"I've been wanting to do a red, black and white one but I think I'll put the lime green in place of the red. Just curious how that will look. I saw it in a quilt one time and it looked pretty cute. I'll give it away of course. lol"
Glad to hear from you. I just got on this site and am totally lost. I've got to see if I can figure out how all this works. Hope I don't make too many errors trying. Have also got to get back to my quilting. Seems like I get too many things going at once. Am trying to do paper piecing and have never done it. The design is a hard one for a first try. Has lots of little pieces. Had to put it down for a little while. Maybe it will be easier my next try. Have a good day.
Thank you for the friend request. I love your quilts and family pictures. I also am a grandmother of 2....3 year old boy and 19 month old girl....brother and sister. I babysit for them while mom is getting her master degree in nursing education and daddy works. It keeps me busy. When I get a chance, I want to post pictures of my sewing room that we are remodeling and some of my quilts. I don't see that happening until the end of this school semester. My husband and I are also primary care givers for his dad and my mom. We have 3 adult children in addition to our awesome grandkids!! Love the simplicity of your quilts.
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?
