Happy birthday, Carolyn~I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'm Bridget and I live in a very small town on the north Oregon coast that doesn't have a guild, quilting groups or classes, so I joined this site in hopes of meeting other quilters. At first it was hard meeting people, but once I joined some of the groups it was much easier; everyone is so friendly and helpful!
I've been quilting for 6 years and enjoy piecing and machine quiting. Lately I've been experimenting with other techniques such as applique. I make my quilts to sell, donate or give as gifts, but I'm wanting to make one just to keep for myself. Proably a Dresden Plate. I enjoy that pattern.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
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?
