Welcome to Helle-May Designs!

 Traditional Designs Sewn with Unique Inspiration!

      Helle-May Cheney

I discovered my passion for quilting just after my first son was born in 1999. Quilting became a way to relax and provided a productive outlet for my creativity.  In September of 2008, both boys started school full time and I began using my new found free time to figure out a way to share my passion and designs with fellow quilters! Follow the journey of each new quilt I design and then take your own journey with the pattern.

During these past 20 years, my quilts have been exhibited across the country with Hoffman Challenge travelling collections, at AQS shows and at Quilts, Inc. shows. I have also been fortunate to have had my quilts published in magazines you may have read: American Quilter Magazine, Quilters Newsletter, Quilt It for Christmas, and Quilter’s Home. Maybe you have already seen my work?!

The quilt in the background is Treasure ChestIt was the first of my quilts to be noticed and start me on my great adventure!
