While making quilts is a priority for Helen Kelley, her primary passion is quilters themselves. And this love of quilters comes through in "Helen Kelley’s Joy of Quilting", her contribution to the "universal quilter’s support group." Through these entertaining and lighthearted yarns, you’ll experience Helen’s insights into the warmth and enjoyment of quilting. Join her as she delights in the support and enthusiasm of fellow quilters; experience her pride in accepting a gift of "quilting rubble" and finding a home for it; smile at how she can "read" fellow quilters through their pile of old quilt blocks and scraps and pieces; see a bit of yourself in the humble way she admits to improperly cutting and preparing fabrics; and chuckle as she candidly describes her messy workroom. About the Author: Helen Kelley’s "Loose Threads" column has been a favorite of readers of "Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine" since 1983. She is the author of Voyageur Press’s "Every Quilt Tells a Story", as well as "Scarlet Ribbons: An Indian Technique for Today’s Quilters", and "Dating Quilts: From 1600 to the Present". Kelley’s by-line has appeared in a variety of quilting publications, and her prize-winning quilts have been the subject of numerous photo essays. Her "Renaissance Quilt" was chosen as one of the 100 Best Quilts of the Twentieth Century.
