Anelie Belden
Thoroughly Modern Dresden

Fiber artist Anelie Belden of Anelie’s Quiltworks 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 Volcano, CA, she began designing quilts. She has taken the traditional Dresden Quilt design and created new and 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, and with Empty Spools Seminars in Asilomar, California. An accomplished quilter, Belden has also had her quilts featured in publications such as "The Art of the Quilt Calendar" and Quiltmaker's Magazine.
