Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Cloth doll maker, genealogy researcher, aprons and bag sewer, crochet dolls, animals and afghans, beginning quilter, writer and painter. Living in So. FL My picture is a ME doll with background of what I want for my future - doll group challenge.
How many quilts have you made?
Just starting small quilt for daughter for Christmas.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
October 2011 just quilted handbag with cloth doll on it.
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?
