About me

Me in my sewing space!Hi! I’m Alissa.

That’s pronounced A-Leesa. Like there’s only one S. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, our new little son, and our many pets.  I am a modern quilter and blog about it here. I am the co-founder and Executive Director of The Modern Quilt Guild and I have written two modern quilting books, Block Party and Modern Minimal.  Thanks for stopping by!

If you have any questions or just want to say hello you can e-mail me at alissa@handmadebyalissa.com.
