About the author:

Thimbleberries is the brainchild of internationally-known designer and quilting authority, Lynette Jensen of Hutchinson, Minnesota. Twenty-one years ago, with the introduction of her first quilt pattern, Lynette transitioned from an avid quilt collector to an accomplished quilt and fabric designer.

Thimbleberries has emerged as a worldwide leader in quilting, sewing, and home decorating. Fabric lines, released several times a year in coordinated collections, consist of distinctive designs, printed on the finest quality 100 percent cotton. Quilt patterns, with easy-to-follow instructions and dozens of illustrations, inspire a bevy of beautiful quilts, wall hangings, table toppers, pillows, and home decorating instructions.

Lynette is also a best-selling author who has inspired a generation of dedicated quilters to feather their nests with Thimbleberries fabrics, quilt patterns, and books. Her books are an excellent resource for all quilters, whether you’re a beginner, or a master.

Thimbleberries products are available in more than 2,400 independent quilt shops. Many of these shops host a Thimbleberries Quilt Club. Club members meet regularly across the United States and around the world to meet in a comfortable, relaxed setting to enjoy the wonderful craft of quilting.

MY REVIEW:

Needless to say, I was honestly delighted to see another book by Lynette Jensen.   Each of the designs come with easy to follow instructions and great visuals.  Projects range in size from 32″ x 32″ to 112″x 120″ and there is also instructions for an 18″ pillow.  This book is also appropriate for beginners, as there is a great section of “General Instructions”, that is very helpful.   With 23 beautiful designs, this book is truly an excellent value.

This  I hope you get a chance to check out this new book at your favorite quilt shop.  Of course, if you don’t see it let them know you’re interested. It is such a new book they might night be aware of it.  Don’t forget you can also check it out, as well as buy it online at Landauer Publishing, as well as Amazon.

  1. Thimble berries has some great looking books! The ones I own are very cool! Can’t wait to add more to my quilting “library”.

  2. My favorite book is yours of course. I have almost all your others and this one would just be the topping on the cake. Other than yours I like Seasonal Silhouettes by Edyta Star.
