Freedom Quilter: Amy Garro / Indiana, USA

My name is Amy Garro and I’m a stay at home mom and quilter. I graduated from Notre Dame in 2009 with a Theology degree and do some light writing, but for the most part, I fill my time with giggles and stitches. I have two sons under two, and my husband does a great job making sure I have crafty time. I love designing quilts and would probably rather do that than even sew – but someone has to make everything I sketch! I started crafting at age 4 and sewing (on the machine) at age 7, but mainly sewed garments. I started focusing on quilting in 2011 and haven’t looked back since!

 

 

 

 

Freedom Quilters: Linda Fasules & Lynne Mackay-Atha / Washington, DC, USA

Linda, a pediatric nurse, and Lynne, a science teacher, are both experienced quilters. They met through the DC Modern Quilt Guild and always are interested in a new challenge. We enjoyed playing with the vibrant colors and intricate patterns and borders on the saris and hope you will love our quilt.
