A Day with Gwen Marston

Last Wednesday, November 6th, I attended a workshop in Houghton Lake sponsored by the Hi Ho Quilt Guild (isn't that a cute name?  It stands for Higgins Lake and Houghton Lake which are two large neighboring lakes here in Michigan).  Well, how excited was I to attend this workshop?  Can you say "Over the Moon"!!!!!  I was all ready to go about 2 weeks before the actual day - counting down to actually spend time with GWEN MARSTON!!!

Gwen lives on Beaver Island which is about 25 miles off the coast from Charlevoix in Lake Michigan.  She is famous for LIBERATED QUILTING - have fun with your work!!  I would say that she is one of the founding mothers of Modern Quilting.  She's written over 20 books and if you haven't read any of them, time to get to the library or your local quilt shop and discover her world.  I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my wonderful day.
Happy LIBERATED Stitching,
