Welcome to the LOAQ (Love Of Art Quilts) group! We all have learned so much from each other over, as well as having an opportunity to share things that we're excited about learning. When I joined the group 5 years ago I hadn't the foggiest on where to begin, and just jumped in with both feet. Have fun and I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
Welcome! This is a really great site. You'll find there's something for everyone and lots of inspiration. So glad you joined us in the Love of Art Quilts group. Quite a few of us are also part of the ACEO/ATC/ Post Card group, Techniques 4 Textiles (a great addition to the LOAQ group!) and the Thread Painting group! We're also very chatty! If you have any questions about ANYthing (even things unrelated to quilting! lol) don't hesitate to ask. Someone always either knows the answer or knows where to find it! And we swap from time to time, too, which is a lot of fun. : )
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 books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out mid 2014. 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?
