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!
The winning ticket number was 1050! Congratulations! The winner has been notified by phone and is thrilled to have won the raffle quilt! Thank you to everyone who bought a raffle quilt ticket and attended the quilt show!
