See more than 80 quilts representing more than 40 years and a variety styles--all united by a common thread: the artist Gwen Marston.
The quilt galleries are separated into several categories: Traditional Patchwork, Applique', Liberated Patchwork, String Quilts, and Abstract Quilts in Solids; and feature beautiful images of quilts that span Gwen's career as a quilter, from the 1970s to today.
