Alex took a machine quilting class from Jenny K. Lyon at Craft Napa. Jenny brought a wonderful quilt, Morning Breeze, demonstrating all kinds of quilting designs. It had everything from feathers to flowers and presented as a beautiful whole cloth quilt. This one will get you motivated to find those quilt sandwiches and start practicing.

Jenny used the same technique for creating this piece as she did for her Boho Cutwork Denim Jacket. (Watch how she did it in Show 2404.) It is made from hand-dyed wool, hand-dyed silk organza, and polyester thread. Jenny writes in her book, Free-Motion Quilting from Ordinary to Extraordinary, "Once quilted, the back became its own story, hence the name."

A machine quilter beyond compare, Jenny K. Lyon has created a quilt that just shimmers with the essence of fall. Golden Moments was Jenny's first quilt to land in the Houston Quilt Festival back in 2010 and it's not hard to see why it was selected for exhibit. The machine quilting is stunning. Take a few minutes to let your eyes wander over the quilt.

Jenny used Radiance fabric (a blend of silk and cotton) to give shimmer to her quilt. Click here for some of her tips with working with the fabric.
