Helen R. Scott

Helen R. Scott

Some of Helen Scott's earliest memories are of playing under her grandmother's large quilting frames. There she worked on her quilts and those made for her daughters. When Helen started quilting in 1960, she chose appliqué. Having painted with oils, pastels, and watercolors for many years, Helen found that appliqué was like painting with cloth. She started teaching embroidery appliqué and quilting classes in 1982. Using her original designs, she held the classes at various places, including the Southern Ohio Museum; Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio; and Ohio University, Athens. She has made well over 50 quilts, using her own designs and a variety of subjects, as well as 14 theme quilts and wallhangings from the old-fashioned "Bonnet Girls: Gentlewomen" pattern series.
