Hi there! I am so grateful for the legacy of creative women who came before me- my mom taught me to sew and cook, my Grandmom taught me to crochet and paint ceramics, and my Grandma Clare taught me all about gardening....
I like to cook and sew and make quilts. I like to paint pretty pictures. I like to browse in cool shops, lurk in interesting museums, and loiter in book stores. I enjoy a good, warm, comforting cup of tea. I do my best thinking while Im lying awake in bed at 3 a.m. when Im supposed to be sleeping.
I am an artist and illustrator, and I design fabric and quilt & sewing patterns for the quilting industry. I also write and illustrate books featuring creative ideas like quilt patterns, craft projects, and recipes. My blog is called The Art of Home, and it's about being creative every day.... because home is the perfect place to indulge our creative urges
My name is Jacquelynne, and I just like to make stuff. Come along with me, I would love to meet you!
I made this quilt for my husband's cousin when she was expecting her second baby. We knew it would be a girl but didn't know what name they had chosen, so the quilt became "For Ella's Sister."
It is very simple, and the wide vertical sashing strips help this project go together very quickly. Makes a great quick gift or charity quilt!
Of course, it can be made in whatever fabrics you choose: perhaps red, blue, tan and brown "For Bobby's Brother"??
Finished quilt is approximately 42.5" square.
