Fiber artist Anelie Belden began her sewing career working in the fashion industry which gave her the skills to begin her quilting journey. After owning her own quilt store and teaching quilting in her area she began designing quilts. She has taken the traditional Dresden Quilt design and created a new updated Dresden Designs which are featured in her book titled “Thoroughly Modern Dresden”. Not only are the designs modern, they are constructed using a breakthrough piecing technique to improve speed and accuracy. Belden has recorded a program demonstrating her technique with “The Quilt Show”, starring Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims.
She has also taught at Quilt Guilds throughout the country, Houston Quilt Festival, with Empty Spools Seminars in Asilomar, California, multiple workshops with Quilt-n-Cruise and Many Guilds in the United States. An accomplished quilter, Belden has also had Her quilts featured in publications such as "The Art of the Quilt Calendar" and Quiltmaker's Magazine.
