Gwen's Beaver island Quilt Retreat

Jackie in the retreat room

swapping ideas with Gwen

Jackie's basket taking shape  
I'm just home from 4 days of quilting with Gwen Marston in  Michigan at her world famous
quilting retreat.  It was a great group of ladies and I thought I would show you their work and
introduce you to them one by one.  This is Jackie, doesn't she have a great smile?  Her work is so creative, you can find one of her many quilts on page 99 of Gwen's " Liberated Medallion Quilts" book.

Jackie's basket quilt was taking shape everyday of the retreat with the center basket composed
of tiny hst blocks in all shades of yellow.  Jackie is a repeat retreater with Gwen and lives in the area,
she had us all over to her beautiful home on the lake where she quilts to her hearts content in a lovely sewing space.

You can see how we all shared design wall space so stay tuned to see those quilts and the lovely lady behind the work.

Happy Sewing, Kim
