What special trips and friendship you and Nancy must have had. I'm glad you can remember her through your quilting.
You got Kansas right on your description, and I hope you enjoyed it. Actually the terrain is different in many parts of the state, from the high flat plains in western Kansas to the rolling hills of the eastern part. I hope someday you can come back to explore more.
Because you're interested in old trails and pioneer women, I think you would enjoy my Trail of Thread series (just click on the link), which follows my ancestors from Kentucky to Kansas, and my other ancestors that came from Ohio to Kansas, and ended up being neighbors and in-laws.
I better get back to today's project, so please enjoy your day!
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?
