quilt.

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on June 26, 2020 at 9:08am

Hey ladies, I know none of you are expert appraisers especially from a distance but a family friend is setting up an estate auction and asked my opinion on a rough ballpark expectation on these four vintage quilts  - hand quilted.  Any ideas?

Janis thats a unique way to show support. So creative we can be sometimes.  Anyway  I do not know what was the cause of death.  I only know the last time I spoke with her she was hoping to go back home after rehab she sounded very depressed.  But I do not know if she ever did get home and then had to go back.  I hope to learn more on MOnday at the funeral.   There is going to be a wake and a showing.  We will go to the funeral mass on MOnday.  Still trying to avoid as much people contact as possible.. But I do not think that she was done in by the covid.  I sometimes wonder if she was just so depressed she gave up. But hope to get more details from her family on Monday.  She was a very nice lady,  for sure, and she will be missed not only by me,  but her family. HUsband Larry,   4 sisters and a brother,  her 3 sons and her 7 grandchildren. She lived for those grandchildren.   Rest in peace Diane.

Meanwhile  I am trying to finishe up a couple of UFO's in the sewing room today, since I look outside and see gloomy weather and water falling from the sky.  She was a very nice lady,  for sure, and she will be missed not only by me,  but her family.
