Jen Kingswell designs

Posted by

I was honoured to custom quilt this quilt top for Leanne.  It is the result of the Lazy Punk Workshop at Fabric Spark, a Toronto quilt shop on  the Danforth.  I believe the teacher was influenced by a  Jen Kingswell design but  came up with a different way to put it together.

In the time that I have been quilting for Leanne, she has  switched  from a  traditional to  a modern fabric pallet.  There was a beautiful selection of yummy modern fabrics in this quilt. The great thing about working from the front of my machine is that I got to enjoy all those beautiful fabric combinations, including the fuzzy cutting for the centre of many of the blocks.  I quilted this with a combination of freehand and custom ruler work.

This next quilt was made by Marianne, a member of the Etobicoke Quilt Guild.  It is the Jen Kingswell pattern called “Long Time Gone”.  Marianne and a few other guild members each started  workIng on this quilt design at the beginning of the “Covid” shutdown.  I am sure they cheered each other on while in isolation.

Marianne dug into her autumn coloured fabric stash to make this beautiful quilt.  I find this sampler style to be more traditional than many of the Kingwell designs.  If you are a little nervous of doing a whole mix of blocks and fabrics this design might be a good place to start.

I love quilting the baptist fan design, it works well on traditional and modern quilts.  The quilt consults for both these quilts were done online thru emails. I am so happy to finally be having folks (masked) come thru my door to discuss the quilting designs in person.
