Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Retired, married.. enjoy gardening and quilting. I have 3 grown kids, 5 grandkids and one great grand daughter. One of my favorite things to do is make and donate - quilts, pillowcases, "hug buddies" pet beds, fleece hat/scarf sets. There is always some one who can use what I can give.
I do a lot of scrap quilting myself. I love working from my stash, and the more fabrics, the better! My dh just brought home a couple of stacks of squares someone cut out to make a girly girly quilt. One stack is hot pink, the other stack is all Disney princesses. I have 3 boys. I'll probably sew these together, but I don't know who for just yet!
Hi Cora! I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. I hope you'll love it here as much as I do! At first I had a hard time meeting others, but once I joined some of the groups it was much easier; everyone has been so friendly and helpful!
I learned how to quilt 6 years ago and at first I made one for each family member. Then I was loving it so much that I wanted to make more, so now I mainly make them to sell and to donate. I particularly enjoy donating to children's charities (Project Linus and Quilts for Kids).
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 book series is written in the form of letters sent back home when 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?
