The first quilt Jenny designed and made was a cream tone-on-tone quilt back in 1992. This quilt was called The Heritage and introduced the first block-of-the-month quilt to be taught in sewing machine dealers stores across Australia. Jennys goal in making this stunning quilt was to introduce machinists to quilting with simple techniques and basic quilting. In doing this, sewers gained confidence, learned new techniques and made a beautiful quilt. Just because a quilt (or anything for that matter) is beautiful doesnt mean it has to be difficult, is Jennys catchphrase. The Heritage quilt was the most successful quilt taught in Australia, with ongoing classes for over five years. Hundreds of The Heritage quilts were made. Sewers now had a fresh approach to quilting, gaining confidence and the wonderful self-validation that completing a quilt gives to the creator.
Jennys Heritage is a quilt designed to do for machine embroiderers what The Heritage quilt did for sewers. It is as effortless as it is stunning introducing sewers to a machine embroidered quilt and teaching the more experienced quilters some of Jennys time-honored techniques, ones she has not published to date. No embroidery designs are embroidered directly onto the quilt. Instead, Jenny employs a user-friendly cut-and-paste technique called Embroidered Decoupage an approach that is amazing in its simplicity when it comes to machine embroidered quilts. You simply cannot fail with Jennys Heritage. Choose to make just one or two blocks from the quilt or several of the 16 glorious pillows we have included in this book or spread your wings and soar with the eagles and make the whole quilt. Go on! Grab hold of your courage with both hands and join Jenny as she gently guides you through her latest creation Jennys Heritage. You cant fail!
