Happy Sunday Everybody!
History Quilter Podcast Episode 15 is now up on Podbean and iTunes. In this episode I talked about two ways in which quilts can be used to teach history. In a classroom setting, teaching children about quilts can inform them about the chronological age of a quilt, the geographical area where the quilt was made and the social/family history of the quilt in regards to whom it was made for and why it was made, etc. Quilts can also be used as a biographical account of a portion of a person's life as in the example I spoke about.

I asked a few questions in the podcast:
I subscribe to American Patchwork and Quilting - are there other quilting magazines which should be showing up in my mailbox?
Are there family recipes that you make that you thought were original to your family but then come to learn that many others have the same recipe?
Here is one of my vegetable gardens. It is approximately 17" by 4" right now - the plan is for another row by next spring.
