"I have 'hoarded' CQ books for years - gazing at the awesome work in them.  Lately, I've been getting lots of inspiration from the PinTangle site.  Sharons work simply bowls me over."

Where do I get inspiration for CQ?

I find that looking at pictures of original CQs made in the 1800s is a wonderful idea find.  But, I also like to put myself into the look of my quilt.  I am working on a king size CQ and I've only just started within the last 2 months but I am having fun.  I will write quotes, quips, pictures I especially enjoy, flowers, animals, flags, anything I like and enjoy embroidering.  I'm using all different kinds of embroidery threads and particularly enjoy the Brazilian rayon thread to work with.  An…See More

"With paper piecing I like to use Carol Doak's paper. It is easy to remove& goes thru printer fine. I also find her books/patterns to be easy. I slapping the add 1/4" ruler. Good luck. "

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.

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
