I recently purchased a Milli from APQS and have joined the long arm community I hope to do this as a business to pay for the machine. I have always been a hand quilter so this will be quite a change for me. I have always enjoyed quilting, sewing, crafting, and gardening so I am enjoying getting to know Milli. I enjoyed visiting the site tonight and reading what others had to say. Hello to everyone and I look forward to any and all future advice and tips.
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
since I was 12 but I have always worked and have recently made a change and am looking forward to just enjoying creating and quilting many beautiful quilts for others also
Yes besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. I think you can buy my ebooks through Amazon.com that supports other ebook devices too. Just click on the two links above, or type in "Linda K Hubalek" under the ebook section. Thanks for asking, and enjoy them!
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?
