Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am teaching myself to quilt...I have made a few quilts but not enough to consider myself a quilter yet. I do sew and I do machine embroider, so quilting is new to me.
How many quilts have you made?
Not many...learning stages...am working on 3rd quilt now.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I want to make quilts and enjoy everyone else's quilts as well.
How long have you been a quilter?
Off and on about 5 years; however, every time I would start to learn quilting something would come up and all would have to be shelved for a while. I tried to learn just hand piecing/quilting but I find I do not have the patience for that.; hence, only getting 1 quilt top finished. Since learning piecing by machine I have completed 1 quilt for my grandson having had it quilted by long arm specialist. I have finished 1 fun'n'done quilt but I did not really care for that.
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Too new to say right now...I love piecing and am now trying to learn needle-turn applique.
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?
