About the Author Debra Gabel:

Born in Middletown, New York, Debra started sewing as a child and quilting as a teen. After several professional moves around the United States she finally settled in Clarksville, Maryland, with her husband, Gary and their 3 sons. Armed with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in graphic design, Debra worked for many years as an art director in the packaging industry, where she designed and prepared art for paper-handled shopping bags, consumer goods, tissue, decorative boxes and other packaging. She has maintained her independent graphic design business, Mixed Media, since 1988.

Debra has had success entering and showing her quilts in regional and national quilt shows; has had her quilts appear in calendars, quilt books and websites, and has been featured in and authored magazine articles.

Debra intends to continue lecturing, teaching and evolving as a quilter, speaker and author. She would like to travel the world through quilting.
