Jen Kingwell inspiration

P1020143

Time flies when I am having fun - surrounding myself with the right kind of inspiration and the right kind of people :-)

It has already been a month since Jen Kingwell visited in Oslo, at Kathrines Quilte Stue's 4 days event, where I was the happy participant of 3 days.

Jen brought a lot of lovely quilts, a lot of inspiration and knowledge, mixed with her very pleasant personality.
I am taken, smitten, in love - with her way of thinking about fabrics and colours and all her lovely quilts!

Day one - I'm A Farmer's Daughter

The quilt is in Jen's new book. I love this book - I think I could easily make every project in it!

All the blocks from Thursday class. Even if they are different in colours and fabrics, they all work very well together on a neutral background. Food for thoughts......... :-)

We had the most magnificent lunches every day, we could shop until we dropped. Kathrine had brought most of her shop. The trunk show and the Show & Tell was great - and I am definitively adding Jen on my Top 3 Favourite Designer List :-)

Thank You Kathrine & her staff and Thank You Jen!

love Steam Punk and always thought of making it but haven't gotten to it yet - I don't even have the pattern - guess that comes first.
