I have been Quilting for a little over 10 years now. I started after a long and serious medical condition took my health, and ability to work with it. I am doing better now but will never be healthy again, but I can sew. And I fell in love with quilting, and fabric, and just all of it. Now It is my passion, and my obsession. I have recently begun showing some small stuff at FayesQuiltedDreams.etsy.com. I would love to make enough to support my fabric shopping habit, so my husband can have a little more to spend of his paycheck.I
How many quilts have you made?
I'm not sure, 5 or 6 bed, and lots of small ones
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love making them, I need to learn more about settings next.
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Paper piecing, but I do a lot of machine piecing as well.
I love all your zippered bags, especially the one with the beaded fringe. They should sell well.
I attended a demo of how to make the zippered bags and I bought the kit - but there it sits as a UFO! I also took a course with Karen Perrine on how to make beaded fringe - very time consuming . And they have to be just right - not too tight or the fringe won't swing.
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. (Good choice for Christmas gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)
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?
