Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have had a love for sewing since I was a small child watching my grandmother and aunt sew and quilt. I have been sewing since the 1960's but did not begin quilting until 2008 at which time I became hooked. I retired last year and since then have been able to spend more time enjoy my sewing room and making quilts that help to bring comfort to others.
How many quilts have you made?
I would say 50-60
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I love Pinwheels and the Diagonal grid
Why do you quilt?
It is something that I enjoy and it helps to bring comfort to others.

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?
