Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been sewing since I was 8 but never tried quilting. I knit, crochet, embroider and do many other crafts. This summer my daughter, who does not sew asked if I wanted to go to a quilting class at the Blueribbon Quilting shop and I have caught the bug. Have pieced two tops and will be taking a quilting class next month.
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
Make them from start to finish.
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Still learning how to make my 1/2 sq trianges meet.
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?
