I have been quilting for over 10 years. Stopped for a few because of hand problems. I'm trying to get my love back.
I don't have a quilting group near me. I like to get my joy of sewing back. My grandmather was a appliquer, my mom sewed cloths. I love baking and cooking. Bread is at the top of my list.
Welcome to Quilt with Us. I am a beginner, very wet behind the ears. My main love is weaving. I dabble in crochet, but nothing fancy. I am in the process of making my youngest son a quilt for his birthday. In fact, heading out in a few to get the fabric.
I am a wife, mother of 4 sons, and grandmother of 1 grandson. We have 2 dogs (a Siberian Husky almost 13 y/o, and a part Rat Terrier), one cockatiel, and a tank of fish. My husband is retired due to blindness. I still work.
You can check out my photo album of all my work, for good or bad. LOL
Hi! I do hope you find you can get back your love of quilting without the hand pain. It is so wonderful to be able to just touch and use the fabric and sew as you wish! Take sometime and check out the site and you will find so many wonderful photos and people here..... Everyone is kind, friendly, great listeners and teachers also! Have a great day!
Hello from Kansas. We're having a sunny cold day. Only had one snow so far and it has melted. I guess I need to get brave and bring out some of my great grandmothers old quilts and use them again. We did all winter long as kids...but then they were tucked away from we bought blankets...and now the old quilts are stashed away.
I know about building a house..as in WE too...we're almost done after two years. Been living in a constant state of sawdust for 6 months (moved in then). The saw is supposed to leave the living room this Tuesday because the carpet is being laid on Wednesday...and we have a houseful of people coming in to stay with us on Saturday for my dad's 90th birthday party. But..no kitchen at all yet and only one bathroom...But it will be so nice when we're finally done and can relax and enjoy it!
So no quilting or baking for me for a while, but hope to get back to both soon.
We have Gray Cat- a stray that adopted us. 10 or 11 years old (we're not sure). He has a mind of his own since it lived by himself for a year or two, but occasionally sits on my lap. Actually he's become a momma's boy after the move. It was a little traumatic for him...especially the saws, etc.
Have a good week. I need to get back to the sawdust. :)
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?
