History Quilter Podcast Episode 12 Show Notes

Podcast listeners: I completely forgot about posting the show notes for the podcast that I recorded/published last Wednesday evening.  With a three day vacation up the coast and two "back to school" days for my boys, the past week has been very busy and I've had no time to craft/blog and forgot to give myself a visual reminder to blog about the Podcast.  

Please visit or iTunes to listen to Episode 12 where my main quilting history topic was Dear Jane Quilts. 

Here are a few photos I took at the Long Beach International Quilt Festival: 

I met up with Kate of the Quilting Daydreams Podcast.  What a thrill to meet another podcaster!

This quilt of Mont St. Michel took my breath away as from far away it looked like an actual photograph and but as I got closer the texture on the quilt jumped out at me which affirmed that it was not a photograph.

Food Topics:

All three of the following items that I talked about are from the Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics cookbook by Ina Garten.  
For you Nutella lovers, I give you Nutella Swirl Pound Cake.  Very dense, sweet and full of Nutella.

Dear Jane Quilts:

Brenda Papadakis wrote Dear Jane: The Two Hundred Twenty-Five Patterns from the 1863 Jane A. Stickle Quilt  in 1996 and started a worldwide communal interest in making "baby Jane" quilts.   Ms. Papadakis calls the original quilt made by Jane A. Stickle, the "mother quilt" and all others "baby Jane" quilts.  

Have a fabulous Thursday,


  1. I also LOVED that quilt you're standing in front of!

  2. I really need to listen to you last podcast! Haven't had time alone in my sewing room for ages - maybe tonight!
    I love that recipes you share are from cooks I enjoy! The Nutella Cake sounds outrageous too!
    So nice your family could have a short trip AND you could meet a fellow podcaster! fun.

  3. Thanks for sharing Susan. The show was heaps of fun.
