Tying the Knot is done!

Posted by Linda Hubalek on April 9, 2014 at 1:38pm 0 Comments

I wrote in my diary on April 24, 1982 that I wanted to write a book about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made. Although that idea started my writing career, I didn't get around to starting on Kizzie's book until 2003. Then other things in life took priority...

Now I'm proud to say the first book in my great grandmother's story Tying the Knot is finally out this…

Well I have finally gotten all the embroidery finished and now to move on to the finishing touches to make this quilt a treasure for my sweet, brand new granddaughter.  Crisp cotton and satin trim is the vision.  I'll let you all know when finished.  I'm inspired to use a bit of my grandmothers lace as well, but not sure it will hold up over time.  It is already 50 years old.  Any ideas, ladies?  I think cotton lace is something to be treasured, but not used on a project that will go many…
