Jenny Bacon has been making quilts since the 1970’s when she took a class with the Embroidery Guild and learned to make a silk pincushion.
Jenny makes traditional quilts, describing needle-turn applique and hand quilting as favourite techniques, but she also makes art quilts, where she uses traditional techniques in non-traditional ways. She has won many awards and accolades for both styles of quilts.
Jenny is also a certified judge with the Quilters Guild of the British Isles and has travelled widely to judge quilt shows, including in the UK and the US, as well as New Zealand and her homeland Australia. Jenny is also an accomplished exhibition curator, being heavily involved in the biennial Golden Textures quilt exhibition.
Today I’m talking to Jenny at the Aotearoa Quilters education seminar in Wellington, New Zealand, where Jenny is teaching a three day intensive workshop titled ‘Judging at Quilt Shows’. Jenny lives in Maryborough on the East Coast of Australia.
