Here's me in a Nutshell!
Jenifer began quilting in 1993 when on a whim, she signed up for a beginning quiltmaking class. From the moment she finished that first wall hanging, she was hooked. Jenifer considers herself a traditional quilter who appreciates all aspects of quiltmaking from historical research to contemporary art quilts to Modern quilting.
Her current book, Quilt Retro, is an appreciation of her early childhood interpreted through 11 Modern quilts and projects. In Quilt Retro, she guides you through the quilt design process - from inspiration to completion - encouraging you to make your own choices every step of the way.
Jenifer teaches invisible zigzag appliqué – a technique she has developed over the years to suit her need for perfection in the simplest method possible!
She is a member of the Lee’s Summit Quilt Guild; the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and the American Quilter’s Society. Jenifer previously wrote The Circuit Rider’s Quilt and Grapefruit Juice and Sugar: Bold Quilts Inspired by Grandmother’s Legacy for the Kansas City Star. In addition to making quilts and writing books, she is an editor of quilt books for Kansas City Star Books.
You may follow her on her blog 42 Quilts at 42quilts.blogspot.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/42Quilts.
Jenifer lives in Harrisonville, Mo. with her husband and three children.
