Faculty » Anita Eaton
Anita has been doing various forms of needlework since she was a child, but her greatest interest has always been quilting. She learned from her grandmothers, and from studying many books about quilting history, design, and techniques.
A background in art and design was the basis for expanding her her interests from more traditional quilts to art quilts. Her understanding of color and balancing values was of great help while she worked in a quilt shop helping customers choose fabric for their quilts.
Anita received a BFA from the University of Minnesota . She uses her strong background in color and design to make quilts as well as in her paintings and pastels.
