What is your craft of choice? Quilting

How long have you been doing this? Sewing – 30 years – Quilting – 4 years

What inspired you to start? My kids grew up and no longer needed me to take them to all of their practices and after school activities. I found myself bored in the evenings and have always loved sewing, fabric and color, so I started quilting as my hobby.

Do you work with your own designs or enjoy patterns? Mainly patterns – I get a lot of inspiration from Instagram posts and that keeps me buying patterns and participating in quilt a longs.

One of Melissa's recent projects is this colorful Thrive quilt designed by Suzy Quilts

What is your favorite notion? Besides a rotary cutter and rulers which I consider essential, I am in love with a Hera Marker. I do all of my own quilting on my sewing machine, so it really helps me keep a straight line. 

What is your favorite (fabric or yarn)? Definitely fabric.

Do you enjoy music, audiobooks, or movies in the background while you craft? I usually listen to Amazon music while I sew, and it gives me a lot of time to think, reflect and plan. 

Finish this sentence: #ImSewStitchCraft because I am obsessed with color and love their bright fabrics!
