Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a Grama of 6... Wife of one..Mother of 2.
I started quilting when my children moved on to college and the Marines. Until then I was found sewing thier apperal.
Then grandchildren need quilts, don't cha know! I had a few quilt tops made when my first grandson was born and then his sister was on her way.....more babies, more quilts! And I was hooked. I am very lucky to have a husband who supports my habit with lots of understanding and my own sewing room.
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?
