Wow, Lowell. How do you baste those big quilts? I lived in a house that size in Raleigh for a few years, with my family. Now we live in an old farmhouse in the country & have a lot more room. I even have a small log cabin for the quilting overflow! LOL! So, no cutting until the Christmas tree comes back down? I'm sure it's worth it. I just love having a tree. It puts a little magic into the house. It is nice to meet a male quilter. I am a mother to 3 boys, maybe someday one of them will try it.
Hello Lowell! It's great to meet you. I really like the block in your profile photo. What's it like being here with all these girls? :) I have been quilting since the early 1990's. I love color and design and make and sell patterns for some of my designs. I currently have a block in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 4. Since I am at home raising 3 sons, quilting and talking to other quilters online has really become my outlet. If you get a chance visit my shop, Curlicue Creations. I really love to see photos of other quilters' work. Each quilt is such a personal statement into who you are.
Today I'm working on my Frosty Table Runner. I'm almost done adding the borders & then on to the layering and quilting. What are you up to?
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?
