Vanessa , the signature quilt is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter's quiltville site. It is called Fourth of July .


I had to extend the quilt as I had more signatures so it was 12 by 10. I wanted the signatures all to going in the right direction.

hi  vanessa! when that happens, it's usually a piece of lint stuck in the bobbin case. take the case out and run a stick pin under the  flap on the side of the case. i mean the spot where the thread  comes out. make a few passes with a pin to be sure it's cleaned out really well. also clean out the bobbin area very well. sometimes it's the tiniest little piece of lint that causes the biggest problems. i hope that helps you!

hey Vanessa I noticed you are in Moose Jaw!! do you have snow yet? what are you currently working on? I am working on many many projects, not as heavy into quilting due to trying to improve my health with exercise, am going to the gym and running up and down the stairs alot with my Chihuahua, he is not crazy about our snow and cold, doesn't like  a jacket on...Crossfit and Olympic weight I will have to see what that is we are doing circuits with body weight and small weights and machines...I hate cardio...but it is into the routine so it doesn't feel like routine...

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.

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 book The Kansas Quilter will be out 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
