Melissa Corry began quilting in 2002. Her mother taught her the basics so she would have something to do in the evenings while her husband was studying in medical school. She enjoyed making baby quilts for friends and family and even the occasional bed quilt. In 2010, Melissa created her blog, Happy Quilting, and her hobby quickly became a passion.
Melissa loves all things quilting, from designing to binding and everything in between. Quilting is a creative respite for her, and as a busy mom of five, she often says, "It is the one thing I do in my day that stays done." In short, quilting makes her happy, and she loves to share that joy of quilting with others.
Since joining the online community of quilters, Melissa has started her own pattern line, her quilts have been published in prominent magazines, and she has shared her projects in several collaborative books.
