Jeni Baker of In Color Order is pretty much the most
adorable delightful person ever (okay, we will reserve adorable for her bunny, George). She tells you how to choose fabrics, what you can make with them, and now she is a fabric designer for Art Gallery Fabrics! I got to check out her new fabrics first-hand at Quilt Market!
I met Jeni first at the previous Quilt Market, in Kansas City. She is the kindest and most creative person ever! Seriously people.

Here is a little interview with fabric designer Jeni Baker!
Me: I really love the fact that before you became a fabric designer for Art Gallery Fabrics, I know you were already a huge fan of their work. How did the design work come about for you?Jeni: I have been a fan of their fabrics for a while, first falling in love with their Oval Elements and then discovering Pat Bravo's beautiful collections. I started to use more and more of their fabrics and began interacting with them through social media. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was working together with them on projects, becoming a member of their Fat Quarter Gang, and finally joining them as a licensed designer!
Me: I know that you are a huge fan of collecting Pyrex. I sort of feel that 'Color Me Retro' has that sort of vibe. How did your design process come about, and which prints did you design first?
Me: How did you decide which colorways to use for your fabrics?
Me: Your blog is hugely popular. How do you feel that blogging led to other opportunities for you creatively?
Me: I know this is new for you, but what is the best part of being a fabric designer?
Jeni's booth in the Art Gallery section at Quilt Market perfectly went along with her fabrics. The quilt and the kitchen accessories in the form of oven mitts and an apron were just spot on! I loved them, and you can definitely visualize them coordinating perfectly with your favorite Pyrex!
