About Me

Hi!  My name is Audrey, and I moved to Littleton, Colorado in 2004; I am originally from Alabama, and I am a huge Auburn fan!  War Eagle!


I started sewing my first quilt in 2003 which was a yo-yo quilt that is still not finished.  I have made around 3,000 yo-yos and am in the middle of sewing it all together.  . I really wanted to make a quilt, but I didn't have a machine so went with handsewing.  My mom then gave me her old Kenmore and I started experimenting with it.  I really started sewing quilts back in the fall of 2007 when I made my mom a rag quilt for Christmas.  I then found flickr, quilting blogs,  and modern fabrics and haven't looked back since! 


I have participated in many swaps online, and it was a fun way to meet new people and discover new fabrics.  They really made me grow as a quilter as well.


I have a one year old daughter who has many quilts already.  I then started sewing clothes for her this past year and I am learning how to sew clothes for me.  I don't have as much time as I used to, so most of my sewing is done at night after my daughter goes to bed and on the weekends.


I am so excited about meeting some new quilting friends!

I was so lucky to have my mom help me out as I started; I have even had my aunt skype with me to show me how to put a dress together. I am not even close to an expert, but I have figured out some of it! Some patterns still make me wonder what they are talking about, and I have made at least 20 items of clothing this past year! I think it would be fun to have a "Patterns" meeting; I would be happy to help where I could and happy to learn from more experienced people, too!

"It isn't hard once you learn how to read patterns..."
Gee willakers, ain't that the truth!
Clothing patterns are written in a whole different language...and it's been a hard one for me to learn! I swear, and I say this with all sincerity, NOTHING in life makes me feel as ignorant as reading a clothing pattern does. I've made 2 things for my oldest, and thankfully I have great sewing neighbors that helped me through the process! Had they not been here, I never could have finished.

Hey, here's an idea...Audrey, maybe we can have a special "How To Read Sewing Patterns" meeting! :o) Or it can be a theme for one of our group sew-ins. :o)

Melissa, I graduated in 1999 with a BA in Art (painting) and a BA in Theatre (Design). I started in 1994, so we were there at the same time! It is nice to meet another Auburn person!

Beth, thanks! It isn't hard once you learn how to read patterns. It is so gratifying to see them walk around in something you made! You have to try it.:)

I just checked out your blog and you make the cutest stuff for your daughter! That's one area I have a looooong way to go in learning.
