UFOs do you ever have enough?

Most of us have more UFOs than we can count, but when does it become enough, already? How long to you keep them around? Today, the most wonderful thing happened. My D-M-I-L (Mom Millie) called and…Continue

I'm a retired Realtor, and secretary. My DH and I are both widowed and now live with our 2 wonderful West Highland White Terriers, Kerri Pearl and The Rocket, age 6 years. We love old cars, playing cards, quilting, and crafting, not in that order. Our children are all grown and other than when they need us to babysit or need something else we generally do not hear from them. That is ok with us as long as we know where they are.

You could win one of three very nice prizes just for finishing up your BLOCK BUFFET quilt! Read all the details here: deadline is March 14, 2012. Happy stitching!

Years of working with used indust. machines has taught me to take apart(yes you can!) the tension disc assembly and clean it all out. If it doesn't behave after that, the tension discs' profile & spring have likely been damaged by over-tightening in the past, usually due to extended use of thin filament plastic thread.You'll need a new assembly (cheaper than a new machine) . Otherwise find an industrial machine mechanic in larger city, & take it in.Good luck!

Hey Mazine!  Good to hear from you.  I have just finished 4 little quilts.  One of them is going to my November Doll Quilt Swap partner on, and the other three are going to AAQI.  Let's see if I can attach photos to this....


Hey, I did it!  The first three are for AAQI. One is 9 by 12, the other two are 9 in. square.  The last one is for my swap partner.  It is 18 by 18.


Not sure what I'll do next.  I want to make some table toppers and mug rugs for Christmas gifts, so I should probably start on those!

I love all the quilts you have posted here.  It is good to find a familiar person from QCA on a  different site like this.  I had never been here before even though I have been an AQS member a lot longer.  Hope you are enjoying this mystery.  I sure am.

Through the quiltingboard I met with some local quilters, we meet once a month and Robin, one of the group has a wonderful work room at her place in Newcastle. So we have gathered there once a month for the past 3. Perhaps that is something you would be interested in. We just bring our sewing machines and work on whatever project. 

Look forward to seeing your Mystery Quilt progress.

Good Morning Maxine.

I see you are part of the Mystery Quilt group. I have the pattern so far, picked out fabric, and decided I needed to finish a few other things before I get started. I have loved what I have seen so far. Have you started?

Hi Maxine!  Thanks for joining the miniatures group.  What kind of mini's do you like to make?

Yes, there is always plenty to do, but a grandson's birthday party tops the list! Hope it was memorable for all of you.

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 quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.

If you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website too. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. Actually my Trail of Thread ebooks are on special, so now’s a good time to “Follow the trail to Kansas” with my quilting women.

Or if you’d like the paperback version I just posed a special on my Linda Hubalek website (until Aug. 21st) that you can get 20% off your book order by using the code QUILT in the shopping cart.

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
