Ho Theresa, I just joined, don't know anything about the site. Just started quilting. Do you live near by How long have you been quilting? What is the African Princess Quilt and how would I get it or see a picture?
oh...i forgot...can you post a photo of your dogwood quilt? when i lived in new jersey i loved the springtime woodland around our house when the dogwoods bloomed. one of my favorite wild flowering trees. we have them in the western mountains, but seldom see them. they just don't seem to be as common as the eastern dogwood.
Thankyou for your christmas greetings i hope you have a happy 2012 I am also a fan of your african princess quilt, my husband is from North Africa and i have been recently drawn to all things African. I am quite new to quilting will start off on a few cushions and wallhangings then work my way up to a quilt hopefully, it's interesting to be on the other side of the pond.
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. (Good choice for Christmas gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)
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?
