Meet the Author

Helen Kelley came by her love of fabrics quite naturally. During the 1930s, her father was a management consultant in a Georgia textile mill. Her mother was a talented needlewoman who taught Helen to sew at a tender age. From these two people, Helen inherited her father's tiny pick glass (a lens for counting threads), her mother's Rose Wreath wedding quilt, and an appreciation for meticulous detail. Studying antique quilts became a passion for Helen as she read the stories of early quiltmakers. Each old quilt is a testimonial to one of those quilters. The fabrics, patterns, and styles of old quilts hold hints of those earlier times. If you look closely at your old quilt, finger it, and listen carefully. Perhaps it has a tale to tell you, too.
