Bold, colorful, and stunning geometric designs with flying geese galore – that’s how you know you’re looking at one of Gail’s quilts! Her style has become immediately recognizable because of her talent for combing vivid colors with intricate piecework. Her geometric star quilts and pictorial quilts have won awards at shows throughout theU.S.and have been featured in publications worldwide. Students love her ability to make these designs achievable even for novice quilt designers.
Today, Gail lectures and conducts workshops to quilters throughout the U.S.and abroad. Her classes for novices include instruction in color and composition, introduction to paper piecing, and drafting, drawing and design. For the experienced quilter, Gail’s classes in design are popular wherever she travels. She also leads tours for quilters and birdwatchers to exciting “off-the-beaten-path” locations.
In her other life, Gail is the Executive Director for Hawks Aloft, a New Mexico conservation organization. During her non-quilting time, Gail may be found working with schools and various interest groups in the community, promoting raptor and conservation awareness, flying in a small aircraft locating nests of large raptors and eagles, or conducting surveys on foot in remote, back-country areas of New Mexico. Hawks Aloft Website:  http://hawksaloft.org
