Gwen's Quilts 2006 Asilomar

This is the last blog post about my trip to Asilomar. I have a ton of pictures, and I can't seem to remember which ones Dawn posted, so I'll just post them again. Nothing like a little quilt show to get you stimulated, eh? I so enjoyed my week with Gwen in California at Empty Spools, I decided I could splurge and go to her Beaver Island Quilt Retreat in September too. It's not on Beaver Island anymore, it's in a little town north of Traverse City. There are still openings in the retreat (I'm going Sept 13-16), so if you want to go, sign up now and we could get a condo at White Birch Lodge and share the cost!

I've finished up my cut blocks from the class, and now it's time to put them away and get back to what I was doing. I'm just about to get the last round of binding put on a giant king size quilt (Dresden Plate), and I've been working off and on today about Wabi Sabi? Remember that? Hopefully it will be done in the next couple of days and make it's appearance here soon!

Wow, thanks for posting all those and who cares if we've seen them before. Can definitely see the Freddy Moran color influence - can't wait for the new book.
AAAAAiiieeeyyyyyyeeee!!! You're going to the retreat. I am soooo jealous. If the timing were just a bit different I would so go with you.

Thanks for the quilt show... I really want to go on a retreat, but that is the super duper busiest time for me at work... I guess I'll have to live vicariously through that one too...

Oh these are all totally different quilts than I saw - except for the first one! How fun - but very bright for me. My favorite one is the last one! I want to make that one someday!

I had thought about going to her quilt retreats, but I think that is the same week as another retreat I was invited to go on....

Just not enough time.... (or money)!

Wow....great quilt show Sharon, thanks for sharing it with us!! I do love her quilts and never get tired of seeing them. I think it's great that Gwen is willing to go off in new directions and be the wild child when she chooses..*VBS*
