Profile Information

About Me
Prefer to be called Mags though Mum doesn't like it. Farmers daughter. Happily married to Alan and live in Wales. Back in work at last in a large medical centre close to home. I have also just completed the PTLLS city & guilds adult teacher training course with a view to teaching sewing skills, leading to patchwork, quilting and applique. I love life and live it to the limit. Enjoy Music, eating out,(when I can afford it) and meeting people. I'm fanatical about crafts, especially patchwork. I also have two allotments which are waterlogged at present, but spring is on the way :-). I belong to a large mixed choir - we go touring every year - this year we celebrate 35 years so we are going to Liege in Belgium for 5 days. Hubby comes too - its like a mini holiday with all your friends. When I'm away I am always looking for different fabrics and designs - cant get away from the quilting brain and usually by the time we're half way through I'm hankering to get back to the sewing machine with loads of new ideas. But with note book and smartphone always at hand I have a multitude of drawings and pictures to help me along when I get home. There never enough hours in the day to do all the things I want, and I keep saying "when I retire I will...............". Chance will be a fine thing, I think hubby has other ideas. :-)
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, machine quilting, crazy quilting, general sewing, knitting, gardening, garment sewing
My pets are awesome!
Gypsy - a Deerhound Greyhound cross, and Jaffa our Red Lored Amazon parrot

Hi mags, I have been in touch with carol d and the pattern is now out of print, so unable to get it, what a pity.  Having too much rain at the moment, hope it gets better, I'm having a charity afternoon tea in the garden here have sold 100 tickets....a lot of sandwiches to make.....but it's for a good cause Ttfn

Hi Mags,  What a lovely way to spend a holiday - singing - unfortunately that gift has passed me bye.  I love your work especially the waistcoats, do you have a pattern or where can I get one from?

I live in North Yorkshire, so can relate to the gardening and the countryside, just love it.  ttfn Marianne

Welcome to the Handquilt Group, Mags!  Looking forward to hearing what you're working on. I'm a little stalled out at the moment.  Last big handquilting project was a Double Wedding Ring made for our daughter as a wedding gift.

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 books in the Kansas Quilter series will be out mid 2014. 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!

Linda Hubalek
