Quilt Pattern Designer:  Jacquelynne Steves

 

Jacquelynne is the designer of quilt, wool, and punchneedle patterns. The name for her pattern company, The Noble Wife, is taken from Proverbs 31 in the Bible, which describes a woman who is a wife, mother, savvy business woman, seamstress and gardener. The “wife of noble character” also “opens her arms to those who are poor, and extends her hands to the needy.” This verse inspired Jacquelynne to make and sell hand made wool pins and donate the profits to a charity which gives sheep to poor families and teaches them to start a business. When asked if she is “the noble wife,” she replies with all honesty, “Some days are better than others!”


Question and Answer with Jacquelynne Steves

 

FreeQuiltPatterns:

What got you started quilting?
 

Jacquelynne:

I have tried just about every creative hobby- I have painted with acrylics and watercolors, sewn clothing, done cross stitch, and taken pottery classes. About 10 years ago, a friend of mine and I saw a sign for a quilting class, and we decided that it was a good excuse for us to get together once a week for some “girl time.” I have been hoarding fabric ever since! And now, because I design fabric for Henry Glass & Co. I get to combine my love of painting watercolors and fabric collection, which is really tons of fun.

FreeQuiltPatterns:  

What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t quilting?
 

Jacquelynne: 

 

I really enjoy just hanging out with my family- our favorite Friday night activity is eating pizza or Chinese take-out while watching a couple of rented movies. Nobody can make me laugh like my kids do- I find them to be highly entertaining!
 

FreeQuiltPatterns:

What is your favorite quilt related memory?
 

Jacquelynne: 

While my mom and grandmother both sewed clothing, I didn’t grow up in a quilting family. I didn’t know anything about quilting until I took that first class 10 years ago. But my grandmother and great- grandmother both did a lot of crochet… I remember sitting on the sofa next to my grandmother at her house while she taught me to crochet, and I have several afghans that my grandmother and great-grandmother made for me. A couple of them are over 40 years old.
