Earlier this week I was away on a little vacation and I had such an enjoyable and meaningful time that I decided to record a podcast about it. History Quilter Podcast Episode 30 where I talk about Travels and Grandmother's Quilt Blocks is now available on iTunes, Podbean and Stitcher Radio.
Here are the photos that accompany what I spoke about:
The Nimble Thimble quilt shop in Gilroy, CA that I parked in front of without paying attention:
My Aunt Connie and I.
Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, CA. Had a lovely walk around the grounds.
Tootsie's at The Stanford Barn in Palo Alto, CA. Delicious breakfast, great atmosphere and very friendly staff.
Jaye and Nonnie via my Twitter plea last night, who suggested this is an Ohio Star block on point.
And just because I can, I am entering in the 4th Annual Good Food Pie Contest to be held on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at LACMA. As of right now I have no idea which pie I will enter but I will be highlighting my pie journey here in the next seven weeks. Hope my guinea pigs are ready for PIE!
If you are a podcast listener, Good Food is an excellent food podcast originating from Santa Monica, CA. Take a listen and read the blog.
I'm off to make pie!
