Happy Monday to everyone! Today I’m excited to introduce the newest Ruby Ruler™ Ambassador, Jenny Haynes of Papper Sax Sten! Ruby Ambassadors are designers I admire, from all over the world, and help me spread the word about my Ruby Ruler™, Ruby Minder™ quilting and embroidery tools. They demonstrate how they use them in their own work and tell us a little about their design process.
I have long admired Jenny’s beautiful work, discovering her when the Modern Quilt Guild awarded her quilts at Quiltcon 2019. Since then, I’ve watched Jenny create and teach curved piecing like the expert she is, and am so happy to have her share a bit about her process and using the Ruby Ruler™ in this interview, enjoy!

I talk alot about the idea of “quilt sparkle” in my workshops and classes. An idea that is illustrated so well when playing with color value. Color, layout, and the “sparkle” are all things that I feel very intuitively in my work, and its taken me a long time to create a verbal or written explanation as to exactly what I mean, or how I achieve it.READ MORE
