A mother of two girls, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my outstanding husband, and we have 4 ADORABLE grandchildren. I have recently discovered the quilting/sewing/embroidery saga :-) Currently working on a "Lucy (from Charlie Brown)" embroidery quilt for my granddaughter due in March. This Lucy quilt will be my first embroidery quilt and my first time to machine quilting. HELP :-)!!!
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.
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?
