When I flipped the quilt over to look at the back, there was a surprise, and it made me smile. There was a big bird perched on a branch, with the inscription in the center with the title, her name, location and year. In her artist statement, Kristin said, "This is a sketch that I made during a class with Gwen Marston. I will always be thankful to Gwen for pioneering the concept of Liberated Quilting." I, too, am thankful.
