"The way I figure it is when you sign up for one of these swaps, you have to go in knowing that you probably are not going to get one from everyone. I hosted this same thing at IFQ some years ago for about three years running and I had to hound…"
"Evelyn, I sent your FQ on the 4th so you should be getting it any day now. Can't believe how long it takes to get from me here in the US to you in Canada. It just doesn't seem right to take that long. "
"Hi Mary in group 3. Your package arrived and was I WOWED! The fabric is gorgeous. I love the stained glass "bear paw". I will hang it in my sewing room in front of a light and it will be awesome. Thanks so…"
"Hey Evelyn in Group 3, I just sent out your Birthday Fat Quarter. It should be about 3 weeks until you get it. Hope it arrives safe and sound. Have a great day and let me know when it arrives. Quilty Hugs, Donna"
"Oh Cait, I am so glad you finally got my charms. I can't believe it took almost three months to get three. I can't even remember how I packaged it now. I hope I did a bubble pak. I usually do when I send…"

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 quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to 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?
