Gwen Diehn   You can view online at the Sketchbook Project site, Gwen Diehn’s Volume 15 sketchbook, “2019 Daytimer”. It is the beautiful product of a year of disciplined, weekly painting and illustration. Set within a frame of the now-empty paints she used to complete her book, Diehn documented her observations from each week of 2019 by painting over, through, and around her appointment book. This book is a visual presentation of sketchbook-as-catalog, putting to paper her inner thoughts and the changes throughout a year of her life.

 Seriously gorgeous Habu textiles

Lisa Walton has been making use of this time of isolation and has been recording video chats with some of the world’s inspirational quilters. The talks are usually based on a single quilt which has either won a major award or used some original techniques or just a brilliant quilt. The conversations are casual and explore the inspiration and processes involved in making as well as often having some interesting personal connections. They are being released every few days on Lisa’s YouTube Channel and are part of the playlist called Quilt Stories.
