Ruth Jensen did a lecture/trunk show at our local guild (Thumb Butte Quilters Guild) yesterday. Her children's quilts are one of the best for adding dimension and touchy feely for children without being pulled apart. Her childlike figures are sewn into the seams so it is difficult to be pulled apart by little hands. You will note I did not say impossible. Something else I would like to add is a special thank you to Ruth, as she not only made a pattern specifically for our guild but she also gave every member in attendance a free pattern. We usually number about 100 - 120 per meeting. Her tutorials on her web site are great.
