Hi Montika, was wondering if you were from Wisconsin because of your Greenbay Packer throw.  You have lots of very nice quilts. I see you are from Junction City, KS. You must be a fan. Go Pack!!

Sure, I will be your friend! I've enjoyed your quilts so much when you post them. They are always eye candy!

have been meaning to pop in here and tell you i love your new avatar. sometimes i miss it when you post your quilts, but i have found no need to fret as they attract enough attention i'll see when someone posts a comment. i really love your designs and color useages.

Thanks for letting me know you saw my quilt at the museum! I haven't heard a thing about it since it went to live there. I'm sorry they didn't have the back visible, because a lot of people prefer the back to the front. I hope to get down there and visit it myself sometime soon! Thanks again!

i wish we didn't live so far apart ... would love to spend time with you as you create your amazing quilts. i am such a fan of your design work.

The fabrics are sponge painted. I use procian dyes and usually have a pallet of around 30-60 colors working. I sponge the dyes onto fabric, put them in a plastic bag to cure and then wash out. There are no repeats. What I'm aiming for is a landscape with lights, shadows, and a world all its own.

I have a book I developed to teach this out of . It's called the Dye Day Workbook. I publish it myself. It's available on my site at http://www.ellenanneeddy.com/store-detail.php?cat=2&ID=2

Let me know if I can help further. My email is at ellenanneeddy@gmail.com
