Ms. Gwenny ready for our road trip











At the top of the list of my favorite memories of 2015 is the three weeks I spent in workshops and driving Gwen Marston up and down California. I consider that my condensed Master’s course in quilting, complete with a thesis: “Driving Ms. Gwenny” published in the this month’s edition of AQ magazine.


A very close second was teaching at Stonemountain and Daughter Fabrics. I have the best students!! Below are students from my December Quilt Lab, an independent study class, where everyone brings their own work and I get to help them work through any problems.
