You’ll leave this lecture entertained and motivated to use up your stash and create quick, interesting quilts.

Jen will also bring projects from her first book, Deploy That Fabric. The projects feature a range of quilts, bags, home accessories and small stitched items.

This lecture was previously “The Books Trunk Show”

  1. The DMQG enjoyed having Jen come and present her “Get Published” lecture. Lots of great information and insight into the publishing world! The afternoon included the “Hexagons Made Easy” workshop…it was fun to see everyone’s creative juices at work with the fun fabric kits that were included! Jen is very outgoing and fun to be with…you will feel like you have been friends forever by the end of the day! A definite must see if she is in your area…better yet, get your guild to have her come present…you won’t be disappointed!!

  2. The Houston MQG really enjoyed having Jen visit and present her lecture on Getting Published and then the Hexagon Workshop! The lecture was super informative and entertaining and her quilts were really quite lovely. The workshop was fun and useful. I didn’t know about the technique for facing an applique piece and found that to be something I will use in the future. I agree with the DMQG review above, very fun and informative day!
