Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Just started quilting a few years ago. I like to take classes and learn all kinds of new quilting styles. Have over a dozen tops in various stages of completion and am trying to tack down "my" style of quilting to finish them up.
How many quilts have you made?
2 finished; 10+ in progress
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I want to make them.
How long have you been a quilter?
Started in 2004
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Like them all but if I have to choose one - paper piecing
Why do you quilt?
I'm not "creative" but this appears to work for me.
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.
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?
