"Portrait of Melody Crust" by Melody Crust


A nationally celebrated fabric artist, Melody Crust is renowned for her quilting talent. Her work has been shown in any number of juried shows and exhibitions, gathering awards as they go, and is coveted by private collectors around the world. She has traveled to virtually every part of the country, bringing her natural teaching ability and contagious enthusiasm to quilters everywhere. Her extremely popular lectures and workshops are always well received - students often return again and again for another helping of her expertise!

Her book, Quilt Toppings; Fun and Fanciful Embellishment Techniques, taps into the strong emerging trend toward embellishment of quilt surfaces. Paint, foil, paint sticks, thread, crayons, buttons, ribbons and beads are all readily available, fun, easy and non-messy ways to add that final design element to traditional and non-traditional quilts.

Melody has appeared on both television and radio. In addition to her book, A Fine Line: Techniques and Inspirations for Creating the Quilting Design, co-written with Heather Waldron, her quilts and writings have been featured in dozens of books, magazines and other publications, including Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, Quilters World, and Patchwork Quilts.

She is an active promoter of every facet of the quilting world. In addition to all of her other activities, she has judged and curated regional and national exhibitions and co-founded a major quilter's association in the Pacific Northwest. Melody and her husband, professional photographer Charles Crust, live in Kent, Washington.
