Not Her Best Apr 7, 2008
I own many of Thimbleberry quilt books,however this one is the biggest disappointment. There are very few quilt patterns and most are repeats of her patterns from other formates.
There are many thimbleberry quilt books that are much better. Save your money on this one.
If you have to have one, send me the cost of postage and I will mail you mine.
A LONG TIME QUILTER
Never judge a book by its cover... Feb 21, 2004
Just because the title of a book has the word "Cottage" in it, does not mean it is a book about Cottage Design. Who the author is, has a great deal of bearing on what you will find inside the pages of said book. Any one who would pick up a book by Lynette Jensen would realize she is a quilter and "Designer" of quilts. Ms.Jensen is a very well known and talented designer. If "Cottage" design isn't your style...then neither is this book. I happen to love her work, the book is a pleasure to look at, to gather ideas or improvise your own from hers. I enjoy looking at it over and over.
Great book for Quilters Jan 25, 2003
Lynette Jensen is very well known by those who quilt. Her books contain mainly quilting patterns or ideas for decorating and entertaining with quilts and accessories. For those of you who quilt this book will not be a dissappointment. It delivers all of the great quilting patterns, tips and hints that her books are so well known for. This is a great book for a quilter.
Pretty Picture book Nov 14, 2002
This book would make a lovely coffeetable book. If you are looking for a book about quilting then this is not for you. I found this book to mostly showcase what the author's accomplishments rather than teach others. I love Jensen's quilts but feel like I've been cheated with this book.
Delightful and Informative Jul 13, 2002
Lynette Jensen has given us an information packed,beautiful book here. She has lovingly decorated her newly married daughter's starter home in tipical Lynette style.There are how to's for a lovely Bridal Shower,a Garden Party,Fourth of July picnic and much more! There are vintage postcards to copy, great decoupage ideas and many wonderful recipes,gifts,not to mention lovely quilts (including a fabulous yo-yo quilt!) I don't see how you could expect any more from a book. It's just wonderful! Can you tell I love this book?
