A Weekend with Jen Kingwell

I have just spent one of the most relaxing weekends sewing with Jen Kingwell at Hettie’s Patch, South Australia. Jen resides in Victoria and is the proud owner of Amitie Textiles in Gardenvale, Victoria. Set against backgrounds of soft greys and black polka dots Jen’s scrappy quilts are an amazing mix of colours, using geometrics and florals, handpiecing and applique that quietly say touch me, love me, use me! Jen has just released her first book Quilt Lovely from which we worked on Spring Fever. Another delight to work with is Jen’s fabric range Gardenvale. Jen has given me permission to post photos of her quilts here. Please do not copy these but instead, buy her book. You will not be disappointed! More excitement is that Jen is teaching for me at Victor Harbor in August 2016. Bookings are open so go to my retreats page to book in. We have not chosen a project yet but believe me you will love whatever we do.
