Are You Ready for the Jen Jones Quilt Challenge?
The Jen Jones Collection is full of inspirational ideas and quilts. The quilts in Gallery Two this year were all inspired by a single quilt in Jen’s collection and were made by one quilter. Taking this idea further, we are thinking how wonderful it would be to have a gallery full of quilts made by others who have also taken inspiration from Jen’s quilts. With that in mind, we have decided to issue a challenge to all quilters to make a small quilt inspired by any quilt (or aspect of a quilt) in Jen’s collection.
