Jacquelynne Steves

In the studio this week…

So, here’s the thing. I am working on LOTS of stuff. LOTS. But… they are projects for 2016, so I can’t show them yet! It makes it hard to do an “in the studio” blog post… So here are some sneak peeks of what I’ve been doing in my studio lately.

You’ll notice that these are all sewing projects- some machine (piecing, applique), and some hand (embroidery, stitching wool, English Paper Piecing (EPP) hexies)…. a little bit of everything! …..except…. painting…. I would love to get back to my paints soon! Oh it’s so hard to fit it all in…

Here is a beautiful project you will be seeing sometime this month or next, with some elegant metallic touches:

This is a “group” project I am part of- you will see this in June 2016. The theme is “blue.” I’ve enjoyed doing some embroidery using my new Aurifil embroidery thread- I love that it comes on a spool and doesn’t tangle into a giant knot like the skeins of embroidery thread tend to do:

Another “group” project I am working on, contributing to a “sampler” quilt (I know- more teacups! I just can’t seem to get away from them, lol):

Of course, I am continuing to work on the 2016 Block of the Month. Here you can see a peek of the machine applique, and the kit fabrics (Hometown Girl by Pat Sloan for Moda Fabrics):

And a little wool project which got put aside for a while, but now I really need to get it done!

…Work on my hexie project (just for fun!) continues whenever I have a free moment or two. There are piles of these large hexies all over the living room, waiting to be stitched together:

Finally- this project with RED hexies and redwork embroidery will be revealed very soon! (Hint- look for it on newstands soon…)

      A list is a good way to stay on track! And yes, of course, you must “consult” the list regularly, lol!

      I certainly know what it’s like to have a lot of irons in the fire- but I think that keeps you from getting bored :)

You have some beautiful projects going on and look forward to seeing your lovely work in the new year :)

    I just read your newsletter – so exciting you are going to be part of one of my favorite things every year! I look forward to all the blue blocks, but especially seeing this one with the adorable flower on it.

    With 10 great grandchildren, I am working on pillowcases for them. Just finished 4 in Minions fabric. Big boys will get surfboard and skate board fabric. Love all the interesting kid fabrics on the market. Also working on a quilt for a son’s 60th birthday (which is Christmas Eve), in patriotic theme since he is retired Navy. It just might be late…
    Love your blog! It definitely inspires me.
