The pattern is the Good Old Hockey Game by Kristieocd on Etsy.
I quilted it using a loose meander and backed it with Moda Fireside to keep it soft and cuddly. The colours are for the Montreal Canadiens. The best part is that he LOVES IT!
After admiring quilt magazines in grocery stores for years, Melanie finally worked up the
courage to make her first one in 1998. She had a borrowed sewing machine and absolutely no
knowledge of quilting, whatsoever. The results were predictably disastrous, yet she was
completely and immediately hooked. In the twenty years since she has become an extremely
adept and ambitious quilter, always willing and excited to try new techniques and tools.
What started as a hobby has turned into a lifelong passion. Melanie is always making quilts,
talking about quilts, admiring quilts, looking at patterns, petting fabric, going to quilt shows, or
packing to go on retreats with friends who are equally
There is only one thing Melanie enjoys as much as quilting and that is encouraging others in
their pursuit of the art.
As a former corporate workshop facilitator, Melanie strives to create a learning atmosphere
that is welcoming, fun, and encouraging. She wants all students to leave her courses feeling
empowered and proud of their efforts.
