Alyce began quilting in 2011 when her husband purchased her a sewing machine after she had been reading all up about quilting for "one day". Little did he know what he had started!
When her family moved to Japan in 2012, that's when she truly became a quilter as a way of having something comforting and familiar to focus on through the changes. Once she realised that quilting combined both her love of creating and math, Alyce began designing her own quilt patterns while her blog, Blossom Heart Quilts, provided a place for her teaching background to be used to share tutorials.
During her four years in Japan, Alyce found her creative home in the quilting community, fell in love with Hello Kitty, and took Japanese fabric for granted. Now that she's back in Australia, she's excited to finally meet friends in person and get involved in the Melbourne, and wider, quilting community!
