From Meg: Hi! I am Meg from Fashioned by Meg. I am a California girl currently living in Indiana- hopefully, we should be back in California by September! I am the wife of Kurt, my wonderful lawyer husband, and the mom to the two sweetest little girls, Juliana and Felicity. I like to sew everything! I learned to sew when I was a teenager, but only recently got back to sewing a couple of years ago. I finished my first quilt last month, and I can’t wait to make more!
