History Quilter Podcast Episode 13 Cigar/Tobacco Quilts Show Notes

Happy Monday everyone,

I just uploaded Episode 13 where I spoke about Cigar/Tobacco Quilts made in the United States from the 1880's to the 1920's.  This fascinating topic which intersected quilting with marketing and tobacco was brought to my attention by Darla of the Scientific Quilter Podcast.  Thank you Darla.  :)

Darla sent me the link to which is the online museum for the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum located in Golden, Colorado.  Every weekday on their blog they appear to publish a Quilt of the Day where Darla discovered the June 21, 2011 Quilt of the Day - a cigar flannel quilt made around the the turn of the twentieth century with flannel "flags" with designs from ranging from country flags, Native American designs, butterflies and flowers.

Here's the Chicken Satay recipe link from the Steamy Kitchen blog that I spoke about. Go check it out - it's good.

I just purchased Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt and look forward to improving my garment sewing skills with projects from this book.  I heard Kay Whitt interviewed on the Sew Forth Now podcast hosted by Lori and was so impressed by her interview.

Let me know if I missed anything from the podcast that you want to know more about.


  1. Looking forward to listening! ;-)

  2. Yay, I love your podcast and am always happy when a new episode is released. I really like the cooking bits you do as well.

    I would love to hear an episode one day on the history of quilting bees. I participate in several bees on Flickr and they are very, very different from what quilting bees used to be like. That got me thinking and wondering about them, which made me in turn think of you! I probably could just Google it but I thought it might make a good topic for your podcast.

  3. Thanks a lot for adding this valuable information here.I have been looking forward for content like this.I shall say at the end that the writing skills of the writer are extra ordinary...
