Welcome Quilter Friend!

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?

Happy quilting and reading!

 Just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP.

Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of quilters that are doing several different quilts, the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine’s, as she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at

To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either Batik or 100% cotton at today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project and the newest TWISTER quilts. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
