Hi, I am a lady who is married 51 years, with 3 grown children and 3 grown grandchildren, all are nearby except my youngest grandson who is in the Marines and always on my mind! I've been retired since 1999 from work as a secretary and never have enough time to do all the things I'd like to do. Quilting has been my main hobby since 1998, and knitting is what I'm working on just now. I also enjoy embroidery, reading, cooking/baking for my family, and bible study groups. I used to enjoy gardening, but that is too hard these days, so I stick with the indoor activities.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, hand quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, knitting, other, general crafts
My pets are awesome!
Jasper the cat, and two zebra finches who have no individual names, just call them "Tooties" as they chatter all day.

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 books in the The Kansas Quilterseries will be out late 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?
