Time for reflection is a gift.  My thoughts have remained on the recent Gwen Marston extravaganza at the Madeline Island School of the Arts with Gwen and yours truly. There is pleasure in watching students experience Liberated Quiltmaking. Gwen introduced her book in the mid 1990s, and has delighted in sharing her ideas ever since. Many students were accomplished quiltmakers, some were also instructors. Observing their ongoing enthusiasm for this process confirms the staying power of Liberated Quiltmaking.

Gwen and I offered a gallery of inspiration, demonstrations and opportunity for students to explore and develop their ideas.

Here is a little fun...someone really got the point!

As many quilters know, we have a fine craft and we enjoy each other's company. Time together is a gift. Thanks again to everyone who joined Gwen and I at the Madeline Island School of the Arts.  ---pjb
