A day with lovely Jen Kingwell – part one

Some time since I bought Jen Kinwells book Quilt Lovely and it has been one of my favorite books.  And when I heard that Kathrines Quiltestue had invited her to Norway, I imidiately signed up for one of her classes.  Finally I got to meet this wonderful lady.


Started very early from home to be in time for the class.  I knew I had a wonderful day waiting for me.  The classes Kathrine is hosting is always great.  So a big thank you to Kathrine and her crew hosting this.


The class I had joined was for the Daisy Do quilt.  I love the scrappy look of it.  Now I can dig deep down in my box of scraps.


Jen is a great teacher, and we learned some tricks in hand stitching these blocks.


As usual there is not much done during the day.  We were chatting, shopping, laughing and in between some sewing LOL.


At the end of the day I suggested to put together some of the blocks that was made during the day. I guess we all had used some time to select matcing fabrics for our block.


But when these blocks came together on the black chambrey background, they all came together very good. So one thing I learned in the progress making scrap quilts, is that eveything goes together. 

Kathrine is always bringing a lot of inspiration and temptations from her shop.




And always the big question LOL, did I buy something??


Of course (BIG SMILE).  Kathrine is always putting together these wonderful collection of fabrics. I bought her background bundle with  low volume fabrics and the bundle she had put together for the Steampunk quilt.  A background for the Daisy Do and I just LOVED the background with writing. 

Next post will be photos from Jen’s show and tell.
