Hello fellow bloggers and blog stalkers! I am Melissa, I used to blog with Sunni from Love Affair With My Brother. If you are a follower of Love Affair, than you probably noticed this past summer that when I posted quilt tutorials that the pictures I posted said something along the lines of “BitterSweet Baby Quilt Designs”. Well….that is because I have been toying around with the idea of launching my own separate blog AND business. It took all summer to settle on a name and that name is Sew BitterSweet Designs – I guess you could say I have finally decided to take the plunge!
The BitterSweet is in honor of my daughter. Her name means Bitterly Gracious – and I choose to interpret that as BitterSweet. She is the light of my life and at the core of most everything that I do – so naturally she is at the heart of my blog and future business too.
You have seen some of the quilts I have been designing all summer, and I have more up my sleeve! I just purchased Electric Quilt 7 and I plan to put it to good use, designing new, innovative, and modern designs for quilters of all skill levels!
I hope you will take some time if you are new and check out some of my tutorials and see what I can do.
I have so much in store for this blog including: tutorials for new and experienced quilters alike, free patterns and tutorials, and my adventures in trying to break into the pattern designing world! I hope you will follow along with me via Google Friend Connect or Twitter (I’m still working on getting a Facebook Page)!
I also thought it might be fun to kick things off with a little giveaway! I am giving away a fat quarter bundle of Robert Kaufman’s Pooches and Pickups by Laurie Wisbrun. I am also giving away a charm pack of Retro Thirties Prints.
