Bold, colorful and stunning geometric designs with flying geese galore –that's how you know you're looking at one of Gail Garber's quilts! Her style has become immediately recognizable because of her talent for combining vivid colors with intricate piecework.
Students love her ability to make these designs achievable, even for novice quilt designers. In this multi-day design workshop, Gail will guide you through drafting and designing your own original designs.
You will receive individual attention when selecting fabrics for effective color and contrast and leave the class with the skills and confidence to create your own original design.
For Gail, quilting began as a whim when friends convinced her to take a hand-quilting class. Quiltmaking quickly became a passion. Her early quilts are traditional with conservative fabric choices. By 1984, she began exploring original design. Gail's first effort, Azimuth, pictured above, is a king-size medallion style quilt that features a mariner's compass in the center and variations of the compass throughout the quilt. This award winning quilt has been displayed at quilt venues around the world.
