Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been sewing since I was 5 years old. Mostly making cloths. I always wanted to make a quilt but only got around to it about 6 years ago. Now I'm hooked and will be doing it for some time to come.
How many quilts have you made?
I have made aproximately 10 quilts.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love making quilts.
How long have you been a quilter?
I have quilted for about 6 years.
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Now I am doing patchwork but want to branch out into other methods of quilting such as kolidascope.
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?
