Day 29: Jaftex 85th Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to day 29 of the Jaftex 85th Anniversary Blog Hop! Jaftex is the parent company of Henry Glass & Co., Studioe Fabrics and Blank Quilting. We are hosting the blog hop here and will be posting some photographs on the Henry Glass PinterestInstagram and Facebook pages too.

We invited over 30 designers, quilt industry friends and bloggers to help us celebrate. Bundles of Henry Glass' Folio Basics, Studioe's Peppered Cottons or Blank's Fusion Illusion were sent to our friends and we asked them to make something special for our blog hop. They did not disappoint! Each day we will reveal the designs on the designers' blogs and today we welcome Jenny Wilding Cardon.

Jenny Wilding Cardon

Jenny Wilding Cardon has been designing with fabric since high school. Back then, she would create eccentric items of clothing and make her friends wear them to school. She spent three years in Seattle working as a copywriter for Martingale, and has worked offsite for the company for a dozen more.

Jenny’s published a collection of baby-quilt designs (The Little Box of Baby Quilts, 2007) and a book about upcycled sewing (ReSew, 2011) with Martingale. Her quilts have appeared on the covers of Quilts and More and Quilt It for Kids, as well as in McCall’s Quilting. She lives near Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband of 15 years, Brett, and her sons—Jack, 11, and Charlie, 7.

Hop over to the Martingale Publisher's website to see Jenny's project. Martingale has been a good quilting friend for the Henry Glass family and we appreciate their support.

Visit Martingale when you want to create with confidence! For nearly 40 years, Martingale has published quality books on quilting, sewing, knitting, crochet, and crafts, which have have sold more than 20 million copies. Visit ShopMartingale.com for books, eBooks, and ePatterns, plus their popular blog—Stitch This!
