One of the countrys best-loved quilters shares her observations on the whys, wherefores, and wonders of applying needle to fabric and creating a world. A collection of amusing, moving, and invariably wise essays from Helen Kelleys beloved "Loose Threads" column (a favorite of readers of Quilters Newsletter since 1983), this treasury comes together much like the exquisite quilts Kelley creates: painstakingly pieced and stitched to convey not just a moment and its meaning, but the care and craft of quilting that lasts longer than thread holds out. Gathered in book form for the first time, these pieces form a lovely patchwork that will certainly keep.

Highly recommend this author to anyone interested in quilting and getting a good laugh. Be sure to read all three of her published books. You will not go wrong. She is very interesting and has such good humor.

I have all of her books w/ her collections of writing for the magazine. I would read one or two stories a day to savor them. Then I bought some of her books for gifts to give my quilting friends too. If you enjoyed Helen Kelley's work then these are a must to have.

This is a really good book! A MUST read!
  • Uris
Larger & slightly darker print than Every Quilt Tells a Story. That made it much easier for those of us over 60 to read! I thoroughly enjoyed both books.
  • Katius
I was unfamiliar with Helen Kelley's column. She writes interesting little columns with subtle humor - the subtitle "Stories to Keep Quilters in Stitches" in an overstatement. Ms. Kelley emphasizes hand applique and quilting and apparently does very elaborate quilts. For those of us looking for less subtle humor and a more slapdash approach to quilting and life, try "That Dorky Homemade Look" by Lisa Boyer.
  • Tejar
Like reading stories about quilts and quiltmakers. Really enjoyed all the stories. Shared the book with other family memers that like to quilt.

Helen Kelley is a gifted and happy author, telling her experiences in ways that make you just know you can pull off that quilting project you started because she did, no matter what!
