Pine Belt Quilters were treated to a delightful trunk show by guest fiber artist Gail Bachorik at our November meeting. Gail lives in Milton, FL, where she creates her original designs. Her favorite subjects are flowers but she also often includes fish, lizards, squirrels and butterflies in her realistic works. She usually works from her own photos to arrive at her design. Sometimes she manipulates the pictures to create a more abstract piece. She meticulously gathers her fabric to achieve the exact colors she wants and might use up to fifty different fabrics and a hundred thread colors in a piece. She constructs her works by machine using raw-edge appliqué, thread-painting, and free-motion quilting.
