Gail writes about Climate Change, "A study in extremes: warm versus cool and gently curving versus jagged edginess. Climate change is neither gradual or calm, but can be quite violent as evidenced by the hurricanes and wildfires of 2017, four years following the completion of the quilt. Freezer paper foundation and curved seam piecing as well as hand embroidery. Longarm machine quilting by Kris Vierra."

Festival of the Cranes #24 is a raffle quilt. Gail writes, "I have long had a passion for group quilts and began designing and coordinating group quilts since the mid 1980s. Every year, I design a new raffle quilt for Hawks Aloft that 12 of us gather in a retreat setting to stitch the quilt top, usually in one day. It’s my little Sweat Shop with mountains of fun and friendship."
