Gwen’s Appliqué

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Gwen Marston’s work. I made this quilt ages ago and I still love it!

It was inspired by this quilt made by Gwen.

The above quilt is patterned in this book.

Since hubby and I had a trip planned, that meant getting a handwork ready to take. I rarely do any appliqué, but thought this would be a good time for a small appliqué project. These are my inspiration choices, all from Gwen’s book shown above.

I love her quirky, folk art quilts that are firmly rooted in tradition. Time to get to work!

Have a great day!

    I have that book and it is such a good one for inspiration. You put the book to good use in making your wall size quilts.

    All three would make a great mini quilt on their own. She’s an inspiration. Took a lot of stress out of my quilting life.
