Jacquelynne Steves

In The Studio This Week…

Friends- I am exhausted!! The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activity… getting the ebook out, and then getting an entire membership site up and running in about 3 weeks!! I really need a vacation… Saturday we decided to get away just for a day to one of our favorite spots, Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I always love it there, but there’s something special about it in the Fall!

We did a little shopping and hiking, and Alfie came along, too! He enjoys walking and hiking- It was a bit chilly in the morning, so he donned his pumpkin sweater- isn’t he handsome?

We hiked along a beautiful creek. We only passed one person the entire time, so it was very peaceful… enjoy the scenery and relaxing sound:

TODAY is the LAST DAY to get the Everything Patterns Ebook! Charisma used some of the patterns to make this beautiful little mini quilt:

And Linda was inspired to do some wool applique- I love how she added the beads for the leaf veins:

So remember- Today is the day! Get your ebook here.

In the studio- I’ve just finished up a project for 2017, which will appear in Quilts and More magazine! Here’s a little tiny sneak peek (when the project comes out, you will notice that the border is different. While I love that border fabric, the color just wasn’t right for the season- so I “unsewed” that applique, took the border off, added a new border, and redid the applique…)

I’ve been working on embroidery projects for the brand new The Art of Home Club:

And, here it is October and I realized that I never shared the September Blue and White Block from Aurifil. If you are unfamiliar, this is a free block of the month program sponsored by Aurifil thread. Each month, a different designer shares a new block pattern with you. Click here to go to the Aurifil blog and get the block pattern for September.

Here is my block that I designed for June, called Modern Delft, in case you didn’t catch it.

    I am loving my new e-book, transferred lots of patterns this weekend. Love spot for a hike and your dog is adorable. Just use that sweater and make him a green and brown hat then he will be a pumpkin.

    We love taking mini vacations to the Lancaster area also. Everything is so neat. It’s like they live in paradise. Alfie looks so cute in his sweater. Where is that hiking trail located. That’s exactly what we like to do besides the shopping that is. LOL

    Amish country in Pennsylvania is beautiful. I was fortunate to have visited there during a Quilt History tour. We stayed overnight in Intercourse. The Amish are so inspiring with their solid color combinations. I would like to go back there again someday.

    I love the Amish lifestyle. I would like to go to Pennsylvania and visit the Amish community. I would loooove an Amish quilt. You dog looks so cute and much loved. Hope you can find time to smell the roses.

    Hey Jacquelynne,
    Love your post… and Alfie is cute… the pictures are gorgeous! I have been working on various blocks with embroidery, one is your Teacup from a while back… but I struggle with how to get the embroidery pattern in my cloth. Would you mind to tell me how you get that nice light blue mark of your design on your material to embroider??
    Thank you in advance

    I have always found the Amish lifestyle fascinating. One of these days I will get to Pennsylvania to visit. Thank you for sharing your pictures. We spent 5 weeks on the east coast during the fall season last year and it was gorgeous.

    I love the sunflower. You always have beautiful work. I got my first Quilts and More magazine from my cube mate at work-as i was in the hospital this past week, and she brought me some reading material. I’ll look forward to the 2017 issue with your project. :) Enjoy the photos and updates thank you.

    I could sit and listen to the creek all day. when I was a kid growing up in Sacramento, CA., my parents shared a cabin with another couple and I believe it was the American River or Russian River than ran below the cabin. It was wonderful.

    I have had a sporadic quilting history of 22 years but life events happen so actually have quilted about 18 months.
    Maggie’s First Dance is my first appliqué experience. Love it.

    I have been quilting for five years. Love your blog and your site.

    I like all of you patterns and designs they are so pleasing to look at.
    I have been sewing for a long time.
    I just recently started to quilt.
    I enjoy seeing the quilts come together.

    I actually started quilting about 35 years ago, but I took a 20+ year detour, and just started quilting again about 20+ years ago! Now that I’m retired, I have time to stick with it! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    I am self taught and have been quilting for 10 years. Quilting is my sanity saver and much cheaper than therapy! I love the pic of your Alfie. We have two elderly chihuahuas who could care less about the out of doors, let alone walking! Thank you for all of your inspiring stories and darling projects. Maggie’s First Dance was so sweet. I hope to make all the blocks one day. I am currently holding myself accountable to finishing up TNTC QUIPS.
