Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a 47 year old mother of 3 children and a recent nanny to a 12 week old little boy. I have been married for 26 years. I have been a dental hygienist for 8 1/2 years, but in dentistry for 28 years!!
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love to quilt, just need to find more time to devote to it
How long have you been a quilter?
17 years, but have been sewing since I was like 10 years old, used to make Barbie clothes. Was always afraid to try quilting.
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I have recently appliqued, so that is probably my fav.
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?
