Jen Shaffer of Patterns by Jen (PBJ Patterns) is originally from SW Minnesota. Jen began her quilting journey in 2002. Twelve years later, she published her first pattern "Pinwheel Pizzazz". Now, she has published over 20 patterns in various magazines including Fons and Porter, Quilts and More and McCalls Quick Quilts.

While keeping her designs beginner friendly, she leans toward traditional piecing with a bit of modern flare. Her true passion lies in enjoying each step of the quilting process, and she is always excited to help new quilters find that same enjoyment of the craft!

Please contact Kim at if interested in attending a workshop with Jen on September 21, 2019.
