Author, pattern designer, and national quilting instructor Beth Helfter has one rule about quilting - it's supposed to be fun. With that in mind, along with her company motto of "Inspired Designs, Relaxed Attitude," Beth brings visionary designs and techniques to her patterns and exuberance and encouragement to the classroom. As a mostly scrappy designer, Beth prefers to dig into her stash to create designs and patterns that appeal to her senses of color and value, using as many different fabrics as possible. Her penchant for scraps and her need to use as many fabrics as possible in her quilts led her in 2017 to develop the Accordion Sewn HSTs™ method of creating half-square triangles that don't have a match and yet waste no fabric. Beth resides in Pepperell MA with her husband and three daughters. She's visited guilds and taught at national and regional quilt shows, and never tires of the ah-ha moments and banter of a classroom full of quilters.
