20 FREE Fall Projects To Quilt, Sew & Embroider from Jacquelynne Steves

If you were to ask me what my favorite season is, I would say Fall is in my top 2. Fall puts me in the mood for cool-weather projects and colors, a cup of hot tea and a piece of freshly baked apple pie. In fact, I think the majority of people name Autumn (or "Fall," for those of us in North America) as their favorite season! It's definitely a season of "comfort"- comfortable clothes, comfort food, and of course, cozy comfortable quilts! If you love Fall, you're going to love these projects that we have gathered for ...

  This is one of my favorite times of my "work" year! Next week, we will be opening up The Art of Home Club to new members! Yippee!

Free Summer Couture Embroidery Pattern from Jacquelynne Steves

Do you have any special memories associated with Summer?   One my favorite and most precious memories is the adorable sun dresses and accessories, like matching pocketbooks, that my Grandmother and Mother would sew for me. I can still remember sitting in my Grandmother's sewing room, watching her cut and sew the patterns. You can reduce or enlarge this to any size you want for any project- it would be great on a tea towel, or so sweet as an embroidered embelleshment on a little girl's dress or pocketbook.

Strawberry Lemonade Table Runner Free Pattern from Jacquelynne Steves

Here is a sweet little project for you! While designing this project, I decided that pink and yellow is my new favorite color combination! Isn’t it perfect for summer or spring? I remember as a kid, that the unofficial kick-off of the summer season was going to a local “pick-your-own” field to harvest baskets & baskets of strawberries. Then we would come home and eat strawberries til they were coming out of our ears, and Mom and Grandmom would make strawberry jam. Those fond summer memories are brought back with this fun, refreshing project. Read More

Pinwheel Pin Cushion & Mini Pillow Tutorial from Jacquelynne Steves

Hi Friends!! Isn't this pin wheel pin cushion adorable! I made the pin cushion (4" square), and had so much fun that I decided to make a larger one to use for a mini (9") pillow! They were really, really quick to make, too, because I used precut fabrics. Just use mini charm packs for the pin cushion, or a regular charm pack for the little pillow. There is a fun folding technique to make the double pinwheel design- but don't worry, it's pretty easy, and if your points in the center don't match up exactly ...
