Did you see Roberta Estes' Scan-A-Thon Hangout!?!?

+15 votes

During a Scan-A-Thon Hangout yesterday morning someone brought up scanning and posting a quilt. The discussion then turned to, how would you source a picture of a Quilt?

We went to a DNA expert to get that answer of course!

Roberta Estes is a quilter as well as a genetic genealogy expert. She stopped by our Scan-A-Thon Hangout to show us how family information can be sewn into quilt and how to attribute the quilt when adding an image of it to a WikiTree profile!

Thanks for your quilting expertise Roberta,

My mom and/or her sister have a quilt that was made by either my Grandmother or her mother. Every other square is a name of someone in the family. My favorite quilt ever. I'm not sure which one actually owns it - it used to be at my Grandmother's and then they built a house together.

Take a picture of it, front and back and post it to the profile of the person who quilted it.

I keep missing these things. Oh well. Always good to call in an expert on these things. And ya know it is recorded so that's good.

She's talking about the quilt and all I want to know about is the kitty on her chair.

Very cool to have had her there. I'll see if I can make the 5 pm one. Someone message me. Get a signal in the sky or something. =)
