Butterscotch Baskets Revisited

Hello Everyone,
I love, I repeat, LOVE to get photos of my quilts made in different colorways than my original.  Pat, from Northern California, came to see me at the quilt show in Grass Valley, and showed me pictures of her Butterscotch Baskets which she renamed to Baskets on the Mesa.

Pat said it took her 3-1/2 years, and look what she has to show for her efforts.  Well done Pat!  I love your rich colors and precision piecing.

Here's my original Butterscotch Baskets in a photo taken at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. This quilt is very scrappy.

I had to throw in this picture of the reflection in the water.  It was so unusual to have water in this stream since we were in our drought at the time.

Here's another Butterscotch taken at Quilt Shop on Main in Hutchinson, MN. This quilt was made using only Thimbleberries fabrics.

Don't be afraid to change up those colors and make the quilt your own.  Your reward will be a beautiful quilt like Pat's.
My grand daughter is coming over after high school to help me stuff patterns.  I have a stack of printing just waiting to be stuffed and priced.
I'm headed to the Flying Needles Quilt Guild in Woodland for a lecture this Thursday evening.  Then I'm going back on Saturday for a Patchwork Math workshop.  I have a quick turn-around time to get ready to be a vendor at the Wine Country quilt show sponsored by the Moonlight Quilt Guild in Santa Rosa the first weekend in June.  My booth is right by the front entrance, so EVERYONE stops by.  Talk about FUN!  I also tend to get a little hoarse since I try to talk to all quilters who come to my booth.
I don't have time to quilt, so someone has to quilt for me today!



  1. Pat's quilt is stunning! I think Butterscotch Baskets is one of my favorite quilts of yours, Lynn! On second thought, they all are! I'll be sewing for you today..with your Patchwork Math book, too!

  2. No matter the fabrics, stunning quilt.

  3. Oh! See you in Santa Rosa!! Yay!!! Hugs, H
