Thank you Connie I received my Ugly fabric today. Wow, you sure did have a large piece. Won't be able to get back to it yet till I am finished with my Ghost quilting that I started and put aside for something else and now that I have it registered I better get it done if they want it for the Little Rock show.
Connie make any kind of comment in the Batik page and you must become a member of the Batik group also. Thanks for joining! This is a fun group!
The majority of the gals have been with the group for over a year now so this was a way for me to give back with the exchange, but I don't want to just limit our members. I wanted to include everyone from the My Quilt Place forum.
thank you...and may your journey thru mqp pages, groups, discussions be filled w fun, learning & friendships - new and ? old...try a search on the page "quilters" in the header at top of every page ...put friends name in and search...i have seen several comments of quilters "meeting" old quilting acquaintences/friends here at mqp. especially since there are so many of us now. ya just never know!
ahhh! "the 'ol she who dies with the most fabric!" wins idea.... my bqff has decided that with her childrens help and cooperation, she CAN take it with her. she decided coffin filled w beautiful scrumptious quilting cottons would be far more desirable to line her last resting place than satin!
welcome to mqp..lots of fun and friendly quilters. great swaps, groups for every area of quilting you enjoy. so much learning shared... My Quilt Place ...great place to hang
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?
