Sew and Tell Friday – Melissa Corry Edition

I love having quilty friends, and I especially love it when they make such amazing and inspiring quilts! When I visited with my friend Melissa Corry on my way to Sewing Summit a couple of months ago, I took so many pictures of her fun quilts that I barely had room to fit them in one post. So I thought I’d share more of them with you today.

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time Quilt – My Favorite!

It’s always fun to see how other quilters decorate their home with quilts and Melissa did not disappoint. She displayed them on walls, tables, and beds throughout her cozy home.

Bed QuiltI love the combo of green and brown, and especially how she tucked her bed quilt into the frame. It’s very clean looking. See those fantastic alumni quilts folded at the edge of the bed? Check out her detailed blog tutorial on how to achieve precise layered applique by machine.

Doesn’t every sweet little girl deserve a pretty quilt on her bed? And don’t forget the boys!

Bed Quilts

Start the day with a freshly made bed!

I arrived pretty early at Melissa’s that day and was impressed that nearly every bed was made up with a quilt on top! (She did know that I was coming…)

And who can resist a yummy pile of quilts stacked up so nicely?!

In Your Neighborhood

In Your Neighborhood Quilt

This was my other favorite quilt of the day, Melissa’s In Your Neighborhood quilt. Bold graphic design really appeals to me. In fact, she’s teaching this one at a fun event coming up next year, the Small Town Quilt Show. I will definitely have to attend!

Melissa is truly a kindred spirit. She loves machine quilting her quilts (almost) as much as I do, and has shared many amazing videos of the process here on her blog.

Thanks Melissa, for sharing your hospitality and your quilts with me that day!

    I’m making your chevron quilt for one of my grandsons for Christmas. I’m hoping to quilt it like you quilted your quilt.

    I have enjoyed watching Melissa make her quilts and talk about the who and why. Especially her book quilt. Such inspiration.
