Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am the 44 yr old mom to a 21 yr old, 15 yr old daughter and stepmom to two boys age 17 and 19. I am artistic and crafty. I draw, cross stitch, quilt and read like a mad fiend. I sew for a living. I sew parts for medical equipment that goes all over the world.
I have recently started making quilts for the Quilts for Kids organization.
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.
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. (Good choice for Christmas too!)
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?
