Behind the scenes I have been working away on this for about eight months, which meant plenty of designing, plenty of discarded ideas, lots and lots of delicious cups of tea, mountains of cake, months of hand embroidery whilst listening to audio books or watching re-runs of my favourite Agatha Christie tele-movies - and more prayers than you know.
In the past I have had two distinct club themes - one was Bible-based and very popular among fellow believers, the others had no religious tones.
This time I'm combining both, and here's how.
Included in the first year there is a 12-part block of the month, and you will have a choice of stitching either Scripture or a home-themed quote. At the end of the 12 months we'll combine all the blocks to make a quilt, and I've kept this simple because I think the verse/quote blocks should be the feature.
Here's how it will work. You have a choice of making either "Heart of Psalms" or "Heart of Home" blocks for your quilt - both versions will be included in your monthly pattern set. I won't be stitching both versions (at least not in the foreseeable future as I don't have time) but you may want to stitch both blocks each month and make two pretty and inspirational quilts.
Here's block 1 of "Heart of Psalms"....
For those who would prefer to stitch the "Heart of Home" blocks, in the bottom corner of the photo below you can see the quote and wording which sits inside the same floral block.
Both options are in your monthly pattern set, ready to trace, and each month the same thing will happen. For one quilt I'll have an inspiring verse from the book of Psalms, and for the other quilt I will have a lovely quote about home.
Here's the cover of the November issue of "Faith, Heart & Home"...
You can also pop over HERE to the Club page and join from there if you prefer, and as with any of my clubs, I understand life situations can change so you are welcome to leave anytime you like, with no penalties, but I hope you choose to stay and stitch with me a while.
Now that I've finally shared my secret sewing from this year and opened the doors for a brand new stitchery club, I guess regular newsy and fun blog posts can return to normal again. And friends, that makes me really happy.
Have a blessed day, and may your hearts overflow with gratitude as you look around at all you have, and the people who love you.
How beautiful Jennifer. These are absolutely breath taking designs....
Oh. My. Goodness. These are just STUNNING....honestly, girl, you have such a gift!!!!! Absolutely gobsmackingly gorgeous. I may lay down my floss for my own designs, but yours always give me the itch to stitch!
This is going to be a beautiful quilt. I also have the Brenda Riddle fat quarters I plan on using. I would like to purchase some extra fabric for the border before I cannot get anymore, but how much is needed for the border?
Hi Jennifer, You really outdid yourself on these designs. Very appealing. So much talent!
2022 is filling up with a lot of lovely projects !
How Beautiful Jennifer... I just had to sign up... gorgeous designs... can't wait x x x
Jennifer, this will be lovely. Thank you for sharing your God given talents with us.
I do have a question...to make this into a quilt, how large will the quilt be?
Thanks and blessings
Jennifer!! You and the Lord have given us such a delight for the eyes and for our hands! These are beautiful and all of your hard work blesses us beyond measure. Luscious is a word that comes to mind when seeing these and the fact there are TWO possibilities is over the top generous! Thank you dear lady. :)
Oh Jenny ... your designs are just SOoooo beautiful & your stitcheries take my breath away!!! How lovely these all are. xx
I'll have a blog post about this next week. :-)
Wow you have a wonderful talent that The Lord has given you! Thank you for sharing this talent with us.
Such a fantastic idea! You have put a lot of thought into this so stitchers have a choice of making 1 or 2 quilts. One can see that you have put a lot of time, energy and love into it. Your creativity is shining even more brightly bringing joy to others.
Thank you for the choices. Both are beautiful and spiritual. Our homes are spiritual foundations for our families, and holy places of safety.
