Overview

Showcasing the art as well as the sewing machine techniques, this compendium reveals the work of the nature-inspired art quilt work of Ellen Anne Eddy. Her wall art goes beyond the traditional concept of quilting; she includes fish, bugs, birds, and frogs 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 gallery of quilts features both full images and detailed shots, and Ellen's quilts are divided into several series and themes, with each section offering her inspiration for that theme.
