Katie Winter (Austin, Texas)

Katie taught herself traditional quilt making 10 years ago after she bought her first “really good" sewing machine. She still appreciates and is influenced by the precision piecing and perfect points of traditional quilts, but today Katie prefers a more relaxed, unstructured, contemporary approach for her quilt making; and many of her quilts feature her own painted, hand-dyed, discharged, or batik fabric. Katie is a proud mom of grown son, Chad; and she now shares her home and studio with husband, David, and their cats, Lucy and Roscoe.
