Block 9 Postcards from Heaven & bonus project!

It's my turn to share a postcard design this month and I chose Jeremiah 29:11 as my inspiration.
This is a very special verse for me, one that has carried me through the darkest of times and allowed me to trust in the Lord's ways above my own.

I love adding beads or buttons to my postcards and September's design is no different. Inside the basket of tulips and at the beginning and end of the wording you'll see tiny pearl beads.

Allie's version of this month's stitchery has the original KJV text (mine is written as a postcard/letter from our Father to His child) and is stitched beautifully as redwork. You can download Allie's alternate wording to trace here on her blog.
If her blog post isn't up yet, just check back in a few hours. 

The links to download all 9 of the free blocks shared so far can be found here on the BOM webpage.


My first eight postcards were made using the same fabrics, but this time I've used different fabrics and thread to create my postcard.
You see I'll be posting the previous designs as real postcards, though they will be safely wrapped inside envelopes, but this month I decided to feature my design framed inside a mini quilt, one that will hang in my office.

As I was making it I thought perhaps you'd like to make one too?
You can use this pattern for any of the postcards Allie or I have shared this year!


Both the postcard pattern and the bonus mini-quilt pattern are available as free downloads HERE 
in my shop from today.

May you be blessed as you stitch!


Due to a clash of dates with something I'm involved with on the 5th, I'll be sharing Block 9 of my Gentle Domesticity BOM here on the blog tomorrow.

Want a peek?

Beautiful!! I like how you framed it out into a mini quilt. I'm still not sure what I want to do with mine. I've thought about mini pillows. Thanks for being so generous!

Your post card is just beautiful.

Hi Jenny

Thanks for your generosity in giving the free mini quilt pattern. What a great way to display these beautiful Postcard blocks.
The Postcard block is so pretty! I love the colours you use in your designs.

Also love what I saw on the preview for the Gentle Domesticity block. So cute seeing the bird looking at itself in the mirror.

God bless you

Thank you Jenny. I love it! Blue is my favourite colour.

Thank you! Even though I'm behind, I'm still working on things. =) This makes three I have to stitch still. I love the verse, both ways. A sneak peek! Looks like another great design, too. You know how I love your birds. =) May you be blessed by the Lord as much as we are blessed by you.
