History Quilter Podcast Episode 26 Hawaiian Quilts 2.0

Hello everyone,
I recorded and uploaded History Quilter Podcast Episode 26 yesterday and is now available both on Podbean and iTunes.

Hawaiian Quilts received bit more airtime this episode due to Jaye's comment about the German tradition of Scherenschnitte or scissor cuts in which she shared how Scherenschnitte is the big sister of snowflake cutting.  Last time when I spoke about Hawaiian Quilts I explained how they mimicked snowflake cutting as the design appeared to be cut out of one single piece of fabric.

So what do you think?  Do you see the link between Scherenschnitte and Hawaiian Quilts?
