Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I'm a teacher and a librarian in an elementary school. I have one grown daughter and a wonderful husband and two kitties. I've been quilting since I took Home-Ed in High School. I also love to sing,read and swim.
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I enjoy them and I enjoy making them.
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I love to hand quilt, but now I just purchased a machine quilt so I want to get more into machine quilting. I also love applique..
Why do you quilt?
to exercise my creativity and because it is comforting to others and myself..
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?
