Tying the Knot, the first historical fiction book in the Kansas Quilter series follows Kizzie Pieratt as she receives trunks and quilts from her relatives to use on her family’s wagon trip from Kansas to the Indian Territory. Each chapter is like a short story, where Kizzie learns about the significant moves previous generations have made for their families, just like she is about to do next.
This book series shares the stories and photos of Linda Hubalek’s pioneer ancestors that homesteaded in Kansas in the 1800s. The Kansas Quilter series continues the family stories written in Hubalek’s Trail of Thread series.
A bonus section tells the “Story behind the story” of the Kansas Quilter series and features photos of some of the quilts that the Pieratt family made.
