May 14: Jenny Pedigo


Guild Presentation: Trunk Show


Jenny made her first quilt in 2002 and fell in love with the quilting process!  She has a unique ability to see the secondary design that can be created with quilting which gives the perfect compliment to the piecing.  After 7 years of quilting for others full time Jenny was looking for a change and discovered the Modern Online Quilting Community.  She started playing with pattern design, which is now her new quilting love.  Jenny enjoys the challenge of putting a twist on the process, whether it be through design, color or quilting and loves sharing her quilting passion. 


Join us for a closer look at some of her favorite creations!

Gems & Joy


This slide lecture and trunk show chronicles MJ's 20-year adventure in learning to create the biggest diamonds in the world in cloth. In addition to showing the diamond quilts, she'll talk about how she selects gems that qualify as "divas and drama queens" and what they teach us about how to add sparkle to any art quilt. She'll also talk about the techniques to create and assemble the hundreds of pieces in each diamond, materials she uses to create the wash of color and light across a gem's surface, and the quilting techniques that enhance a gem's facets.
