A Common Thread: A Collection of Quilts by Gwen Marston

Notify-meWish-list

Celebrate the creativity of quilt artist Gwen Marston with this stunning coffee-table book, chronicling five decades of her breathtaking work. Whether you’ve followed her for years or are discovering her for the first time, this in-depth journey into Gwen’s lifelong love affair with fabric, color, and design will inspire you again and again. From her beginnings as a traditional quilter to her acclaimed “liberated” quiltmaking era; from her series of spectacular string quilts to her exploration of minimalist design, this magnificently photographed, self-curated collection of more than 65 quilts invites you to get up-close and personal with Gwen like never before.

You’ll find delightfully unexpected surprises on every page, along with quotes from Gwen that reveal her motivations as a quilter and artist: to create without a need for perfection, to evolve and embrace change, and to express a unique perspective of the world with heart and soul.

  • Such a hard decision to pick a favorite! All the books look fantastic! I have admired Gwen Marston’s quilts for as long as I remember and loved everything from Buggy Barn with Janet Nesbitt and her sister. I would have to pick "Crazy at the Cabin" though because of the Moose quilt. My husband’s nickname is "Moose" and I have never made him a personal quilt. That quilt is the one!

    —Debbie Miller on July 6, 2016
