More About Elly
Though born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Elly's personality is less Baltimore Album and more Crazy Quilt. Lucky to have learned from a wide array of experts as she produced her many quilting books, she brings their diverse and innovative techniques -- as well as her own eclectic ideas and designs to all of her trunk shows and workshops. Mission: Getting beginning and experienced quilters to try something new, quilt outside the box, and have a lot of fun!

Elly has suggested that as part of "Show and Tell" portion of the meeting, that members consider sending in photos of some of their “older” or “first quilts”...i.e. back in the day projects, when the tools of our trade were not as plentiful.
