WARNING: NO PATTERNS WORTH MY TIME Jun 2, 2008
This was just a disappointment from the word go. I was expecting patterns and the few that were provided were mundane craft items, and not any quilts at all. This was a hustle pure and simple.
Misleading.... Jul 11, 2006
I ordered this book, hoping to get the pattern for the Prairie Pines quilt (featured on the cover). Boy you can imagine how disappointed I was to find this pattern NOT included in the book. Instead the book seems to be devoted to home decorating tips, a few lackluster recipes, and a few small wall quilts.
While I will probably make a few of the wall quilts included, I'm disappointed that I will have to buy another book to get the pattern I want. This book is fine, but misleading... I was hoping to get started on my holiday quilting. Now I will have to wait until next month to buy the book with the right pattern.
Disappointed Dec 16, 2003
I'm an avid quilter and love many of the quilts offered by Lynette Jensen. I had seen her on TV and she displayed the very quilt on the cover of the book. I ordered the book for the pattern and was very dismayed when I got the book that it didn't contain the pattern. I'm very disappointed that many of the items featured in her book didn't have patterns to go with them. In the back of the book what how to order them making me feel as if I purchased a catalog more than anything. The craft projects she did feature I found most to be generic.
The book is decent for decorating and a few craft ideas but don't buy the book thinking you can making everything in it without buying more books or patterns.
Imitation is the greatest form of flattery! Jan 21, 2001
I received this book from one of my sisters for an early birthday gift and enjoyed it greatly! Lynette is a very talented artist and decorator! Next Christmas, along with a friend, I will be decorating a kitchen of an 1840's home and we plan on "borrowing" several of Lynette's ideas. We especially liked the arrangement of the bowls and thought it would be a clever idea for the pantry. Thanks for the primer.
A BOOK THAT QUILTERS AND NON-QUILTERS WOULD ENJOY Oct 30, 2000
LYNETTE JENSEN'S BOOKS ARE A REAL JOY. SHE HAS A WAY WITH FABRIC AND DESIGN AND DISPLAY, THAT WHEN YOU OPEN HER BOOKS, YOU CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED ON ONE OF HER QUILT PATTERNS, PILLOWS, OR WALL HANGINGS. THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE EASY TO FOLLOW AND EVEN IF YOUR A NOVICE QUILTER YOU CAN SEW HER PATTERNS. I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK AND PICKED UP SOME OTHER GREAT DECORATING IDEAS AS WELL AS WONDERFUL QUILT PATTERNS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, MRS. JENSEN.
