Fabulous Flower Photo Quilts by Melinda Bula
Your lovely flower photograph becomes a fiber masterpiece as Melinda Bula guides you through the process of choosing the best photograph, making a pattern, and choosing a color palette. Select fabrics that work best with your image, then fuse, make petals, and assemble the complete flower.
From foreground to background, Melinda gives practical tips and encouragement along the way. She even demonstrates her Renegade Thread Play, showing how to best quilt the project.
Melinda’s goal is to show how to think like an artist and sums it up best by saying, “Perfection and creativity do not go together?so go out there and be creative!”

Melinda knew early in life that she was going to be an artist, so it was no surprise when she majored in art in college. However, soon she was off to Hawaii to be a flight attendant, a “real” job that paid the bills. But color was in Melinda’s future as she and her husband started a wallpaper and fabric design business, with her designs landing on the covers of major magazines. In 1996, she began quilting and creating wearable arts, soon winning awards for her work in both categories.
Melinda is the author of two books, Cutting Garden Quilts and Candy Cane Lane. Her quilts have been exhibited in the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, at Quilt Expo en Beaujolais in France, and at the Texas Quilt Museum. In 2013, The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, bought Melinda’s quilt entitled …AND OUR FLAG WAS STILL THERE!
