Short Story: I’ve been quilting almost 10 years.  I love to do other things too like cross stitch, knit, and other things but my primary craft is Quilting and I love it.  I am married with 2 kids: girl (14) and boy (10).  I run a small business in Los Angeles.  I enjoy listening to podcasts about quilting and crafting.  I’m an LA Clippers fan and regularly go to as many games as possible.  I’m pretty open so email me or comment if you have any questions.

  1. Thanks for the follow! I thought I already had followed you, but alas, I failed! That was then…I am following now and like the “whatever catches my fancy” concept!

  2. Hi Melanie,
    You left a comment on my blog, asking a question, but I couldn’t answer you, as you show as a no-reply blogger. You were asking about the source of the pattern for La Passacaglia. It is from a book called Millefiori Quilts by a lady named Willyne Hammerstein.
