I’m Madeleine Brown, a quilter, and welcome to my website about my quilts and my life.

I grew up in New Mexico and spent some time in Portland, OR, which was lovely, and now I’m living in Columbus, OH. I started quilting because I was carrying around so many shirts from over the course of my life that I didn’t want to get rid of but I didn’t otherwise know what to do with. That first t-shirt quilt was a bit of a disaster and it started a love of quilting that takes up almost all of my free time.

Boldly Sew is an nod to my favorite science fiction series, Star Trek, specifically the original series. There is nothing better than that campy series and each character is genius. In fact, I named my dog Uhura and I’m pretty sure my next dog will be named McCoy.

Please enjoy!
