Melinda Bula has sewn since she was a little girl and made her first quilt at the age of 19. Her background is in art and design, and she is a true artist at heart. Her company, Melinda Bula Designs, sells hand-silk-screened fabric and wallpaper nationwide. Her designs have appeared on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens and in several books.
Melinda's gorgeous quilt "Splendor in the Grass" won Best in Show at the 2009 International Quilt Festival/Chicago. She finds nothing as enjoyable as sitting down and making a traditional appliquéd quilt. Known for her painterly and dynamic style, Melinda loves to turn her designs into patterns.
