Freedom Quilter: Kristin Perret-Gentil / Aurora, Colorado, USA
My name is Kristin, and I have lived in Colorado for almost 8 years. I have a husband who is going through grad school right now to finish two master’s degrees, and while he is busy with that I stay home with our two kids; Aspen who is 4, and Beckett who is 2. They keep me very busy and on my toes, but during my free time I love to quilt and sew clothes for my daughter (and every once in a while my son). I loved the design of this quilt, and how the colors of these beautiful saris popped against the white background. I really enjoyed making it and learned some new techniques along the way. I hope you all enjoy it as well!
