Gwen has done it AGAIN!

I was going to write about this LAST week...but I had Salisbury, and then Shallotte, and you know all about the best of intentions, but I was just reminded that I need to do this NOW!!!

Here is the blurb from Gwen Marston's Website:

Ideas and Inspirations, Abstract Quilts in Solids

Gwen has written a new book and this one is especially designed for grownup quilters. It's a book for the many accomplished quilters who are not looking for yet another project book with pages of detailed elementary instructions on how to make someone else's quilt. Rather, it's intended for quilters who are seeking ideas and inspiration for their own work.

This 67 page book begins with a seven page discussion about working with solids and Gwen's fresh approach to design concepts. The remaining pages are in full color showing full page photographs of 28 quilts with close-ups and captions of each on the opposite page. Gregory Case did the photography and it is first rate.

Ordering information:
... Book is available from Gwen or Gwen Marston Storefront

Can you see me jumping up and down with excitement here? I can't wait to order my copy. I want it from Gwen herself, so that means "The check is in the mail" as they say. I've always loved solids, I use them all the time, and I am SO inspired by her vision. I would love to be Gwen when I grow up...that is if I ever do!

If you do order, tell her that Bonnie from Quiltville sent you!
