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.
