Helen was great to work with! She was quick to respond and made my quilt faster than I expected! The quilt was exactly what I asked for and was a perfect gift for my mother. I will definitely be using Helen in the future :)Mar 27, 2018VerifiedHelen K.'s reply
Thank you, Krystin, for your kind words! what a fun project and i loved the grays, whites, and blacks! I'm looking forward to working with you again! Blessings, Helen
Helen took my 26 year old baby blanket and turned it into a piece that I can have for the rest of my life. I had not been without my blanket for more than 2 days my entire life, she recognized my hesitations and completed my quilt in half the time as expected as she knew I was lost without it! Amazing lady and amazing artwork. Thank you Helen!Oct 24, 2017VerifiedHelen K.'s reply
I'm so glad you are happy with your 'new' quilt! I love making new quilts that use treasured pieces from the past! You made some great choices with the other fabrics, and it's gorgeous! Thank you for trusting me with your treasure!
My mother passed away when I was a little girl, and one of the things I've never been able to part with were her clothes. I wanted a quilt that reflected her vibrant personality and my own personal sense of style as well. Helen brought out that and more! She was so thoughtful of the memories of my mom and the importance of this project for me. Her amazing artistic perspective brought me to tears when she revealed the finished quilt. She kept me updated throughout the whole process, but still it was like seeing it for the first time. The whole experience was so meaningful. And Helen's craftsmanship is outstanding.Sep 8, 2017VerifiedHelen K.'s reply
Thank you so much for your kind words, Tess! I so enjoyed working on your quilt, and the process we walked through together to create the finished product! And thank you for trusting me with your mom's clothes that are actually memories that are now woven into your quilt ☺.
I have been more than thrilled with the quilts that Helen created using swatches from shirts that my mom had. My mom passed away five years ago, and I had Helen make a quilt for each of my 2 daughters for Xmas. I also had her make one for me! Helen is so creative, and it was very clear that she was excited to do this. She asked a lot of questions, making sure she was meeting and exceeding my expectations. Which she definitely did! I have already made plans with Helen to do our next project. Thank you Helen!Sep 7, 2017VerifiedHelen K.'s reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We will either exchange email or chat on the phone for me to obtain basic information about the project in order for me to provide an accurate quote. The client then brings the materials to my home, and we plan how the piece will look when it is finished...or I can take what the client has and create a design on my own.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My step-mom taught me to quilt, and was a great teacher, and I also subscribe to quilting magazines.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My step-mom was a master quilter, and took me under her wing as her student. I found that I loved the process of planning a piece, choosing a design and materials, and fabricating the piece. I've now retired, and am indulging my hobby full time!
