Thanks for becoming my friend. I don't have any friends at all except you. How sweet you are!! I don't know hardly anything about quilting but I joined this place to learn how to quilt. So far I haven't really had much time to devote to quilting but I have a deep desire to learn all I can possibly learn about quilting. My grandmother used to quilt and I loved watching her make her quilts. I do know about cutting pieces of fabric because I helped my grandmother do that part of her quilting. I was just very, very young when this piecing took place. I have never even quilted a quilt at all but I purchased the Electric Quilt7 program and am slowly trying to learn how to quilt. I guess that's enough talking. I'll leave you alone now. And, thanks again for becoming my friend!!
Thank you! I did actually run both machines at the same time, for the first time last night. It was a good feeling to be able to get so much done (I did a very simple baby quilt on the new machine). I'm really wishing the NEW machine was computerized and I could use my OLD machine for all of my show/custom/fancier stuff. How sad is that?! Oh well. One day all of the kinks will (or better!) get worked out. Thank you for the advice and I'm glad the duo machine setup works for you. I hope it works for me too!
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. (Good choice for Christmas gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)
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?
