Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I'm a 69 year old. I live with my husband of 50 years, we have three children, 10 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. I have sewn, most of my life.Now i'm mostly into quilting. I also like to chrochet.
Happy birthday, Lynda~I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. It's a small town without a guild or any quilting groups, so I came here in hopes of meeting other quilters. At first it was hard meeting others, but once I joined some of the groups I met a LOT of people; everyone is so friendly and helpful!
I started quilting 6 years ago after having to take an early retirement. I had never learned how to sew, but I taught myself how to quilt using books and the internet. Once I made that first quilt I was hooked! Now I'm trying to teach myself how to sew, but I'm finding it to be much more difficult than quilting!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
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.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while 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?
