The Traveling Quilt

Hello Everyone,
The good people at Quilt Haven on Main in Hutchinson, MN sent me a picture of Butterscotch Baskets on display in their shop.  Doesn't this look cozy?  Do you think they would mind, (or notice me) if I curled up on the bed for a long nap?  I could chat with customers and make myself right at home.

This is a huge milestone for me.  You seen Quilt Haven on Main is located in the historic Thimbleberries building, formerly Lynette Jensen's studio shop.  I became a quilter because I absolutely loved Lynette Jensen's style.  I wanted to emulate her sense of color and design.  You can read more about my passion for Thimbleberries HERE, my post from last February.

For me, this is bigger than having one of my quilts at Quilt Market.  This is coming home to where my journey started. To become first a quilter, and then a designer. 

If you would like to make a Butterscotch Baskets quilt identical to mine, contact Quilt Haven on Main and they will be very happy to send you a kit.  The fabric used to make this quilt is called Autumn Landscape by Lynette Jensen for RJR fabrics.

I'm working on a tutorial that I will post online to walk you through the process.  I'll hold your hand and be there the whole step along the way.

I'm off to the Preview Party tonight sponsored by In Between Stitches at the Purple Orchid Resort and Spa.  We will all display the quilts for the classes that we are offering over the next few months.  It's always a fun event.  Come on out and join us so you can sign up for the classes you want to take before the classes fill!



  1. Beautiful! I too am a huge fan of Lynette Jensen. Her color combinations draw me in. So glad you followed in her footsteps.

  2. a beautiful setting for a beautiful quilt. I too could curl right up there and stay for awhile.

    I will look forward to your tut. You are very generous with us out here in blogland.

  3. So glad for you Lynn. It is nice to see your goals come to fruition. Enjoy the party and love the quilt!

  4. Congrats on coming full circle. Enjoy the party, wish I could attend.

  5. All my life's a circle;
    Sunrise and sundown;
    Moon rolls through the nighttime;
    'Til the daybreak comes around.

    All my life's a circle;
    But I can't tell you why;
    Season's spinning round again;
    The years keep rollin' by.
