I'm a Christian wife and mother who homeschools. I got into quilting in 2008 when I had to have two unexpected surgeries and was put on 12 weeks of bedrest. That gave me plenty of time to do a lot of reading and I chose beginner quilting books to learn the basics.
How many quilts have you made?
I've made between 30 and 40 quilts.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love to make and enjoy quilts.
How long have you been a quilter?
I've been quilting since 2009
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I machine quilt all of my quilts on my Janome 6500.
Why do you quilt?
I enjoy quilting. It gives me a great release after homeschooling all week.
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?
