About Riane Elise
Riane Menardi Morrison is a modern quilter making minimal quilts for the modern home. She learned to quilt in 2011 from her grandmother, and once she found the right materials (linen, cotton, and wool), she fell in love and never looked back. Riane crafts heirloom-quality quilts that are as beautiful as they are functional, and each quilt is hand quilted with large stitching for a unique and durable finish.
Riane is the author of Inheritance: Minimal Quilts for the Modern Home and a coauthor of Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century by the Modern Quilt Guild. Her quilts have been featured in numerous magazines and quilt exhibits, and she teaches and lectures on hand quilting and modern quilt design around the country.
She lives and works in Des Moines with her husband, Kevin, and silly pup, Dallas. Connect with her on Instagram @riane.elise.
