Audrey Esarey of Cotton & Bourbon

Audrey Esarey

Hope you will join us!

From Audrey:
Hi there – I’m Audrey!
You might be asking – Why Cotton & Bourbon? I’m a quilter from Kentucky! I’ve also been known to have a bourbon during the evening sewing hours. 🥃 I’ve always identified as a maker, and I’ve sewn for as long as I can remember, but only began quilting in 2005. In 2018, I set a personal goal to exhibit my work in a juried quilt show, which motivated me to design and create a series of original quilts. Since then, my quilts have been exhibited and recognized at Quilt National, International Quilt Festival, and QuiltCon. I share my creative process on Instagram via @CottonandBourbon – let’s connect and chat about quilting!
