About Me
Author of Mosaic Tile Quilts.
The quilts in this book were inspired by mosaic tile floors found in Costa Rican churches, schools and homes which date from 1888 to 1936. The floors follow the mosaic tile tradition used in Europe which often have designs very similar to what we see in quilts. Around 1900 Costa Rican craftsmen began creating and designing their own tiles. There are many similarities between traditional mosaic tile floors and quilts. The tile artist and the quilter both create using molds or quilt patterns while paying special attention to color combinations and lines. Tile floors and quilts are often constructed using a four-block design. 9 quilt projects including full-size quilts, quilt wallhangings and a table runner represent the beauty of this tradition. Complete step-by-step how-to, clear, concise easy to follow instructions, full color throughout and beautifully photographed.

Sorry it took so long to accept the friendship request. I didn't notice it until this morning. Are you under a lot of snow?  You have quite the winter out your way. We should have snow here, but so far it has evaded us this year. I think it all headed out East. Now I need to go check out your book. It sounds great.

Happy New Year Patricia!!  I was looking around and decided to check out your profile.  You are a very interesting person.   I will have to see if I can find your book here in Penna.  I love your quilts.  Do you ever get to Penna???   I've been in Wisconsin many years ago.   It has lots of hills and mountains like Penna.  I made my Ex. stop at all the landmarks that had some kind of reading on them.  Their is a lot of history dating back to the Civil War.  I think my Ex. was getting tired of it.  lol

Well,you have lived in Wisconsin for a long time! I really like your book. I had read about it on the publisher's newsletter. Wisconsin is a really scenic state and they keep up their country roads better than any other state, so it is easy to get around and see the really pretty spots like Devil's Lake and Rib Mountain. Before I retired,I did travel nursing and did assignments in Wausau and Waupun.

Hi Patricia,  nice chat we had,  I liked you at FB,  how do I get a signed book?

Have fun on your trip back to Costa Rica.  I am sure you will have a good time reconnecting with family and friends.  Travel safe.

Welcome Patricia.  I was living in Iowa when I joined this group, but moved to
Arkansas 3 years ago.  I have met with about 20 or more of the members a couple of times.  This is a caring, sharing group of women.  We have some extremely talented quilters and long-armers.  Many of us are not quite as good, but still love making the quilts and enjoying the process.

We had an AFS student many years ago from Costa Rica.  We have kept in touch with her and she has visited us once.  Her father is a chicken vet and studied in Iowa.  Small world.

Again, welcome.

Welcome,Patricia!  Tell me how you ended up in Cedarburg! Do you like snow?

Look around at the tabs at the top to find people to meet, things to see, etc. Lots of people post photos of their quilting projects.

Nice looking, and neat that you could work Costa Rica history into the quilt book.

Hi Patricia,

I liked you on Facebook yesterday. Enjoy the site. It's fun to see everyone's projects.

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.

It's nice to meet another author!

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 Quilter series 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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek
