Cherri House is a quilt designer and owner of Cherry House Quilts, along with her daughter Lizzy. Cherri was taught to sew at a very young age by her mother, an accomplished seamstress. Her first conscious memory of a quilt was one made by her grandmother. That humble, made-from-scraps patchwork quilt was, in her eight-year-old heart, the most beautiful thing she had ever seen. This first “real” quilt sparked in her a love of quilting that has never been quenched. Nor has her desire to wrap everyone in a quilt, to keep them warm and loved. She definitely believes the world would be a better place if everyone had a quilt.
Geometric and graphic quilts designed as a whole are Cherri’s signature style, which has evolved from her first quilt at age twelve, with her mother. A constant in her quilting adventures is her love of color and fabric—”the more the merrier” is her motto.
Cherri’s first love has always been her family. As a single mother to Luke, Elizabeth, Ashlee, and Melissa, quilting often took a back seat to rearing her family. But it has always been a source of comfort during stressful times. In 2007, within two weeks of her last “little one” leaving home, Cherry House Quilts was born—a long-awaited dream came true!
