About Me

Hello!  My name is Melissa and I have been sewing for 20 years and quilting for 10 years.  It has been a dream since I bought my first sewing machine to design my own quilts and try and get them published.  The published side of the dream has been unrealized as of yet, but I am hoping with this blog that I will be able to work towards making my dream a reality.

I am a stay at home mom to my wonderful daughter Anne (her name has been changed to protect her anonymity) and wife to my incredible hubby who serves in the US Military.  We are stationed in the Pacific Northwest and are finally starting to get used to having rain for more than half the year!

I am a bit manic at times in my crafting and I am usually juggling 5 or 6 projects at once – bear with me as I try and git er done!  My goal for this website and blog are to show completed quilting projects/patterns, have tutorials, tips/tricks, and information about quilting and sewing for all skill levels. I want this to be a space where it is ok to ask questions and to throw your ideas and suggestions into the ring.  I am sew excited to move forward with this new adventure in my life and I hope you are excited to come along with me!

Here’s my email address: melissa at sewbittersweetdesigns dot com.

    I just came to the about me page looking for a way to contact you via email and saw we could comment instead. And I see Janet has already asked what I was going to ask myself. I’d love a way to subscribe to your posts via email as well. Please? :) Thank you.

    Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Melissa. It has been my home for more years than I care to reveal. I’ve lived on both sides of the mountains, and if you get too water-logged, come east. We quilt on the east side too. I like the flying geese project. Chain piecing certainly does speed up the process of assembling many parts for a whole. I came upon your blog through Bellaonline–out of New Zealand and Australia. Keep stitching.
