“A Magical History Tour” – ZOOM in on Elly’s rollicking journey through quilt making in our time: 1970 -2000. Elly will share many secrets and stories about the explosion of fabrics and designs, the ground-breaking tools and techniques, and the larger-than-life personalities.
She’ll show you some of the best and best-loved quilts of our lifetime. Bet many of you find this a trip down memory lane!
Though born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Eleanor Levie (rhymes with Chevy) has a personality that is less Baltimore Album and more Crazy Quilt.
Elly is a prolific and original quilter of quilted gifts such as pillows, table runners, and tote bags. As an art quilter, she’s as likely to use paint and dye and recycled packaging as she is to piece and quilt. That being said, she’s got a respected professional persona, too: From 1978 until 2012, she authored, edited, and produced books and has earned a reputation for gorgeous photo-styling, inviting descriptions, and accurate, easy-to-follow directions and patterns. Perhaps you’ve seen some of her books: Quilt Blocks Go Wild!, Unforgettable TOTE BAGS, Skinny Quilts & Table Runners I and II. All feature Elly’s original designs but also those by famous quilters you know and love. Previously, Elly produced the Rodale’s Successful Quilting Library series, authored Great Little Quilts, Country Living’s Country Quilts. American Quiltmaking: 1970-2000 is her history book, chock full of pictures of iconic quilts and the stories behind them.
