Ellen Anne Eddy is an internationally known fiber artist whose wall art goes beyond the traditional concept of quilting. Fish, bugs, birds, and frogs are found throughout her art, blending her dreams and vision with the natural world. She uses hand-dyed fabrics, lames, machine embroidery, cut-away applique, and layered sheers to create the illusion of flames, water, and mist in her work.
The chapters guide the reader step-by-step with everything from “Looking at Quilts” to “Rehabilitating Troubled Quilts.”
The gallery of quilts features both full images and detail shots. The photographs are bright and colorful, the illustrations clear and helpful. Ellen’s quilts are divided into several series and themes, with each section offering her inspiration for that theme. It is Ellen’s hope that by sharing her journey as an artist she can inspire her readers in their artistic journey.
