Quilter Name: Cathey Newhouse

 

Quilting is a long-standing tradition in my family.  My great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother made quilts before me, and my daughter and daughter-in-law are carrying on the tradition.  I made my first quilt at age 11.

I began seriously quilting in 1998.  Since that time I have made more than 100 quilts, most of which I’ve given away as gifts.  I have tried many different techniques and types of quilts, but most of my quilts are machine pieced or machine appliqued and machine quilted on my regular home sewing machine.

My sari quilt uses most of the fabric in 5 recycled saris.  I am delighted to use my quilting skills for the benefit of such a worthy organization as Sari Bari.
