Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I've been sewing since I was seven years old - that's now 58 years! I love quilting but most of all I love fabrics - their colors, their textures, the way being around them makes me feel. As a mother, a grandmother, sister, daughter and friend I have had many occasions to make and give quilts. I onlyhope I can get through my stash and all the fabric I will add to it before I die!
How many quilts have you made?
75-100 (who counts?)
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Probably appliance borders
Why do you quilt?
Because I can NOT quilt. It's my relaxation, so eetimes my frustration, but always my joy.
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.
If you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website too. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. Actually my Trail of Thread ebooks are on special, so now’s a good time to “Follow the trail to Kansas” with my quilting women.
Or if you’d like the paperback version I just posed a special on my Linda Hubalek website (until Aug. 21st) that you can get 20% off your book order by using the code QUILT in the shopping cart.
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?
