Ruby Ruler Ambassador Papper Sax Sten

 

Happy Monday to you all! Our heating is currently broken and its bit cold in the house. Fingers crossed the repairman coming in an hour can fix it quickly. (Send warm thoughts!)

In the meantime, I wanted to share a link to my video interview with Britain-Based quiltmaker Jenny Haynes of Papper Sax Sten. She is one of my Ruby Ruler™ Ambassadors and I love seeing how she is using the Ruby Ruler™ to check color values on her curvy-pieced quilt designs. She manages to create very interesting tunnel and tubular effects using curved piecing and color value.

Ruby Ruler Ambassador Papper Sax Sten

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!

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
