Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live in W Ky. I have been a quilter for about 53 years. It has always been my favorite craft. I have made many different kinds but think scraps and string quilts are my favorite to make. At present I am making a YoYo with the Clover maker. It is good for dimming sight and O'Art in the hands and wrists. I hope I can be an asset to the group.
How many quilts have you made?
Unknow but around 150 - 200.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
Make and enjoy them...
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Why do you quilt?
I think I love the challenge most. I like to set goals for myself and strive to meet them.
Hi Faye, I just read on the mug rug site where you use to sell the pattern for your Pin Cushion Doll. I have a embroidery machine and would love to buy your pattern, so I can make some for my sewing friends. If this will be possible, please let me know, I can pay using PayPal or can send you a check? Let me know the price and if there is anything else I need
Here is my email address email@example.com please let me know at this address
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 Quilterseries will be out by early 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?
Faye, I see you found a group. I don't know of any rules that you can break or somewhere you aren't supposed to be. Only thing I can think of is that you can't comment on the page of a group unless you are a member of that group. But you can still read the posts and see what is going on there.
Hello Faye, welcome to MQP. Hope you enjoy the site. There is a lot to see, groups to join and friends to meet. It took me a while to get involved, but when I joined a group that is where I "met" some very nice ladies. I am sure you have a lot to share with us here.
