Jennifer Cabral

At our last IHQ meeting, we had the pleasure of admiring the work of one of our most prolific quilters, Jennifer Cabral.

Jennifer showed us masterpieces from her past, on up to recent projects. Her quilting and applique work is astounding. Although she does a lot of long-arm quilting, she still finds time to do hand quilting on some of her special projects.

Jennifer told us about her roots in Oklahoma, and how her two grandmothers taught her quilting. She told us many funny stories – about her childhood and family. She kept us laughing with her playful, self-depreciating sense of humor, while explaining about the different quilts and how and why she quilted them. A fun time was had by all.

Thank you Jennifer, for sharing your artistry and your stories!

A special thank you to Diane Mitchell and Trisha Cabral, for unfolding, holding and re-folding Jennifer’s artwork. Like Vanna White twins, only with quilts and not letters.
