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

What a sweet quilt Sherri. Looks like your efforts are producing fruit.

What a sweet quilt, Sherri - love the birdees!!!  I can't help on the quilting frame either.  I love the look of hand quilting but couldn't live long enough to do my quilts that way.  Wish I knew someone who still did that.

Sherri, That's adorable! Love those pudgy birds - well fed, eh? I wish I could help you on the quilt frame but, like Janis, I don't have room for one. I'd have to take over the dining room and dh would NOT be happy about that. Gwen hand quilts and may know of someone who does. Otherwise, you might check with a local guild. Best I can suggest.

IN the work of cleaning my room yesterday I found my camera.  Been looking for that for months.    Also found my grandmother's sewing basket.  It over 100 years old and now holds my bobbins.  Anyway.  I pulled this one out of my UFO pile a few weeks ago and quilted it.

Carol, your quilt is beautiful and I'm sure you will find someone who will love it.

Sherri, you are hard at work but just think about how nice your space will be when you are done. My sewing room is a mess as I'm working on a second king size quilt. Finished a king from my nephew who is getting married in August. It's at the long arm quilter now. So I'm working on a second king in the same pattern for my niece who called last month and said she was getting married this month. I'm almost ready to start putting the borders on her quilt. It's been a challenging few months trying to purchase the fabrics when the quilt shops aren't open or only allow 5 people in at a time. I wound up purchasing the fabrics online from Jordan Fabrics and Fabrics.com. Had to make one trip up to the quilt shop for some backing for my nephew's quilt.

Once their quilts are done I plan on making a dress for the wedding in August then some placemats and tablerunners for fun.

I don't have room for a quilt frame and my arthritis is bad so no hand quilting for me but I love hand quilted quilts.

PS Carol,  love the baby quilt...Are you the baby quilt producer for Tuscarawas County??? How did you get that job?  I have several I have put away for future great grandchildren which I hope do not arrive for several years... But They should all have a quilt from Great Gramma when they get here.. If of course the planet is still supporting human life, and we are not living in concentration camps by then. And  in fact the more I think of it,  the more I think,  why would anyone bring a child into this world as bad a shape as it is????  Yes I am the Grinch whether it is December or July.

OH my the problems that a government can cause,  Especially when it is in disarray. And we are fighting each other incessantly.   Oh well I am self quarantined in my sewing space.  Purging... I am getting rid of years of quilting magazines,  that for some unknown reason I saved???? My new plan is when one comes in the door after I have read it and pulled out what I may want to keep it goes into the trash can.  I hate doing that with all these magazines,  But the AAUW book donations do not take magazines this year. So off to the trash pile they go.  I  can't bear to get rid of my Qultmker magazines though I have every copy of those ever published I believe.... HOpefully when this room is purged and rearranged I will feel more like sewing again.  I have been making som small progjects like hanger covers, and eye glass cases... And now both my spouse and my daughter are not speaking to me.. One the spouse was offended when I wanted to add an Electrician's Handbook, which he used back in apprenticeship school.. what 55years ago???? And the other thinks I should just throw all the books I have put in the boxes for the AAUW sale out.  But I am not doing that.. I will continue to plug away at this until I can barely stand tonight.  I will deliver them this Tuesday to their collection site.  Lots of quilting books, in there and cook books, and health for seniors books.  I swear I buy a lot of books.... And now I only read on my Kindle as I can barely see the print on a hard copy book.  

aND WHILE I am purging does anyone know of anyone or want a hand quilting frame... It's a HOmestead frame and I'd like to find someone who would use it rather than leave it for my kids to throw away after I have passed.   I am asking $100 and it has two sets of rails, one for a full to queen size quilt and one for smaller crib to twin size.   It was used about 6 times,  IN good working order,  instructions and all the pieces are still intact.

Trying to keep upbeat and busy.  New baby quilt; no recipient yet so into the closet till it's needed.  Starting today on some curtains for a teacher friend who wants to freshen up her classroom this fall.  In my mind, I'm not sure in person education will happen this year but I'll make her curtains and they will be ready whenever she can use them.

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!
