"I have had the same Zig pen for about 20 years and it's still working.  If you can find one, it's worth it.  I got mine at an art supply shop.  Have you tried looking online?"

"Very cute.  We had the preschoolers print their hand on a white block and the teachers wrote their names under the hand.  It was used as a fund raiser and the parents loved it.  We raised quite a bit for as small as the class was!"

I do a lot of scrap quilting myself.  I love working from my stash, and the more fabrics, the better!  My dh just brought home a couple of stacks of squares someone cut out to make a girly girly quilt.  One stack is hot pink, the other stack is all Disney princesses.  I have 3 boys.  I'll probably sew these together, but I don't know who for just yet!

Happy birthday, Cora~I hope you had a wonderful day!

Hi Cora!  I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon.  I hope you'll love it here as much as I do!  At first I had a hard time meeting others, but once I joined some of the groups it was much easier; everyone has been so friendly and helpful!

I learned how to quilt 6 years ago and at first I made one for each family member.  Then I was loving it so much that I wanted to make more, so now I mainly make them to sell and to donate.  I particularly enjoy donating to children's charities (Project Linus and Quilts for Kids).

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and welcome!

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 book series is written in the form of letters sent back home when my ancestors traveled to 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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek
