Gwen Marston Here I Come!


Well I only have 3 more days to wait until Gwen's lecture and 4 more days for her Liberated Log Cabin class! Above is a picture of what the block looks like we are doing and I went to the quilt shop yesterday and got some fabrics! I wanted new fabrics - just because! But these are all repro like so I'll use the leftovers in my repro scrap quilts!

Today has been so busy at work, but as you see I did find time to update my "look". Kind of hard for me since I'm not the valentine's day kind of girl! But I"m happy with it!

Bonnie said...

I am so stinking jealous I just can NOT stand it!

So..you have to tell her that we all love her on the quilt mavericks ring and she needs to know we have links to her website and want to be her when we grow up! :c)

Our little logo in the nav panel is actually one of her wonky stars I made....I am SO hooked on her. Now I have to bow down to you too because you are going and I'm not! *LOL*

Hey, you're gonna take some actual scraps with you too, right?
You are soooo lucky. She's gonna have some of her own quilts there and you're actually gonna get to see them. Wheeeeee.

Make sure you bring your digital camera (and an extra battery and probably a back up camera , you need to be prepared for this !)and take lots of pictures for all of us to see! I am soooooo jealous I just can't stand it :)
Love the look of your new blog...hopefully someday soon I can fiqure out how to make mine more creative!

Can't wait to hear all about the class Dawn. Gwen is such a marvelously creative person. My Tangled Threads friend Kim has taken several classes from her and loved every single one of them. I second Kathie's comments - take lots of pictures for us to see!

Love the colors you've got there, girl! And tell her that Sharon in KS has a message on her answering machine about the Asilomar class.....I need to know if I am supposed to bring background type fabric, too! And if the 27 quarters of fabrics are supposed to have any value changes in them? I can hardly wait for your class!
