Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live in Durango, Mexico. In my spare time, I love to do arts & crafts. I paint material, do repujado, and quilt. When younger, I began quilting bedspreads, now because it is difficult to find good material, I am quilting smaller articles like quillows, potholders and pillows and tablerunners. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed quilting!!!
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 book series is written in the form of letters sent back home when 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?
