About the Author

Jen started patchwork and quilting while at nursing school and was hooked immediately. After a distinguished career in emergency, surgical and, finally, midwifery, she purchased a long-arm quilting machine. Shortly after, she opened a quilting and fabric retail outlet. This store quickly doubled in size, spurring Jen to open a second outlet. These businesses were sold to make way for "Amitié Textiles" in Gardenvale Victoria, Australia. Ninety percent of Jen's work is hand pieced. It usually has a touch of applique and is quilted in the big stitch method, which she has been doing for twenty years. She has taught patchwork and big-stitch quilting to hundreds of classes since entering the quilting industry. http://www.jenkingwelldesigns.blogspot.com and http://www.amitie.com.au

Praise For…

"I love the matte finish paper in Quilt Lovely and the gorgeous photos of the quilts out in the real world." --Poppyprint

"I absolutely love the format of each project's instructions. In addition to the basics (materials list, cutting instructions, block assembly instructions, quilt assembly instructions), every project includes a styled picture of the finished quilt or pillow AND a flat picture of the finished project. The styled pictures drew me in, and the flat shots helped me confirm that, yup, I definitely want to make this!" --Imagine Gnats
