is anybody starting to work on Fall and/or Halloween quilts?  I found this really simple pattern on Pinterest and I just couldn't stand NOT to make it.   Five inch squares with 3.5 inch circles hand…Continue

Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest

Posted on February 23, 2012 at 10:10pm 0 Comments

The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest was a smashing success even though we forgot about the quilt budget and went over.  We just couldn't help it, so many pretty things!  Lots and lots of batiks and lovely kits.  I had a great time and taking the Cottonwood bus over was wonderful, didn't have to drive (or buy gas).  It was a great day!

Convex vs concave

Posted on February 17, 2012 at 9:55pm 0 Comments

So I have completed my first New York Beauty, I'll post pictures tomorrow.  So, let's review, what did we learn?  We learned that concave is easier than convex.  I'm going to try a 9 inch block next time instead of a 6 inch block, maybe bigger will be easier.   And the other thing I learned?  If I'd have known I was going to quilt this much I would have paid more attention in geometry in high school.   Whew! Convex, concave, 45 degree angles, who knew?!

 Work was SO bad this week, I…

I did it!

I made four New York Beauty blocks tonight and it wasn't so bad.  Not as hard as I thought it would be and only had to tear out one block and start over.  I paper pieced the middle of the blocks and then added the inner circle and the outer border.  Found that if you cut the inner and outer circle if you cut them a little bit bigger than what you need it's easy to trim down and make it the correct size. 

Off to the MId-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton Roads, VA next week.  I haven't…

Hit the wall

Posted on February 14, 2012 at 10:48pm 1 Comment

I've hit a wall...it happens sometimes.  I've been quilting for about 30 years and pretty much try to sew at least 20-30 minutes each day.  I do sell tops on Ebay, just the little tops, paper pieced, 18 inches square, 3 inch blocks and that's fun, if I didn't I would be a hoarder and would probably be on that horrid TV show but Ebay helps me keep the tops down to a dull roar.  So, anyway, I sometimes just can't get the creativity flowing and  I just kind of sit and stare at the sewing…

There is a lady in our town who does unbelievable machine piecing on a regular sewing machine. She marks meticulously and goes slow and the result is beyond belief. She teaches her technique at our local quilt shop. I get pleasure from hand quilting and listening to audio books.

Hi, Sharon. I just looked at all your quilts. Nice work. You like the bright colors with high contrast which shows your neat piecing. How do you finish your quilts? Do you hand quilt or electric quilt?

Electric quilt program.. Sounds interesting. Think I like the designing more than the actual work. That's what I did (design) when I worked. So many ideas, so little time to sew them. I'll let you know how it goes. Send more photos! Have a great day. Frances

All I can say is wow! I collect hearts and that one is so cute. Would you
Mind if I sort of copied it? I have lots of heart prints. Of course I have big ideas and I've never even made a quilt! But I can do it. 
Take care and keep in touch. Frances

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.

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
