Sled Dog Bag side opposite zipper smaller

"Oh and did I mention the length of webbing that she told you to cut at half the length you actually need? I think it was because you double it and then sew it on, so the finished length is half the total you need to cut. Just inattentive but someone…"

"If it's any consolation, Cheryl, the bag is very cool! The faux chenille really adds a great element! I noticed it on several of your bags! It also shows you have the skill to make something work on your own, without clear direction! That is…"

"l think the chenille idea's terrific. What you went through making it is a shame, after paying for a pattern...one reason why l never buy patterns, but draft my own. Love your fabric choice."

"The pattern is called "Kidney Sling Pack" by Laura Dennison. Use this pattern at your own psychological peril. I have been sewing for about 60 years and I've never seen such a badly written pattern. It has omissions, things in wrong…"

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Long-time quilter and knitter, also a spinner for the past ten years or so. I enjoy art quilts and paper piecing. I would like to do more hand quilting, but for reasons of time in making quilts to help Siberian Husky rescue raise funds, I mostly machine quilt, although I'm still working on doing a good job with free-motion machine quilting.
How many quilts have you made?
I have lost count if you count small wall hangings and baby quilts.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I have a long list of quilts I want to make, am slowly working on the list.
How long have you been a quilter?
40 years
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I don't have a favorite. I love learning new techniques. I do much prefer piecing over applique.
Why do you quilt?
I love color and fabrics and am captivated by the way they play out in the geometric patterns.
Do you have a website?

Happy Birthday, Cheryl.  Hope you have a fun day...

Hi Cheryl, you sound busy.  I belong to a group that makes quilts for children/teens at risk.  Very rewarding.

Happy Birthday, Cheryl.  Hope your day is delightful...

Then you probably have seen the signs for Ness City and Ransom on US 283. <G> We were married 43 years ago August 5 and it was 106 degrees that day. Our friends from the East were highly...uh...impressed. 

And yes, I'm sure the next time we're in Wichita, where John hails from, we'll be tempted by Lindsborg once again. Know the stores you mention, also love the "Small World" photo gallery.

HI Cheryl,

I think this is one of those "small world" type of things. My husband is from WaKenney, so kind of know your original neck of the woods.

And glad you've been to Lindsborg. You probably saw my books when walking in the Swedish Crafts or Hemsjold stores downtown.

We're having a very unusual cool and wet summer. I just checked and would you believe it is only 69 degrees and rainy today? I was married 37 years ago today and it was 108 degrees that day- more normal for this time of year in Kansas.

Hope you can stop by next time you're in the area.

Linda

Welcome Quilter Friend!

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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek
