Instructor Bio:
In a previous life Jen Carlton Bailly probably sold you a pair of jeans or khakis at The Gap. Today you'll find her covered in thread and searching down the latest inspiration for a quilt. A self proclaimed master at curves, she finds pleasure in creating quilts with secondary patterns that make you stop and wonder.
Originally from Utah, Jen found her way to Portland, Oregon via Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Seattle. While Portland is amazing, she misses the dry desert and the Rocky Mountains.
Jen has a love for: cats, cats on quilts, cats wearing costumes, baking, sewing, gin rummy, fabric, Vespas, and the Oxford Comma. Jen has no love for: Radio Head (she knows, she knows), socks, wool (she's allergic), Candyland, and being called Jenny.
