On day 3 of the Gwen Marston workshop we headed out of the city to the cutest farm house and long arm studio in the country.
We stood around Gwen at the table while she brought out more of her quilts. We enjoyed listening to Gwen talk about the techniques she used as she made each quilt–everything from why she used the colour of thread she did for the handquilting, how she applied the single fold binding, the type of batting she used, etc. We could have listened to her share forever I am sure.
This is Gwen and I at the end of the day posing with my two creations. Gwen helped pick out the colour of the binding–red–by auditioning a narrow strip next to my work. Both pieces ended up suiting that red for binding and so they shall be bound in red after quilting. Red was not a colour I would have thought of on my own, but I love the look!
