My name is Michelle Curtis, welcome to my blog.Michelle portrait I’m a wife and mother of 4 great kids.

I also obsessively make beautiful things with fabric and thread. This is where I share my creations.

It all started back in 2006 when my mother bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. I had no idea how to work the thing. After letting the machine collect dust for over a year (maybe two), I decided I was going to make a quilt. From that point on I was hooked! I’m self taught from YouTube and other bloggers’ tutorials. I love making gifts for my friends and family. It’s a great feeling to be able to say “I made that!”.

Where did the name Chelle’s Quilts come from? When I was a little girl my 2 younger sisters couldn’t say the M in Michelle, so they called me Chelle (like “shell”). It stuck and my whole family called me Chelle for a good chunk of my childhood. Somewhere in my teens, the nickname went away until I became an aunt. Now my nephews call me Aunt Chelle and I love it! It reminds me of when I was a kid and things were simpler.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Sewing,

  1. Hi Michelle, I was wondering if you have a pattern for the gorgeous kite quilt you made with the Playground fabrics by AG, I just love it, it is so different and I would love to have a go and make it, thanks Diane (hi from Australia xo) 😀

    1. Hi Diane! Yes, my pattern for the kite mini is in issue 43 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazing. It was a couple issues ago but you can purchase back issues electronically. You might still be able to order a back copy online if you prefer the physical magazine. Hope that helps. 😊
