Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I love to quilt! I like to: hand piece, machine piece, hand quilt, machine quilt,and to appliqué, make landscape/pictorial quilts and of course make traditional quilts. I enjoy meeting with other quilters and taking road trips to admire quilts and buy to fabric and take classes.
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I don't have a favorite I enjoy all kinds
Why do you quilt?
I learned to quilt because I moved to a new town and I was lonely
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.
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?
