For those of you who may not 'know' Jen Kingwell, let me give you bit of a background....she is an Australian quilter/pattern and fabric designer/quilt shop owner/author/teacher! Yup, she wears MANY quilting hats! If you're not familiar with her quilts then you NEED to hurry over to AbyQuilts Blog. May (aka Aby) just completed a weekend workshop with Jen and talk about inspiration! Her blog posts are FULL of incredible eye candy...a trunk show of Jen's quilts!...You really MUST visit!
Anyway... May's posts made me realize that I need to break open the seal to my Gardenvale Charm Pack...yes, this is Jen Kingwell's fabric line and I borrowed the perfect die to cut it out with! (Thanks Jane!) I am teaming Jen's fabric up with Zen Chic 'Paper'...yup, this traditional quilter is going Vintage Modern! haha

|Team up Jen's 'Gardenvale' with 'Paper' and the Drunkard Path die....|
|'Paper' by Zen Chic will be the perfect neutral...I... 'errrr... mean the perfect 'low volume' mate! When in Rome...|
If you would like to see more Jen Kingwell quilts then check out my Pinterest Board titled 'Jen Kingwell Designs'..and be inspired!!
Hey, while writing this I discovered that Jen and I have a lot more in common besides quilting...we both have three incredible daughters and we are both married to Richards...we both live on islands, we both love chocolate and we both worked with children in our 'other' lives...OK that's a bit of a stretch....Jen birthed babies and I taught them to read! :o)) And WHO doesn't love chocolate?! Life is good!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
