AuthorAbout the Authors

Helen Frost began teaching quiltmaking in 1974 and has taught at guilds and conferences across the country and in Europe. In 2001 she was honored as one of the 'Women Who Challenged Quiltmaking' by International Quilt Festival. Although she is best know for her innovative strip-piecing methods, her first love is hand appliqué. She is also a hand quilter, and next on her list to quilt is a top that has been basted since 1981!

Helen is an amateur magician and incorporates tricks for quilters in her act. She and her husband live in Tucson, Arizona, and have a son and three daughters. They share their home with a dog and a rabbit, and too many cats.

Catherine Wilcox Skow is a fourth-generation Arizonan and very proud of her family's part in the state's history. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in consumer sciences. She and her husband, Doug, have two college-aged children, Michael and LeeAnn.

The view from her sewing room includes hummers, squirrels, quail, coyote, and the occasional bobcat. Though quilting takes up most of Cathy's time, she loves entertaining her friends and family at her home. She also enjoys gardening, baking, and riding on the back of her husband's Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Her motto for life is "Choose joy!"
