Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live in western North Carolina and have been quilting for 12 years. I do tradtional pieced and appliqued quilts. I try to stretch occasionally and do a little something on the art side. I have recently won Best of Show in a good sized southeast regional quilt show.

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.
Please watch for my blog post on this quilting site on Wednesdays. I post old photos, and the story about the pioneer family, their dugout, an antique quilt, recipe, etc. I sometimes add excerpts from my books for you to enjoy too.
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 here or 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?
