Back Cover Information

A Place in the Sun is a double-sided quilt totally created in a 200 mm x 200 mm hoop, pieced with the Jenny Join for a perfectly flat seam. This is a quilt that incorporates traditional patchwork and quilting techniques that are all achieved in an embroidery hoop that takes advantage of 21st century technology. The Jenny's Magic Techniques include: multi-layered embroidered appliqué, quilting and built-in cutting lines to eliminate the need of ever measuring before cutting. All parts and sections of A Place in the Sun is a double-sided quilt as well!

We trust you will enjoy this fascinating journey to your special 'place in the sun' and that you will as excited by the easy techniques as we were creating them.

About the Author Jenny Haskins:

Jenny Haskins lives by the belief that if you 'believe in yourself all things are possible' and 'it is never too late to be what you could have been' and that you can do anything that you set your heart on.

Passionate about colour and its many facets Jenny was an artist for years using a variety of mediums, her favourite being on glaze painting on porcelain which she taught in her studio for many years. She has painted on fabric, silk, wood and canvas and as her children (Simon, Samantha and Jason) state if you stand still long enough mum will paint you.

Temporarily trading her brushes and paint for needle and thread using 21st century technology Jenny now explores the creative world or machine embroidery. In 1991 she joined the Pfaff sewing machine company in Australia as the National Education and Training manager, later being promoted to National Marketing manager she continued working in this capacity until 1997 at which time Jenny decided to venture into the world of publishing and in 1999 started her own company

Now being joined by her son Simon, this creative duo are considered leading forces in the machine embroidery world. Jenny and Simon are hailed for their original designs and easy techniques. Their classes and seminars are inspiring and frequently life-changing events for their students who, with Jenny and Simon’s guidance, learn to bring artistry to their work. Jenny and now Simon run regular workshops in the United States and Australia with Jenny having her first ‘Jenny Haskins’ Accreditation Academy, for licensing teachers, to be held in Knoxville, June 2008. Jenny has edited 18 books and is the past editor of a machine embroidery magazine along with sold out quilting books including 'Color Purple', ‘Federation Quilt’ and the ‘Millennium Quilt’. These quilts are a testimony to her skills as an artist and editor.
