I have been in touch with the guild that did the log cabin quilt that you liked and they are trying to come up with a pattern. The maker was involved in a flood and certain parts of the pattern were lost. I was surprised when I heard the gal was looking after I inquired to the guild. Quilters are great people, aren't they?!
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?
Dru---I created the lattice with Electric Quilt, and most of the flowers are from Kumiko Sudo's books. The geraniums I learned from a friend. The hummingbirds were created using Bernina embroidery software and then appliqued on. Guess it was just a combination of fun things I put together.
