This week saw the passing of quilt icon, Gwen Marston. Gwen was a fiber artist, author, and teacher who taught nationally for over three decades. Two of her 29 books received awards: Mary Schafer: American Quilt Maker - 2005 Michigan Notable Book award and 37 Sketches - 2012 New York Book Show Award. Her work has been exhibited around the world.

Gwen was one of a kind in the quilting world and we will miss her.

We were lucky enough to see her special exhibit at QuiltCon West 2016 - Gwen Marston: Abstract Quilts in Solids, featuring Gwen's contemporary abstract work. We share it with you here.
