Thanks for your note. Your mentioning of aprons sent me on a nostalgia trip with ones my grandma and mom used to wear...
Sounds like you're really enjoying quilting now. Seems like an art that a lot of women pick up eventually and truly enjoy once they get going.
Thanks also for ordering the first of my books. I hope you like them and continue reading. I'm working on my next series which will have more "quilting" in them compared to the Trail of Thread series. Just got a lot on my plate right now so it's not coming together to fast.
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?
