Jen Kingwell Behind the Scenes Background Lacy Donkey Grey
Jen Kingwell seems to be one of the most masterly of all the master quilters. From Australia, her reach is global and her quilting skills and design talents are kind of legendary. She is always swarmed at Quilt Market and constantly touring around teaching classes attending show. Like most other Australians I've met, she's incredibly friendly and open. I like this quote from Jen that I found on her blog, "Bright colours always attract me and I am quite often adding black and white or grey to a quilt. Most people think this is because I am a Collingwood supporter (Aussie Rules football team) and these are the team colours but I just think I love black and white!"
She started designing fabric for Moda last year, and took a pretty traditional vintage-style approach to her fabrics, but this collection is different. She created a series of very pretty, muted background fabrics called "Behind the Scenes" and I chose what I think are the best of the group.
Spark - Great low volume additions to any stash. I like the quiet way they will play a supporting role. I'd pair them with something really bright though, like these.
Please note that all fabric is sold in 1/2 yard increments. If you want 1 yard, please order a quantity of 2. If you want 2 yards, you will need to order a quantity of 4.
