Lectures

  • Trunk Show: Jen's Quilts & the Techniques Behind Them

  • What does all this mean?!? How to Read a Pattern and Understand It

  • Designing Quilts: How Tone, Pattern, Color, and Block Layout Change the Look of a Quilt

Half Day or Full Day Workshops - I teach all of my patterns so you can pick your favorite! Techniques I teach include curved piecing, foundation paper piecing, raw edge applique, reverse applique, and y seams. 

Curved Piecing with Many Moons or Broken Moons:

Learn 3 different techniques for curved piecing and try them all. Then participants can pick their favorite technique to make the rest of their blocks. I also discuss how layout, color, and fabric options change the look of each quilt. The full day workshop adds putting the blocks together and how to assemble a quilt on point. Participants can make Many Moons or Broken Moons, their choice. Limited number of kits are available for Broken Moons.

Skill level: Beginner to advanced quilter

 

FPP Fundamentals with Hexagon Blocks:

Learn and master foundation paper piecing basics with any of the 3 patterns in this FPP hexagon block series. This workshop covers how to construct simple FPP triangles then use them to make 18 different hexagon blocks. In the full day workshop, I also cover putting the hexagon blocks together with Y seams. For this workshop, participants only need to know how to work a sewing machine and come with an open mind. Participants choose from the three pattern options: Striped Hexi's, Equilateral Gone Awry, or Nuts About You

Skill level: Beginner to advanced quilter. 

 

FPP Fundamentals and Beyond with Bubbly Letters:

Learn and master the basics of foundation paper piecing then to move beyond the basics to construct more complex FPP blocks. In a half day workshop, most participants will finish making the letter i and if they're fast sewers they can work on a second letter. In a full day workshop, participants will complete the letter i and at least start another letter of their choice. Participants in this workshop do not need to know how to do foundation paper piecing. 

Skill level: Confident beginner to advanced quilter.
