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 Quilterseries 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?
Welcome you to MQP, I am Chef Lisa an honest to goodness Chef.
Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site. Over a year ago I joined in, navigated throughout and started a few pages with several swaps.
The swaps have very been successful. I wanted to let you know that I have a group of quilters that are doing several different swaps: the 2 ½” Designer Quilt Store quality Batiks, the Charm Squares 5” in Batiks and Cotton and new the 10” Layer Cake. The swap is just starting new sign-ups for the New Year!
Carla Walton and Colette LeFever are the administrators for the Designer Batik Swap. You will need to friend Carla, Colette, and Chef Lisa along with Teresa Scanlon that is doing the Cotton Charm Swap. Come on over to view what we are doing at the projects page http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity., some of the gals are doing the Blooming Nine Patch and the Jewel Tone that uses the 2.5” strips and the Charms. Some of the group is doing the Twister quilts with the’ lil’ twister tool, just view that page also. The new Layer cakes will soon have a place in everyone’s hearts.
