Quilting sleuth and author Kyra Hicks joins Nancy via Skype to share a fascinating story about Estella Weaver Nukes, who gave a quilt to President Franklin Roosevelt during the Depression years. The quilt Estella made was a Postage Stamp Quilt, and the reason behind it was that the president was the number one postage stamp collector in the United States during his time in office.
