ABOUT

 

Melanie Tuazon is a quilter and fiber artist whose process includes a spectrum of improvisation. She enjoys incorporating planned and unplanned design elements and techniques, which repeatedly use curves, skinny piecing, and occasional handwork. Much of her work explores how modern domesticity, feminism and identity intersect within the context of quilting tradition. Before she started quilting in 2011 she was a journalist who wrote about creative people for trade magazines. After becoming a mother she was drawn to her own creative practice and the modern quilting community. She was president of the North Jersey MQG from 2013 to 2015. Her quilts have shown and won ribbons at Houston Quilt Festival and QuiltCon, where she was a faculty member in 2018, 2019, and 2021.
