"I would like to join a swap group. I have been absent for 2 years after marriage brakedown. Now happily resettled with sewing machine and fabrics ready to get back into it. Anyone have a vacancy for a swap."
"Thanks Deb. That will mean I will owe $9.75 to the person posting me the April mug rugs as Mary had an arrangement for me to pay her the cost less $3 already sent to her. So Connie I will probably owe you the money! I will include…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland Australia with my husband John and three sons in their twenties. I still work part-time but enjoy relaxing sewing. I love making quilts mostly suitable for females much to my families dismay. Both my husband and I have begun travelling a little. We both can't wait to have grandchildren one day. I have enjoyed swapping blocks and mug rugs for a few months now.

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 books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out mid 2014. 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?
