37 Sketches by Gwen Marston. This a beautifully photographed and executed book featuring the sketches in fabric process that Gwen Marston uses to try out her ideas for new quilts. From the author: "I began to see these sketches in much the same way as a painter does in using sketches to explore technique and to work out color and composition ideas. These pieces are abstract compositions, worked primarily in solids. Constructing these 37 sketches provided me with a valuable and expedient way to explore new technique, color, and composition. I explain my process for making these small studies using my liberated, improvisational methods,.....and discuss how the experience of making this series of sketches was like taking a crash course in design".
