I've been quilting off and on since 1976. I also sew garments, costumes, home dec, and various craft items. I love fabric, thread, and the entire process. I don't do hand quilting although my first project was a hand quilted king-size comforter. Yes, I was naive enough not to know any better. LOL.Time has taken its toll though and arthritis prevents me from hand quilting anymore. Besides, machine quilting means that projects get done faster--so I can make more projects!

Sharon, Thanks for the comment on the DWR. I am starting to feel the same as you - it may be several years before she gets her wedding quilt! I'm still in the marking stage and feeling the pressure to get it done and basted so I can start in on the quilting. She would really like it done by the wedding so she can display it at the reception, but I'm not sure that will happen. I'm just glad she appreciates the hand work. She has no sympathy for me, because she gave me notice about 4 years ago that this was what she wanted for her future wedding. :)
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?
