Meet the Author

You may already know M'Liss Rae Hawley as the author of thirteen best-selling books, or as a fabric designer or world-traveled featured speaker. Along the way, she was crowned Fat-Quarter Queen for her pioneering and original work with these wonderful quarter-yard pieces of fabric. M'Liss's sewing journey began when she was four years old and her mother taught her to embroider on handkerchiefs. By age nine, M'Liss's passion had grown to such a degree that she convinced her father to fib about her age so she could take regular adult sewing classes at the local Singer dealer in Seattle, Washington. (Oh, and it was about that time that she got her first dachshund, Fritzi.) M'Liss's love for fabric and design continued to grow, and in 1983 she began her business, M'Liss's Design & Quilting World, LLC, in the living room of her home. In 1988 the family moved to Whidbey Island, Washington, and her studio was soon shared with a new dachshund, Matilda. In 2003, M'Liss came to C&T Publishing, and to date has released nine books...with more on the way. Shortly after, she began work on her nationally syndicated PBS show, M'Liss's World of Quilts, and became a spokesperson for Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machines; the company features her regularly in its worldwide advertising campaigns. In addition, M'Liss Design Fabric was launched for sale in independent quilt shops. In 2009, M'Liss began her wonderful partnership with Hancock Fabrics, producing dozens of fresh, new M'Liss Design Fabric collections every year, as well as other quilting and sewing products. M'Liss's husband, Michael, is in law enforcement and served three terms as the elected sheriff of Island County, Washington. Their son, Alexander, a staff sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, recently returned from Afghanistan. Their daughter, Adrienne, graduated from Seattle University, served a year in AmeriCorps while also serving as a volunteer firefighter, recently graduated with a master's degree from University College Dublin, in Ireland, and is currently working on her PhD. M'Liss and Michael currently share their Whidbey Island home with five dachshunds and five cats.

    Great for Beginners!

    This is a great book for the beginner. In the general instruction area, she explains a quilt sandwich, tools needed along with details about the type of sewing machine required for the projects. The instructions are written with the beginner in mind! All the projects are simply achieved when using pre-cut fabrics, especially easy for beginners. She even goes in to detail about grain lines and value. The patterns are simple and based on traditional looks that have been updated to modern colors and settings. This would be a great book for teachers with beginners in the class because it starts at the very beginning explaining in great detail, easy to understand. I would recommend this one to anyone wanting to self-teach themselves quilting. Great for your collection!!

    Easy With Beautiful Results!

    If you would like to quilt but don't have time to spend hours in the
    fabric store nor do you want to cut out all those pieces, then precuts
    are definitely the way to go and M'Liss Rae Hawley's Precut Quilts is
    the perfect book for you. Whether you're a beginner or someone
    returning to quilting, she explains everything in simple detail with
    easy to follow step by step directions. Wondering what precuts are?
    M'Liss explains the different types so you can decide how much time you
    want to spend and what size quilt you wish to make.

    Although the quilt patterns are on the easier side, the basic
    directions give you lots of room to create using the design of the
    fabric in the precuts. Whether you like bright or bold, or calm and
    subtle, the patterns in her book give you lots of room to play. I like
    that she includes photos of the same quilt in different color schemes.
    And the Bag of Strips Tote Project included in the book is a must!
    Totes are in and this pattern is the perfect place to start.
