Gray Study (22"x23") and Brexit (22"x27")

Gwen Marston, a long time celebrity in the quilt world, was the guest teacher for the Seven Sisters Quilt Show last month in San Luis Obispo.  Her class on abstract compositions with solid colors was really three days of play for quilting junkies like me.  

My only plan was to try minimalism.  Turns out that's quite a challenge for me.  My "Gray Study" used every solid color I had.  My "Brexit,"so titled because it was the big event that week, used every piecing technique Gwen demonstrated.  Here's what I learned....being minimal is like sticking to a diet in front of a grand buffet.  


  1. Love it and love your minimal comparison. How small are the colored squares in the Gray Study.
