Helen Robinson, Quilt Artist
Website: Sew Kind of Wonderful
Helen admits to a little craziness when it comes to things she loves! Some of her loves include 51 recipe books, 64 pairs of shoes (and counting), five kids, one adorable grandchild, seven sewing machines, bolts and bolts of fabric and 100s of fat quarters, and one very supportive husband! Helen has been sewing since 1973 when she made a pair of pale green polyester pants in 4-H club. She began quilting in 1997 and fell in love with the entire process of design, fabric shopping, piecing and quilting! Six years ago Helen bought a longarm Gammill classic and fell in love with quilting all over again because she could put the finishing flourish on her piles and piles of quilt tops that were waiting for that last layer of love. Three years ago she began working with her sister Jenny and Sew Kind of Wonderful creating fresh new contemporary quilts using the Quick Curve Ruler. The curved piecing and contemporary designs in their work has made quilting fun, quick and easy. They have more 40 patterns, which use the Quick Curve Ruler and their first book, Contemporary Curved Quilts, was published in May 2014.
