Today*****Melissa from Sewbittersweet designs*****
Sharon from Vroomans Quilts
Sue from Quilt Times
Hayley from Mrs.Pickles Garden 

Today we are stopping over at Melissa’s site Sewbittersweet Designs
I came across Melissa’s site during the Sew Happy Geek Quilt Along in 2012. Melissa designed the fireflies block for the QAL and once I saw that block I knew I had to become a follower. With Melissa’s clever work and heartwarming posts just can’t help but want to be friends with her!!

Melissa grew up in the San Francisco bay Area, but the Army had other plans for her family 5 years ago and stationed them in Fort Lewis, WA and thus now call Olympia home. She finds herself still adjusting to the snowy winters. Melissa grew up watching her mom sew and learnt the skill herself at age 11 in home economics. The quilting bug finally caught up with her when she was 20 with the birth of her brother first child from then on she was hooked. Melissa’s favourite project to date is her Flying Arrows quilt that is on her bed right now.
