Elaine Quehl 

 Elaine Quehl is an award-winning Canadian quilt artist, teacher, and dyer who specializes in colourful and intricately-stitched pieced and appliquéd art quilts. Her nature-themed quilts are recognizable for their drama, depth and contrast, exuberant colour and abundant texture. Elaine’s work has been juried into numerous exhibits at the national and international level and has been widely published, including 500 Art Quilts, and Art Quilt Portfolio: Natural World (upcoming 2012). A resident of Ottawa, she is in great demand as a teacher, and travels across the country delivering workshops and lectures to colleges, summer art programs, guilds, conferences and shops. Elaine is currently a part-time faculty member at the Haliburton School of the Arts, where she teaches in the summer arts program. She is recognized for her expertise in free-motion machine quilting, fabric dyeing, and many innovative techniques for creating original quilts. As a skilled dyer, Elaine's luscious hand-dyed fabrics are also in high demand, and she has been selling them across North America for the past 8 years.

Elaine grew up on a farm in Southern Ontario (Waterloo County) where she was surrounded by traditional quilts made by her great grandmothers, grandmothers, and mother. She began her quilting adventure in 1996 as a traditional quilter, but soon found herself seduced by art quilts and became devoted to developing her own artistic abilities in this medium.
