QuiltCon 2016: Gwen Marston

Gwen Marston was the keynote speaker at this year’s QuiltCon West 2016 in Pasadena, and had a special exhibition GWEN MARSTON: Abstract Quilts in Solids.  A trailblazer and well-known international teacher, speaker, author, she began quilting in the 70’s using traditional patterns, soon after to design all her own work.

I thoroughly enjoyed her keynote address AND her quilts. Here they are. Enjoy!
