I first met Jacquelynne and her lovely daughter at Quilt Market last year. You might also remember having met her earlier this year when she sponsored one of our weekly contests too.
Jacquelynne’s first book, Fruitful Hands, is simply delightful. It contains 14 gorgeous projects including: machine appliqued wall hangings, wool felt floor mat, painted recipe box, stitchery and more. Also included are 12 delicious sounding recipes… I can’t wait for the weather to cool off so I can try the Orange Chocolate Chip Scones.
The photos and colour illustrations throughout the book are simply gorgeous. Here’s a sample page:
Download a free project and a recipe [PDF] from the book, Pineapple Welcome wall hanging and the Pineapple Bread Pudding recipe… yummy!!
A few more photos from the book:
Jacquelynne has donated a copy of Fruitful Hands to be given away to one of my blog readers. Additionally, I’ll also be giving away, to a second winner, an Aurifil thread sampler pack and a Lapel glue stick.
