How to Foundation Paper Piece with Gail Garber | Contemporary Irish Chain Quilt
(Show 2111) Along with being a Quilt teacher and Author, Gail is the founder of Hawks Aloft, a rescue organization that cares for and educates the public about birds of prey that can no longer live in the wild due to injuries. Gail brought along three owls to visit the studio. They watched as she shared her method of using a flexible curve ruler, a pencil, and freezer paper to create a free-form drawing for making curved flying geese. She also has tips for eliminating waste when foundation paper piecing and for removing the foundation paper. Also in this show, Ricky was in Paducah when an antique quilt caught his attention. The quilt featured a variation on an Irish Chain. He breaks down that quilt into workable strip sets and creates an updated contemporary version. Gail's Pattern, Thunderbirds Rising, was created specifically for The Quilt Show. Click here to purchase.
