It all started when...
Hello, my name is Betsy and I live just north of Chicago with my husband and two sons. I just love to cook and sew and share recipes. I starting cooking as a child helping Mom in the kitchen. Growing up in a house of 7, it was often my job to come home from school and start dinner before Mom got home from work. As a teen I used to visit the library and check out cookbooks. I'd come home and hand-write recipes that I wanted to try. I've been doing this ever since, thankfully now with the use of a copy machine or computer! I just can't pass up what I think would be a great recipe. When I find one, I love to share. I hope you will like them too!
I also started sewing as a child. As my Mom would sew and I would beg to use her machine to make doll clothes. She bought me a used machine as a teen and I have been sewing every since. I particularly enjoy making quilts and bags. With my love of both sewing and cooking I came up with the name Quilt and Cafe. Thank you for spending time with me. I look forward to your comments.
