Gail Garber, Albuquerque, NM


September 16 – Program:  Free Form Art Quilts

gail garberNever one to adhere to rules, Gail began breaking the quilting edicts soon after she learned the basics necessary to create an original design. Problems with bindings on corners? Just leave the corners off! It’s fun and easy to be your own designer, and to break away from the tedium of repetitive block design. Gail will lead us on a journey of exploration, from the valley of tradition, along the rocky road of great ideas gone wrong, to the rainbow peaks of increased creativity in quilts!

September 17 and 18 – Workshop:  The Goose is Loose

This is Holly’s quilt!

Gail’s most popular class introduces the student to original design in free-form shapes. Learn the drafting and piecing techniques for flying geese in the round, loose curves, or swirls. It is sew easy to do; students are often surprised at the simplicity of the technique, taught with no scary math words! These designs can be simply designed and easily stitched using freezer paper piecing techniques.

This is a 2-day class – cost of workshop is $70.  There is also a $10 workbook fee.

If you would like to see our 2019 Hill Country Quilt Guild quilt show

for the first time or the second or the third you can.

Click Here for the slideshow but be patient.  There are over 350 pictures and it will take minutes to download them before you can see the show.   Use your computer as mobile devices cause the website to crash probably due to the large file.

There is a pause button in the upper right hand corner of each picture if you wish to take a longer look at any quilt.
