I was around quilting all my life but was never interested enough to learn. Now that I retired I really want to learn how. I have been making my Grandchildren quilts, and they really like then. I would like to make a real one.

Hi Joyce! Good to hear from you. Of course, we are open to members -- love to meet new quilters! This is a great group of quilters, maybe not as active as some online but if you need assistance, have a question, or just want to chat, you will find a bunch of sweet friends ready and willing to help. We also have gotten together in person from time to time in different parts of the state and it has been really fun to meet face to face. Please jump right in and introduce yourself.
Please do look into my books. It's pioneer women stories, along with area history around the Swedish Lindsborg KS area (Butter in the Well and Planting Dreams series) and my Trail of Thread series is based around Lawrence KS since my mother's side settled there in the 1850's. The Kennedy's in the last book series actually left Hamersville OH to move to Kansas.
I have over a dozen old quilts, most made by my great grandmother. We used them every winter, but most of them are still in good shape. It's neat to think that I'm using something that was made generations ago.
Have a nice Christmas holiday. So far no snow or ice here, but I think that will change tonight.
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 Quilterseries will be out by early 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?
