It’s here! Dandelion Wine is in print!

Just went to bring in the mail (and the trash can) and what do you know – there’s the October/November issue of Quilter’s Home Magazine.  Somehow, I managed to wait until I got into the house before I even opened it!  There on page 47 was a picture of Dandelion Wine in all its glory! Can you tell I’m excited?!  Mark even gave it a nice little paragraph to introduce it.  The only small issue I have is that my blog site (  is listed instead of the website  But I think that most quilters are computer savvy enough to get where they need to go!

A few weeks ago, Mark asked Kindred Quilts, the local quilt shop in Clinton, NJ, to kit all three of the quilts in the magazine, so if you’re interested, please go to the store or log onto  If you actually go, it’s a cute little shop in a very walkable, historic town. Perfect for a Saturday afternoon in fall!

Oh yeah – and don’t forget to pick up an issue of Quilter’s Home!  When you’re done looking at Dandelion Wine, there’s quite a lot of interesting reading!


News from Helle-May Designs

I can’t believe it’s been almost exactly a year since I decided to launch into the world wide web!  I have truly learned a lot in the past year.  It’s been frustrating at times – me vs. the computer – but very satisfying when I either finally mastered a new software or figured out how to get that darn photo to look right on the screen!  To honor the anniversary, I am having a Free Shipping sale for the next two months. (and no, I haven’t increased prices!)   

It’ll be interesting to see what year two will bring!


P.S.  I just finished putting together the center of Driftwood.  I’ve put an updated picture on it’s page on the website.  Check it out!
