May 14: Jenny Pedigo

Guild Presentation: Trunk Show

Jenny made her first quilt in 2002 and fell in love with the quilting process!  In 2007 she started her own longarm quilting business in order to work from home. Jenny 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 fell in love and soon after started playing with pattern design which is now her new quilting love.  Jenny loves the challenge of putting a twist on quilting, whether it be through design, color or quilting and loves that she can share her quilting passion with her sisters.
