Come Party with Us at Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party

This is my first blog party. I hope to get to know several other bloggers. If you want to join the party, click here.

Here is a little about myself:

My name is Ashley Ortega. I have been quilting since I was in upper-elementary school. My mom signed my sister and I up for a quilting class at a local quilt store. This is where my love of quilting began. I have created several quilts, table runners, and much more since this time. My grandmother helped continue to give me passion and has always encouraged me. One of the highlights of my year is going to the Houston, TX Quilt Show every year.

I  got married in Jan 2010 to my amazing husband, Jesse. He is not the only the most patient man I know, but my best friend and the love of my life. He has learned that quilting makes me happy so he supports me and just hands me the money :) We have two little dogs, Sasha (4-5 years old) and Max (almost 1 year old).

Please leave a comment and let me know where your blog is so I can visit it. Also, let me know if there is a certain type of sewing project I could share with you.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

    Hi Ashley!!! It’s nice to meet you. I’m still in the middle of making a quilt for a little boy. I really need to finish it soon. I”m more into knitting than quilting. I’ve visiting from the Blog Party.

    Here are my UBP links.

    Hi! I love your blog. I’ve never been successful at quilting! :) @lydsrich

  6. Hi Ashley, I’m stopping by from the UBP. Great quilt, I love it. I made a t-shirt quilt with some old college t-shirts and it turned out great, but I haven’t posted about it yet. Best of luck getting this blog started; I just started my own recently as well, about two months ago. Stop by and visit!
