Kentucky Derby Hat Quilt

Posted on November 2, 2013 at 6:22pm 3 Comments

My step father called one day and asked if I would make him a Kentucky Derby Hat Quilt. He and his new girlfriend want to raffle it off to benefit a battered woman's shelter in Florida. And...did I do embroidery? Because they wanted the hats to be embroidered!!! Uh HELL no I don't embroider!!! But you are in luck…

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

you're welcome. are you still getting strange mail from that person? i don't see them on here anymore...as i can't find a page for them. so here's hoping. if you ever get stuff like that, copy and past into a complaint thing and send it to the site asap. have an older, poor health lady on here that got one a while back. she answered & then started getting more & more strange stuff in her emails. but not from mqp. so... mqp is a clean site, pretty good security, but my thing is, that if a 14 yo boy could hack into the pentagon computers, what's to keep professional scammers and identity theft computer hackers out of the systems of a simple, fun, quilty social networking site like mqp?

glad you joined us, nice to meet you.

Hello Lisa, welcome to MQP.  Hope you enjoy the site.  There is a lot to see, groups to join and friends to meet.  I love the embroidered hats quilt, it is beautiful.  There are a lot of talented ladies here that do machine quilting.  Bless you for making it for such a worthy cause.

 Just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP.

Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of quilters that are doing several different quilts, the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine’s, as she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity.

To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either Batik or 100% cotton at http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap?xg_source=activity today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project and the newest TWISTER quilts. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the note back. Yes, I've been lucky to have photos, quilts and stories from my ancestors...and they have even given me my career of writing. It's been a fun way to learn about my family.

Enjoy your weekend.

Linda

Welcome Quilter Friend!

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.

And my new books in the The Kansas Quilter series will be out late this fall. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.

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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek
