I've had to give up my florescent lights due to migraines. I'm trying day lights, but they aren't quite bright enough. I'm getting shadows and dark walls. I'm getting older and can't see the colors…Continue
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a full time art quilter. Can't live with out my old Bernina workhorse. I'm a horse trainer and specialize in creating quilts of horses. All of my work is completely pieced. I include free shipping on quilts sold within the contiguous United States.
How many quilts have you made?
about 75 -80
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I make quilts everyday.
How long have you been a quilter?
I have been quilting for 24 years.
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I have studied Ruth McDowell's technique and am stuck on the totally pieced quilt, using her method.
Why do you quilt?
I't's a passion! The gratification of making something that can be such a surprise. I love the way they take on a life of their own. It's the healthiest therapy that I can think of. Just love it!
sorry..few probs w my little toy here..but since the friend invite flew away before i could catch it...accept..it just makes it easier to communicate things here at mqp..esp navigational & useage help for the site. i have no prob with the friending function, it is just that ...dunno..just bulky? i will message you with details on the discussion thing and other things you have might have questions about that i have learned over past year..
your status post would make an excellent discussion as we all have issues with lighting. especialy with age, sewers/quilters have need of better work area lighting with the close up work we do. i was going to comment on your status thingg and then thought i woud ask if you would start a discussion, then it will stay up on the sites home page longer and more people would pop in to comment, one discussion there has been up for sev months, over 900 comments & still getting hits. but, i too, get headaches fr flourescent and am pondering what i could use in my basement sewing room to be.
Hello Teresa....Thank you kindly for your very nice comments on my paintings. I LOVE your equine quilts (especially the grey because I especially like the tilt of his head/neck). I'm going to look up Ruth McDowell (piecing) in order to learn more. What kind of horses do you work with and what kind of training do you do? To me that's quite exciting. Marie in California
You gave me some good quotes (or mental thoughts) to put in my next book or blog too! "I often think, that long after I'm gone, my spirit will still be in these stitches that I leave behind." Quilts are wonderful mementos to pass on to future generations.
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 quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to 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?
