Ashelyn Downs

A millennial and serial entrepreneur with a million ideas floating around, Ashelyn Downs began her quilting journey while running yet another business and realized her love for design and married the two passions to bring more fun and modern quilts to the ever-expanding quilting world.

Her mission is to create a community for other modern quilters to find the confidence and inspiration to make beautiful quilts that fit their lifestyle.

I love how Ashelyn jumps in with both feet to reach her ideals.  Even as a young girl she made a unique way to sell lemonade.  Imagine a little girl coming up to your door to offer you to buy her lemonade instead of just having a lemonade stand in front of her house.

Here’s Ashelyn’s first quilt pattern that she talked about.

And here’s her 9th&9th quilt
