Gail was inspired by TQS to create Thunderbirds Rising.

She writes, When Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson asked my to be on The Quilt Show, I immediately knew that I wanted to create something special for the show.

This medallion style quilt features new techniques, and measures 58″ x 58″, the perfect size for a dramatic wall quilt.  I have long been fascinated by our feathered friends and, living in the Southwest, the Thunderbird design is prominent in various art forms.  And, I have a new passion for checkerboard designs with their strong graphics in contrasting colors.

The pattern is available for sale on her website, click here.
