Ellen Anne Eddy is an internationally know fiber artist whose wall tapestries transcend the traditional concept of quilting. Using hand-dyed fabrics, sheers, laces, lame’s and machine embroideries she creates the illusions of water, mist and flame.
Ellen’s designs blend scenes from the natural world with her own dreams and visions. Her masterful fusion of techniques and materials describe life in micro and macrocosm. Fish and bugs, frogs and birds weave in and out of her quilts, serving as a media for both social commentary and personal observation.
The series of quilts featured in Thread Magic offers a rich visual treat for quilters. A comprehensive technical section provides information that will enable quilters of all skill levels to add Ellen’s techniques to their own creative repertoires.
