Quilts on Beaver Island
Quilt backs aren’t often celebrated, but Gwen Marston made hers sing. The stunning work of this legendary quilter, writer, and national treasure, has inspired several generations. Quiltfolk captured this image on Beaver Island, off the coast of Michigan, where we interviewed Marston for Issue 08: Michigan. The improvisation master lived in a cabin-like home on the remote island for 34 years, until her passing in April 2019. There, she quilted by the hour, mostly by hand, soaking up the peace of the lush woods surrounding her. Marston will be greatly missed, but her work lives on in the hearts of legions of quilters.
