Quilt Matters: Improv with Gwen Marston

Improv with Gwen Marston

Gwen Marston was the deciding factor for me attending QuiltCon this year. I've read her books for years and love her work. I decided that if I got into her class, I would go. And I did. Well, my husband is the real hero of this story. See, I had a meeting at the time that registration for workshops opened for QuiltCon last year so I wasn't going to be able to register myself.
