Quiltmaking became a big part of her life more than twenty years ago when Lynette Jensen attended an antique quilt show. Since then, she has shared her passion through her quilting classes and her Thimbleberries patterns and books. Now, you have the best of Thimbleberries right in your hands. This collection contains more than fifty treasures for you to discover. Each project reflects the Thimbleberries style that so many quilters cherish -- simple designs that have an antique flavor.
