    I saw her work, and fell in love with the Meadows of Black Forest, seen online at this site:

    I have not been able to find any other information about Ellen Heck patterns, which were available at one point.

    Does anyone here have any information?

    Thanks!

    the only thing i have ever heard of her is that she's a printmaker (i didn't know she's also a quilter - is this the same one?) somewhere in california.

    did you google her? or wikipedia?

    the other thing i know is that if you attempt this quilt nobody will see you for the next 100 years.

    -edit- i just wondered, are you sure this is a quilt? could it be a print?

    Hi,

    I have no idea what her job might be. I read that she's done a lot of patterns based on botanical prints, so maybe it is the same person.

    Yes, that is a quilt, it is from the Road to California 2004 Winners website:

    Thanks,
    Connie

    Sorry

    I can't help - but I have to say ~~WOW~~ the workmanship is amazing.

    Other than the suggestion made by Butterflywing to google her.
