A day with lovely Jen Kingwell – part two

Then there was opened for an inspiration evening with Jen’s Show and Tell. 

Several girls had made some of Jen’s quilts and the show and tell started with showing these quilts.  I  am sorry I do not remember who have made these quilts. So just enjoy the photos:




Finally it was time for Jen to show her quilts.  As you see there is a big pile of quilts. She is a lovely inspiring lady. Love her way of using all kind of fabrics together.  When making a scrappy quilt you really do not have to think that this fabric goes with this fabric to make perfect blocks.  Everything goes together.  And as me she LOVES circles.  That is one shape that makes me smile.

Enjoy the photos from Show and Tell.  The first part is the quilts that there is separate patterns or booklets.  (And I know Kathrine is having all of Jen’s patterns and templates, so if there is something that just calls on you…..give Kathrine a call). 




Now there was time to show the quilts from her book Quilt Lovely.  One of my favorite books.  I have no idea how many time I have looked through this book.  Think I want to make all of the quilts and the pillows.





I had a wonderful day filled with inspiration, laughter and good friends.  I look a bit tired at this photo with Jen, but it had been a very long intense day (up at 06:00 and this photo was taken by 21:30, back home by midnight driving in heavy rain, but it was SO worth it). I am so happy to have met Jen in person and I know I will have a lot of scrappy time in my sewing room. This is the Daisy Do quilt that we started to make and the more I see it, the more I love it.  Now my head is spinning filled with inspiration, colours and shapes.  Thank you Jen for all the inspiration.

love Jen Kingwell's patterns - right now I'm working on Gypsy Wife and started with a pack of Allison Glass fabric and went from there - it's so much fun. Can't wait to see what YOU do with one of her patterns!

En eksplosjon i farger og mønstre. Fantastisk. Og dette har til nå gått meg hus forbi.
