saw your avatar on the member list at UFO group page. pretty. so i came over here to "meet" you.
i don't often visit My Quilt Place members blogs. but i wandered on over to yours. glad i did. leaving it open on my very full nrowser...your "finished" post about the four patch. my first thought was how similar it is to my "New Jersey Twilight" 9-patch done w fleamarket baggie of poorly cut 4 1/2" fabric squares. i'm a scrapper, cannot throw anything away if larger than 1/2" :))..trimming threads a while back...the pile so prettily colorful lollol...they are now in a baggie...there must be something i can use them on as a very pretty addition :)
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?
