Gwen Gwinner Quilts

Around 20 years ago, Gwen’s daughter asked her to make a memory quilt from the clothes from a family member that had passed away. With basic sewing skills, she knew how to cut and sew the many blocks that eventually became a quilt top.

Wanting to learn hand quilting, Gwen purchased a quilt frame from a shop, and a Mennonite friend sat down to show her the process of hand quilting.

Gwen’s passion for quilt-making in the traditional Mennonite style has continued since that day! Gwen says, “It always amazes me how a bit of fabric can become beautiful quilts. I enjoy the process to the very last stitch!”
