About the Designer

Ruth Jensen

Ruth Jensen received her Bachelor's degree in Business Merchandising with an emphasis in clothing and textiles in 1976 from Brigham Young University. After working briefly for a clothing manufacturer, she took on the full-time responsibilities of wife, mother of seven (grandmother to 23 wonderful grandchildren), and homemaker. After her three oldest children married, Ruth began developing her quilt designs (1998). Currently, she has published over 100 individual patterns and 2 quilt books. Recently she has turned her design skills to the creation of beautiful centerpieces. She has worked very hard to keep her designs affordable if not free.

Ruth enjoys many forms of art including; watercolors, oils, stained glass, floral design, home decorating, etc. As a mother and grandmother, she has learned to be highly productive during the few moments each day that she has to dedicate to her art and quilt designs. She and her husband, Greg, live in Provo, Utah.
