My Shield - a free design for you...


As I shared yesterday I have a lovely new design to share with you today. May it inspire you to remember that the Lord is forever your shield, your glory, and the One who lifts you from the darkest times.

It's been a long time since I used my 'Oopsie Daisies' in a design...

Please share this blog post with all your friends. May they be blessed also with this free design.

You can download "The Lord Is Our Shield" HERE.
 
 Next Friday we will begin my new free BOM, "Shabby Roses Home"
Here's a little peek at Block 1...

This is a 10-month BOM, and I'm using fabric scraps in similar tones to make the entire quilt.
Search through your stash to find the colours you'd like your quilt to be made in. I can't give any exact fabric requirements as I'm not making it that way...it will just come together from a pile of fabric scraps and orphan fat quarters. 
All the blocks are stitched on white hanky linen and my colour palette consists of pinks, blues, greens, and mustard so far. 
 You've got seven days to build a box of fabrics you can choose from along the way, so enjoy that process!
Once you have the fabrics set aside, choose a few basic threads that will co-ordinate for the stitchery parts. I've used a blue, green, rose, pale gold, yellow, and mustard so far.

I'll share some more peeks next week and perhaps show the fabric pile I've assembled.

Have a restful weekend, won't you...
hugs

  7. So glad to hear that you are home, safe, refreshed and rested. I for one count you among my many blessings.
    Thank you for sharing your designs and patterns. I have two friends to share the Oopsie daisys with and two more to make the design as an encouragement and thank you for helping me with vacation bible school this coming week. Thank you for making my decisions so easy.
    Can't wait to start the "house" quilt. It looks gorgeous and fun. Have a wonderful weekend Jenny.

  9. This post is so perfectly timed for me. We had news yesterday that was stressful and shows a long hard battle is ahead of my husband and myself. The verse and cheery flowers made my heart smile....all other projects will be on hold until I can finish this as my daily reminder.
    Bless you Jenny and you generous heart.

  12. Thanks - a favorite verse and easily changed to my favorite KJV. I love the colors you've chosen, but I know I won't find those in my scrap pile. I think I need to look at threads first and then find fabrics that go with. =) Thank you for the new BOM. I'm looking forward to it! You are so talented and so generous. I'm already looking forward to the next magazine, but the BOM will hold me for a while.

  15. Thank you so much, Jenny, for your generous patterns...but most of all for the peace and comfort you remind us to seek in the Lord. Yesterday was a rather "down day" for me, but then I spent the evening reading quite a bit of the older posts on your blog and your faith in the Lord gave me a reminder to seek the peace I need. As always, the Lord is always there for us and I am much better today.

    Thank you again.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
