I received an email from Denise Giardullo, who sent an image and some thoughts on our kitchen prompt.
The theme Kitchen quilt resounded with me. Quite a few years ago I made a Kitchen Quilt called Cook for Two. Using old A&P fliers, and old magazine advertisements, I photo transferred images onto fabric, and then collaged them onto a quilt. The theme deals with marriage and a wife’s duties, and a husband’s expectations for his wife in the kitchen. Funny, and depressing, since it is much the same now, except that most women no longer get dressed up to serve dinner. I am really fascinated with the old ads from the forties and fifties. It is amazing to me that women and men believed, and accepted such nonsense.
