North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild
Melanie Tuazon found her creative voice designing quilts after years of writing about creative people for trade magazines. She became obsessed with quilting in 2011, squeezing time with her machine into every available scrap of time and devouring tutorials on quilting blogs. Now, she travels to teach workshops and writes about her quilts on her own site, melintheattic.com. Her award-winning quilts hang in shows and museums, and her designs can be found in magazines in the US and Europe. A self-professed process nerd, Melanie encourages students to develop a personalized quilting practice that is fulfilling from start to finish. She lives with her family in the New York suburbs of New Jersey.
