Author Helen SquireAbout the Author

Helen Squire says that when she was asked to join the teaching mission to South Africa with Linda Taylor, Laurel Barrus and Hari Walner, she asked, "Why me? I'm a traditional hand quilter and you guys are known for longarm, mid-arm and domestic machine quilting."

The answer was apparent as the trip became a life-altering experience and a reaffirmation of Helen's longheld quilting philosophy and joy of teaching. No matter which method of quilting you use, good design and appropriately selected quilting patterns are what make the difference.

An entrepreneur since 1973 when she started Quilt-In: Lessons - Supplies - Designs, Helen has been an active participant in the growth of the quilt industry as a designer, lecturer, teacher and television consultant.

Perhaps best known for her Dear Helen quilting pattern books—this book is the eighth in the series—she is also the author of A Quilter's Garden: From Plants of the Holy Land.

Now retired from her position as vice-president of sales and marketing for the American Quilter's Society, she is as busy as ever and still lives in Paducah, Kentucky, Quilt City USA. Lucky her!
