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.
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.
I 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!
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?!
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 adore the Once Upon a Time Quilt. My twin passions are quilting and reading.
I love the variety of quilts that Melissa has made and the way they have been displayed and photographed.
Love Melissa and het quilts! Her girls look so adorable 🙂
Melissa’s quilts are beautiful thanks for sharing.
Great quilts, thanks for sharing your really good photographs. I love Melissa’s blog, too.
I love the quilt on the bottom bed in the boys’ room. Any chance that Melissa could share the name of the pattern?
The pattern is called Shifting Gears and it was in Quilts from 100 Blocks found here. http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/details.html?idx=14124
It is a twin size, my son just always puts it on the bed in the wrong direction 🙂
Thanks a lot, Melissa. The postage to Australia was more than double the cost of the magazine, but I’m sure it will be worth it!
so fun to see how other quilters use quilts in their homes! We give so many quilts away, I think the quilts we keep really say something about us…
Melissa has a great blog which I also follow and I think she is so talented. Her Once Upon A Time quilt is one of my favorite.
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 love Melissa’s quilts. The Once Upon a Time is on my to make list 🙂
I have enjoyed watching Melissa make her quilts and talk about the who and why. Especially her book quilt. Such inspiration.
Thanks for sharing! This is awesome and so inspiring!
I want to live with all of those quilts surrounding me!!! How beautiful!
I love Melissa’s quilts and blog- she’s so talented!. In Your Neighborhood is one of my faves too!
Oh, I love that “Once Upon a Time” quilt! How fun for a kids’ playroom wall hanging : )
I love it when quilts are used.
Looks like a lot of fun!
