Flyover Quilt: October 2021

Page Content: 

Flyover is a traditionally-pieced quilt that plays with the idea of overlaid circles and squares to create depth and texture. The repeated block is a mix of straight and curved piecing and comes together quickly. With so many “layers,” Flyover lends itself to fun customization and creative quilting. We can't wait to see how your Flyover quilt turns out!

Finished Size: 60" x 60"

Melissa is a modern quilter, instructor, and pattern designer who loves bold color and dynamic movement. She stumbled into quilting over a decade ago when she took a wrong turn in downtown Cairo, found herself in a fabric market, and fell in love with the bright colors and soft cottons surrounding her.

Melissa is inspired by her Mexican American heritage and the colors and experiences of her childhood on the borderlands. Among her other passions are being a mother of four, a news junkie, a Pearl Jam superfan, and co-founder of a nonprofit helping locally resettled refugees thrive. She lives in Logan, UT, with her husband and four kids.

Melissa’s work has been featured at the International Quilt Festival, QuiltCon, the National Quilt Museum, and in magazines such as Curated Quilts and Make Modern.
