Jen Kingwell inspiration


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

2015-09-16 19.46.59

A creative day passes so fast - this is my block from day 1 :-)

Day no. 2: Daisy Do




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 made in Wednesday class.

Thursday class: Steam Punk



My blocks ready for the sewing machine.



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.

Those quilts are ALL lovely. I feel inspired just from looking at the photos! You'll have plenty to sew this winter. Blessings, Gretchen
