Meet Jennifer Norman of Forget Me Not Quilteds


This bright and cheery baby quilt was made by Quiltsy Team member Jennifer Norman of Forget Me Not Quilteds from Washington. She is donating this quilt to Seattle's New Beginnings which seeks to end domestic violence by empowering survivors and mobilizing community action. 

Jennifer was inspired to quilt in 2005 by her mom Shirley Ann, a quilter for 45 years. She loves 1930's fabrics, Aunt Grace style, and cottage florals. Her home is filled with vintage and collectible items that she likes to display on her table runners. Jennifer's Etsy shop is filled with over 200 items! These include: lap quilts, table runners, wall hangings, pillows, mug rugs, and so much more. I love her style and chose the photo below as an example...appropriately featuring forget-me-nots!


Say hi to Jennifer and her mom Shirley Ann. I wish they were my neighbors.

Jennifer puts her colors and patterns together in such a pleasing way. Of all the quilt shops on Etsy, I think her is the nicest. I will have to research Aunt Grace style, now, though. I wish they were my neighbors too!
