HUBALEK: THE KANSAS QUILTER

This year's Millfest Quilt Show, May 4-5 in Lindsborg, features historic quilts from the family of Linda Hubalek. This author wrote the Butter in the Well and Planting Dreams books series, which are about the Swedish immigrants that homesteaded in central Kansas during the 1860s. The antique quilt display will be featured in the Swedish Pavilion during Millfest weekend. These quilts, made from 1830s through the 1950s, were made by Linda Hubalek’s ancestors. The quilt show is sponsored by the McPherson Quilt Guild.

Hubalek kicks off Millfest weekend with a lecture about the quilts and her books at 3:30 on Friday, May 3rd in the Swedish Pavilion in Heritage Square across from the Old Mill. Hubalek is currently working on a new book, The Kansas Quilter, featuring her great-grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she crafted.

Author Hubalek writes books about the pioneer women who made Kansas their home. Her books are published by Butterfield Books Inc. and they include the Trail of Thread, the Butter in the Well, and the Planting Dreams series. Founded in 1994, Butterfield Books Inc. publishes and promotes books about Kansas and its pioneer history. The company is located in Lindsborg, Kansas, known as “Little Sweden USA.”
