Hi Colleen. Thank you, I love to quilt, and hope to talk about it with some new friends.

Welcome Quilter Friend!

Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. Thanks for adding me to your friends list.

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.

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 Happy New Year!

Linda Hubalek

Hi Colleen,  Glad to meet you.  I am so new to this site I'm not familiar with how to navigate.  (Be patient and bear with me.)  I absolutely love quilting - all types - Pretty much "self-taught" until about a year ago when I joined a guild and signed up for a couple of workshops.  Am happy to be a part of this group.  Have a very Happy New Year!

Is it a little selfserving to comment on your own profile?
