Chattanooga Quilt Show

Posted on September 16, 2014 at 12:24pm 3 Comments

I had a superb time at the Chattanooga Quilt Show, my first quilt show in the USA and my first retail therapy for the longest time.  Even so, I spent very little, partly because there was so much on offer.  A man tried to sell me a BIG long-arm quilting machine but I explained that it wouldn't fit into my boat.  So I bought a few fat quarters to make a journal quilt of the Blue Ridge Mountains, complete with a bear.

HI Linda,

I hope you've been sailing on warm weather... Here in Kansas we're about to get another big snow storm.

Sounds like you'll have two fascinating books in the process. Be sure to post them on this website when they are done as there will be many interested in them, besides me.

Please do enjoy my books about my pioneer ancestors. Life wasn't easy for them, and I think their homesteading stories really tells readers what like was like for the early pioneers.

Enjoy your day!

Welcome Quilter Friend!

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 historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.

And my new books in the Kansas Quilter series will be out mid 2014. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.

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?

Happy quilting and reading!
