"What a BEAUTIFUL quilt!! I loved just as much your story of how you and Mark have remained good friends. This benefits 'everyone', particularly your children. When my husband [of 25 years] and I divorced, we too remained…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been sewing since I was a young girl. I absolutely LOVE fabric and I have a collection of fabrics I've purchased over the past 45 - 50 years. I can't pass up buying at least a 'piece' of pretty fabric. This has paid off with my sewing and quilting projects.
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
make them and enjoy them
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I love most technique's but have really enjoyed making the Pineapple quilts.
Why do you quilt?
It's a wonderful way to express your creativity and hopefully make a gift that the recipient will love for a long time to come.
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 Kansas Quilterseries will be out mid 2014. 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?
