Helen's Profile

About

I've been quilting since I was a teenager and publishing and copyrighting my own designs since 1995. I have a stellar reputation for the extensiveness of my machine quilting. I use a Bernina, and this is my favorite part of the quilting process. You will not find a "meandered" quilt from PineTree Lodge. I love to use variegated threads as much as possible. I usually use Superior's King Tut, Sulky Blendables, Aurifil and/or Weeks Dyeworks. Be sure to click on the closeup photos to see the stitching details.

I love to work with all color combinations - northwoods, brights, pastels, novelty prints and reproductions. I really enjoy making things for the seasons and holidays. Look around - you'll be amazed and intriqued at the variety. I use only Warm & Natural or Warm & White for the batting. I love the way it gets softer and softer each time it is laundered…

Bindings are stitched by machine to the top of the quilt and then turned to the back and hand stitched. A single binding is used on small items intended for table use, to reduce the bulk. A double binding is used for strength and durability on larger pieces such as lap and bed size quilts. If you would like a hanging sleeve on an item that does not already have one, contact me and one will be added after purchase, at no extra charge. Quilts will be pre-laundered, if requested.

I've been teaching quilting classes and workshops for 20+ years. I've published 70+ patterns and 6 books which may be seen on my website www.pinetreelodge.net

I've tried to be fair with shipping costs. I will cheerfully refund any over payment. If there are shipping cost questions, please convo.

I am living my dream in the northwoods. Deerwood is a small, resort town of 500. There are more people here in the summer. My shop banner is the view from my sewing machine - I sew to the sound of the loons or lake ice cracking in the winter. I'm also seriously addicted to knitting socks, reading books and throwing tennis balls for "the girls".
