Fiber artist Anelie Belden began her sewing career working in the fashion industry which gave her the skills to begin her Quilting career. After owning her own quilt store and teaching quilting in her area she began to design quilts. This lead her to taking the traditional Dresden Quilt design and creating a new updated Dresden Design 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 and with Empty Spools Seminars in Asilomar, California. An accomplished quilter, Belden has also had Her quilt “Amazon Horizons” featured in the 2012 “The Art of The Quilt” Calendar published by Orange Circle Studio.
