About

Hello, my name is Betsy and I live just north of Chicago with my husband and two sons.  My two favorite things to do is to cook and sew.  I starting cooking as a child helping Mom in the kitchen.  Growing up in a house of 7, it was my job to come home from school and start dinner before Mom got home from work.  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.
