Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am an almost empty nester. I love to sew and am enjoying learning to quilt. This year is my first as vice president of our local quilter's guild. I sing and play the guitar. I am trying to know
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
about 5 or 6 years
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I want to learn all about storm at sea blocks and variations
Why do you quilt?
A quilt is an emotional product of creativity that can be shared with those you love.
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?
