Anelie Belden About the Author

After enjoying a San Francisco-based career in the fashion industry, Anelie moved with her family to the rural town of Volcano, California. Here she and her husband, Kevin, settled and raised their three children, Joshua, Amilia and Christopher. During these years, Anelie had time to use her sewing background and learned to quilt. She was a quick study and soon owned a quilt store and was teaching others.

Before, long, Anelie began designing quilts and producing quilt patterns. She began organizing quilt retreats, writing a block-of-the-month series for the local paper, and appearing on the local television station, educating the community about quilts.
