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 book The Kansas Quilter will be out this fall. 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?
hi marcia & welcome to My Quilt Place. the modern quilt mystery ended some time last year. i don't know if weeks keeps tabs on the site for it, i don't know why it is still up. i also don't know if the links to the segments are still valid. but...i found weeks' mqp page for you, she is a member here too, and if you post your query there you might stand better chance of an answer from her. you could also send a note to aqs. reading the other day on their site i think there was a note about the contest you seek to enter.
i looked at their list of upcoming shows didn't see mention or adds for the modern contest. but at very bottom of page there are links in the green bar. last one on right says "contact us". maybe send a note there, as they are usually the coordinaters of these shows & contests.
good luck, and i hope you post a photo of your quilt here to share with all of is. there are quite a few posted here. there is even a gallery started by one member of the mystery group with almost all of the completed quilts in it.
