Melissa started quilting as a hobby in 2005 but since starting her blog, Happy Quilting, in 2010 her hobby has turned into a passion. Her passion for quilting has lead to creating her own designs that she shares as tutorials, published works, a pattern line, and even her own book, Irish Chain Quilts. Melissa loves designing and finds inspiration in just about everything and anything. Melissa, her husband and their five little children live in Cedar City, Utah.
