Jenifer Dick began quilting in 1993 when, on a whim, she signed up for a beginning quiltmaking class. From that first stitch she was hooked. In 2001 she discovered appliqué, and it changed her quilting life. She has been speaking to guilds and teaching appliqué to quiltmakers ever since. She is the author of 4 quilt books on topics from traditional to modern, and her work has been published in many other books and magazines. Jenifer lives in Harrisonville, Missouri, with her husband and 3 children. Follow her on her blog at 42quilts.com.
