“Love’s oven is warm” Baking Quilt – quilter unknown

“Dickinson understood the strong bonds that sharing food creates. Her bountiful baking, her famous basket of gingerbread lowered to the neighborhood children, her many gifts of food, her practice of sharing recipes with friends—all present her not as a recluse, but as someone intimately bound to the community. “'Love’s oven,'” she wrote in a note accompanying a packet of her delectable caramel rule (chocolate caramel), “'is warm'” (L545).” – taken from the Emily Dickinson Museum website:
