Her work has been featured in many national publications, including McCall's Quilting and Quilt Magazine. M'Liss had her own PBS quilting show and appeared on many. In 1999, she began designing fabrics for Independent Quilt Shops, JoAnn Fabrics and Hancock Fabric Stores. Along the way she was also crowned "Fat Quarter Queen" for her pioneering and original work with quarter yard pieces of fabric. M'Liss will share her fabric design process and show many ways to "Be a Better Quilter!" including, how simple embellishments and embroideries make a great quilt a crowd stopper bringing more "Color and Creativity into Your Life!"
