Anelie Belden "Dresden Dance"
Stroll along memory lane and experience the history of the Dresden Plate Design. This trunk show is a collection of quilts which represent traditional Dresden’s from years ago and includes Thoroughly Modern Dresden designs by Anelie Belden.
Anelie Belden is a nationally known instructor, quilt and pattern designer, and author of “Thoroughly Modern Dresden.” Her book features a unique "stitch-n-flip" method for making Dresden Quilts. Anelie has taught at the Empty Spools Seminar in Asilomar, the Houston Quilt Festival and at quilt guilds throughout the USA. She has appeared on “The Quilt Show” with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Her newest designs have been featured in Quiltmaker Magazine.
Coming in October, Robin Long will present a program entitled "Strip-Pieced Mariners Compass".
