Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
When I retired, I was looking for a hobby, and decided to try my hand at quilting. I've been lucky enough to find a great quilt shop, and also live in New England where I have a good amount of other great quilt shops and "Hops" all around!
How many quilts have you made?
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Making meaningful toppers, and machine quilting them
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 book The Kansas Quilter will be out this fall. 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?
