Quilt Retreat!!

I just came home a few hours ago from my first Quilt Retreat! I have to say, I didn't get much done as in completing a quilt. But I did have fun and met a lot of great people. Who I hope to continue to become better friends. Thank you Andi for inviting me to the retreat! I will definitely will be back next year!…

Today I went to a Quilt class. It's called Beginner Quilter Club at A Touch of Amish store. It was good, I liked it and learned a few things. The best thing about the class was it was FREE. Yep you hear me right FREE and they offer it once a month!! I can't beat that. It's like a BOM type deal. Oh you don't have to bring anything but the BOM from the previous month! And on top of that,,,, you don't make…

Have you ever entered one of your quilts in a show?

I went to my first ever quilt show this past weekend. I loved it. One of my quilt guilds is having a quilt show this fall. They had asked me (along with everyone else) to make a quilt for the show. I am not sure if I am good enough to do a…

Welcome Quilter Friend!

Love your New Year list- especially # 2 and # 4!

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?

Happy quilting and a blessed New Year!

Welcome to Chicagoland Quilters!

My name's Andi and I started this group many moons ago.  We are not very active but I keep promising to post every once in a while.  Where in Chicago are you?.  I grew up around Archer and Kedzie, and DH and I owned a house around Lawndale and 51st.  We moved to the Oak Lawn/Alsip area about 15 years ago,  I still consider myself a city gal.

Talk soon again.
