Butterscotch Baskets Tutorial

 Hello Everyone,

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth......I've been spending time with the kids before they head off to school this week.  In between my 'kid' time, I was working on an online tutorial for Butterscotch Baskets.  The tutorial is a companion to your pattern. 
You can find the link at the top of my blog called Butterscotch Baskets Tutorial.  I took pictures and documented the process the entire step of the way.  I'm actually going to use it as a teaching tool this week while I lead a Butterscotch Baskets class at Cloth and Quilts.

On another note, our middle son and his family camped at Union Reservoir for three days.  The lake is about an hour north of the cabin in the Carson Iceberg Wilderness Area.  First, we brought the little kids up with us to spend a day at the cabin on Thursday.  Then Mom & Dad arrived to take them further up into the mountains for camping.
We drove up to their campsite Saturday afternoon and had dinner with them.  We were there for about five hours.  The little kids took us exploring, and I couldn't believe how dirty we got in that short period of time!  I guess I'm still a kid a heart.  I love to go exploring and see what's around the next bend in the trail.
The kids had a ball.  They immediately took us to see the rope swing.  I so wanted to try it out, but my guardian angel (Mr. Joe) tapped me on the shoulder and suggested that it might not be the best know weight limits and all that!

Our son took this picture of the sunrise yesterday morning while he was out early with their dog, Copper.  What a glorious and spiritual way to begin your day. 
It's a beautiful new day dawning for all of us.  Make it a good one for you and everyone around you.



  1. Sounds like everyone had fun, and that sunrise is stunning. Xx

  2. Beautiful quilt, beautiful pictures. I enjoy your blog.

  3. Thx for the tutorial and the great pictures. Probably wise that you did not do the "swing". I understand though!

  4. What a great background for your Butterscotch Baskets quilt! Sounds like it was a fun day in the outdoors! Very pretty too.

  5. What a gorgeous camp site, Lynn! Hopefully your inner child used her imagination to swing on the rope swing!
