Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas.
I've moved cattle and buffalo on our farms, so enjoyed your post.
Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread book series is written in the form of letters sent back home when my ancestors traveled to 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?
Sounds like we have some things in common. Cows and quilts! :) We're a cow/calf/grass-yearling operation in southwest Nebraska. We have a daughter who has graduated from college. She lives and works in the Nebraska panhandle and is planning a small, June wedding. Our son is a sophomore at Chadron State and cowboys on larger ranches in the west in the summers. We told him to go see the country and find out how other outfits do things before he makes a decision whether or not to come back here.
Hope you enjoy the web site here. There are lots of specialty groups within the larger general site. Be sure to check out the Around the Quilt Frame hand quilting group. Lots of nice people to get to know.
