Ellen Peterson

Fiber Artist / Quilter

Ellen is a local Cape Codder. Born and raised in Orleans, she started sewing at age 6, at her Grandmother’s knee. Her “paintbox” was her scrap bin, and thousands of walks along Orleans Town Cove inspired her color sense.

Quilting became her passion in the early 1980’s. She taught Nauset Adult education for 10 years and has travelled all over New England teaching at Quilt Guilds.

From 2005-2010, she owned Cozy Home Fabrics, a quilt shop on Cape Cod. Cozy Home Fabrics became Cozy Home Cape Cod when she started selling the quilts that she had designed and made. Her appliqué baby quilt designs are unique. All her pieces are one of a kind. She uses only the highest quality cottons and batiks in her work.

Custom orders are always welcome.
