About

Turning today's treasured memories into tomorrow's heirloom quilts

I moved to Florida to attend Florida Institute of Technology and complete a degree in Aerospace Engineering. Once I got my degree I loved it so much I wanted to stay here. Living in Florida, most of my hobbies are outdoors, such as rock climbing, wakeboarding, running and triathlons. But I felt like something was missing...I had always been interested in more artistic hobbies but I'm not good at drawing, painting or anything of the sort.

In 2007, I asked Ryan what he wanted for Christmas. His response: A Volkswagen bedspread. I searched high and I searched low and couldn't find a VW blanket anywhere. After a few weeks of searching, my stubbornness kicked in...I thought "if I can't buy one, I'll make one. Sewing doesn't seem very hard" (keep in mind I had never sewn more than a button before and did not own a sewing machine). I went to work carefully drawing up the specifications for my original design (here's where the engineering comes in handy), calculating the required fabric and making a tools list. I carefully documented every step of the way, even my mistakes and 250hrs later I was rewarded with a beautiful hand pieced, hand quilted Volkswagen bedspread. I learned a lot about quilting and sewing during this project and made some important realizations:
- I needed a sewing machine
- When making a quilt, you don't have to follow the rules, you can make up the rules as you go along
- Any fabrics can look good together when arranged properly in a quilt
- I wanted to spend every free moment learning new techniques

Gradually I got more and more obsessed with quilting. I bought a nice sewing machine and my projects started increasing. But I didn't think about selling them until after I bought a quilting machine. Now as I guide the machine along, quilting whatever strikes my fancy, all I can think about is what my next exciting project will be!

Welcome to Quilted Affair! My name is Ashley and I'm a full time engineer with a quilting addiction. Here at Quilted Affair you can find all sorts of custom sewn gifts for special occasions (or just because). I am really inspired by custom gifts and ideas so if you can dream it up I'll sew it. If you make a custom order, feel free to be as specific or as vague as you want. I'm just as happy to have you select every little detail as I am to have you give me a general idea and let me fill in the blanks. Everything you will find in my store is handmade by me with a focus on outstanding quality and customer service. I make fun crafts for everyday use as well as quilts that will become family heirlooms and will be passed down for generations. Feel free to contact me anytime with questions, concerns or ideas.
