Ann Turley

I have been the proud parent of one or more basset hounds for at least 30 years and identify with their slow and deliberate ways. BUT – when necessary they become clowns, divas and king of their realms. I often wish I could be like one of them, free to express myself, make others laugh and not care who is watching. Thanks for your inspiration, Mortie and Beau!

About Helen Gregory

Helen Gregory is the managing editor for Quilting Arts Magazine and Cloth Paper Scissors. She has been quilting for years; however, her very first quilt, a hand-pieced Grandmother's Flower Garden design, is still not finished! Since joining the QA/CPS team, Helen's stash has grown to include many mixed-media items. Basically, Helen has crossed over and sees artful possibilities in, well, everything. Having worked for years in the quilting industry, both as an editor and in marketing, she is absolutely thrilled to be part of the QA team. Like everyone on the QA/CPS staff, she wears many hats, and was recently mistaken for Pokey's personal assistant during the taping of QA TV Season 4.

  1. My best friend owns or should I say is owned by a Basset.  The dog is such a goof! You really captured the basset spirit!  Shelby does not understand slow but definatly has  her deliberate ways LOL

  2. We have also had bassets for the last 20 years. Your description of them is awesome. My current basset is King of  the Couch (don’t panick he has a set of steps) and a Master Clown when he wants a belly rub. Thanks for sharing your talent!
