HI Mary Louise,

I think it's fascinating to find old quilts and blocks, wondering who worked on them last and why they weren't finished. The older the quilt, the more my imagination goes.

Quilt patterns can have so many different names. Sometimes it's based on how many pieces in it, to a location or fashion at the time. Sometimes the pattern name makes sense, and sometimes I don't have a clue!

Have a good day, quilting or whatever you're doing today!

Welcome Quilter Friend!

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.

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?

Happy quilting and a blessed New Year!

Linda Hubalek
