Phyllis Melanson

I have been making quilts since 2004. My first quilt was a rag quilt which I made for my son. After that, I was hooked on quilting. I bought myself a quilting frame as a retirement gift in 2010 and have been enjoying quilting even more since then.

 My home is pet-free, perfume/scent-free and smoke-free.

Phyllis – just a quick note to let you know that our friends loved the quilt – Cottage Comfort in Red & Green! Thanks again and hope to do business with you again in the future. – Toni S., Ontario, Canada
I received my quilt – Cottage Comfort in Blue #3 – from the post box late yesterday. I am absolutely thrilled about how it turned out. You have hit the color blues and combinations right spot on. Again I am extremely satisfied and pleased with my new blue quilt Phyllis. It is a fine example of your talents and dedication to the craft of quilting. From all our emails and phone calls going forward to commission this quilt, it really paid off. For example, the selection of fabrics and pattern layout added with your advice and input, over time, I started to get a picture in my mind of what the finished quilt would look like. Phyllis, I can tell you flat out that when I got home and opened up the box and took my first look . . . I literally said out loud, ” Oh my. Well done, Phyllis . . . well done . . . now we are talking BLUE!!!” SPOT ON! – Brad Seward, Ontario, Canada
The quilt I commissioned – Cottage Comfort in Blue – arrived yesterday and is quite beautiful. I absolutely love the label and everything else. Thanks so much. – Patricia Resor, USA

Genesis

Designed by: Lynn Schmitt Cibulka of A Different Box of Crayons
Made by: Phyllis Melanson
Size: 80″ x 92″ 203cm x 233cm
Description: This is a commissioned quilt for a gentleman who found this pattern and wanted a quilt with lots of colors but did not want white. The pattern and fabric were bought from Connecting Threads and since he wanted a queen-size quilt, I bought extra fabric to make it larger. The fabric, although it has no design in it, looks very nice for this pattern. I chose a yellowish color for the backing and with the navy-blue thread for the quilting, it looks very nice. The quilting pattern just pops on the quilt top and on the back of the quilt.
