Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a fiber artist working with surface design techniques to create my own designs in my favorite fabrics: silk and linen (sometimes rayon).
I love to teach others and share the joy I feel when completing a piece and it actually turns out better than expected. I use the fabrics in classic piecing, applique, and wearable art which will express a little of my inner persona. Itis a great way to play.
How many quilts have you made?
/too numerous to count is counting all the completed tops which need quilting.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
About 38 years.
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Why do you quilt?
For the joy of it; I can't NOT quilt.

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?
