Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am 61 yrs old and I am retired. I have one grown daughter age 29, who just recently got married. I have been happily married for 18 yrs to the love of my life. I have one fur baby & 2 feather babies who keep me entertained. I love to quilt, garden in flowers and surf the web.

Why do you quilt?
Quilting satisfies a passion in me to both create and to give to others something they otherwise would not have, an heirloom quilt.
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?
