Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live in South Texas.
I've been sewing garments for 45 years. Started when I was 5 years old. My mother taught me to sew on a Singer Treadle Sewing machine. I also paint landscapes in acrylic and some oil. I build Halloween props for my yard. I enjoy making things, as you can tell.
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 quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to 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?
