The Power and Secret of Color

Melinda Bula portrait


Melinda Bula lives in El Dorado Hills, California and has been sewing since she was a young girl. She has been in love with fabric all of her life and knew when she was 16 years old that she was going to be an artist. After college, she was off to Hawaii as a flight attendant. After marrying, she worked in the interior design field for 15 years as a fabric and wallpaper designer. She and her husband, Joe, started Melinda Bula Designs, a wallpaper and fabric design business soon after the birth of their son in 1988.

Since moving to the Sacramento area in 1996, she has been involved in quilting and wearable arts. Melinda must be a whirling dervish of activity with her finger in many pies: quilts, wearable art, writing books, and most recently teaching online classes (

She and her quilts travel nationally and internationally to teach and exhibit at quilt shows where she wins many awards. In 2013, the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky bought Melinda's quilt And Our Flag was still There!
