Hi Connie,

I have to comment on your little home page quilt...a pinwheel, if I remember right.  I started quilting in the late 60's and patterns were hard to find.  I don't remember where I found that pinwheel-but I made  a small pink and white scrappy baby one for a Mormon friend.  Several years later she asked me to come to her church's boutique.  I was thrilled they had covered the sales tables with old quilts, and I started sketching the patterns.  She caught me drawing a terribly worn and faded quilt...and told me that was the one I had made her.  She was embarrassed to admit that she had had to wash it nearly every day since she brought the baby home.  I, of course, was thrilled to know it had been used and loved.  Kelly, the baby, told me(when she was in Junior High) that she still had it hidden in her closet.

Welcome Quilter Friend!

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 books in the Kansas Quilter series will be out mid 2014. 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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Hi Connie!  Welcome to MQP!  It's a great place for sharing and learning.  I'm excited to see some of those 100s of quilts you've made.  What techniques do you teach?  I'm a hand-quilter, too, and wish I could find a quilt store in my area who is hiring.

Hello Connie, welcome to MQP.  Hope you enjoy the site.  There is a lot to see, fun groups to join and friends to meet.  Love the comment of checkbook quilt.
