Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a fairly new quilter with vey high goals set for myself. I have been recently laid off so now I have a lot of to work on my passion, well when my 5 month old grandson allows me that is. I also enjoy crocheting crafting and couponing. I have become quite the couponista lately since I am not working so that I can continue to add to my stash. LOL
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I don't really have one favorite technique
Why do you quilt?
It is relaxing yet somehow it can make you want to pull your hair out. I am able to express myself in ways that bring joy to others.

Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
And my new book The Kansas Quilter will be out this fall. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
