I got to take another workshop from my favorite teacher, Gwen Marston!
I've taken several workshops with Gwen, and I've learned something new each time.
Her message is always this, "Make YOUR OWN quilts."
When she pulled out this quilt, I was thrilled!
I saw it in one of her books years ago, and decided it's my favorite she's made.
She explained how she got the idea from an old quilt.
Look at that quilting! All by hand, of course.
The label shows she was making abstract quilts over 20 years ago.
Here are some students' work, all made in the two day workshop.
This one is mine. It's the start of a background for a folk art appliqué.
I used Sujata's technique for making the broken dishes blocks.
The light ones are 2". I've never worked so small.
Crazy? Maybe, but each one is so dang cute!
I feel very fortunate and grateful for the opportunities to be around Gwen Marston.
She, more than anyone, has shaped my ideas about quilt-making.
