More tributes in loving memory of Gwen:
- From BlueNickelStudio:
Mourning the loss of my friend #gwenmarston – we only met in person 2 or 3 times out on the west coast and I never made it to #beaverisland to visit her In her studio (which by photos and descriptions I have envisioned as idyllic) – I found out she was sick last year when I emailed her after the feature on her in #Quiltfolk when they covered Michigan.
We have had a few emails since then – and last month was the last – I knew things weren’t good – but still you always hope things will get better right?
So much inspiration in her work helps bring some comfort to the many tears of today.

My dear Gwen Marston died yesterday at her home on Beaver Island. She was very special to me and to countless others.
This photo (above) was taken five years ago as she was giving me a tour of her quilts and studio. I believe she would smile at this photo of her in her red bathrobe. She changed my quilt making and my life. May she live on in our work. ❤️
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
