"Thanks Deb Hartz, I was going to buy the pattern but couldn't find it at my LQS, so I thought, it can't be that hard. Please post a photo of yours when it is completed, I would like to see it, thanks!"
"Love this! I saw this type of quilt at a local quilt show in September. I thought I should be able to figure it out but after failing in my first couple attempts I spent the $10 and bought the pattern. I'm making it large enough to use over my…"
"Thanks....this is made out of strips, the square in the square would make it hard to line up ►I think. And with the strips there is no waste, ALL the triangles are cut from the same strip..over 200 inches long, I might add :)"
"I am in hopes of being able to drive tomorrow or the next day, so I can get to the post office. I took a fall and my hip has been giving me a limp. Mary please be on the lookout for my candle mat. Thanks ♥"

Hi Clara! I have started a Mug Rug swap in the Swapping Fun is for Everyone group. Your message to members had quite a few positive responses by group members interested in a mug rug swap. If you are still interested please stop by the discussion (Marvelous Mug Rugs) and join in the fun.
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?
