About the Author:Jenny Wilding Cardon has been designing since high school. Back then, she would create eccentric, rebellious items of clothing, and then make her friends wear them to school. After graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Women’s Studies, Jenny spent three years with her husband in Seattle. A hot spot of American quiltmaking, Seattle introduced her to the vibrant, varied art, along with the many coworkers she befriended while working as a copywriter for Martingale & Company. Jenny’s passion for quiltmaking inspired her to publish a book of baby-quilt designs (The Little Box of Baby Quilts, 2007). Her quilts have also appeared inMcCall’s Quilting and on the covers of American Patchwork & Quilting’s Quilts and More and Quilter’s Newsletter’s Quilt It for Kids.
Jenny now lives in a quiet, quite sleepy bedroom community north of Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband of ten years, Brett, her two sons—Jack, 6, and Charlie, 2—and Niko Bear, a big silver and black cat. Along with sewing of all sorts, Jenny’s current interests include eating store-bought birthday cakes, listening to classic rock and current soul, writing, and knitting.
