"Postcards From Heaven" is a collaborative effort by me and Jenny Reynolds, of Elefantz fame. We're tag-teaming designs - Jenny is January, I'm February, etc. Each month you'll get a free design to stitch, and our hope and prayer is that it blesses you as much as it has us!
My big goal for the coming year is to walk closer with the Lord, to grow in grace, to know Him better - and to remember His promises. This is such a fine way to do that! Jenny has made her design into a small quilt, while I'll be adding mine all together into a bigger quilt.
Jenny has all the information on her blog, so please click over and see! Click >>HERE<<.
I'm planning on doing all the designs in redwork. I haven't chosen my sashing fabric yet - normally I choose my fabric first, then the floss, but I'm doing things backward this time. One thing I'm doing a little different from Jenny, is that I'm using scripture from the King James bible. Also, I'm stitching a border around mine - to look more like a postcard in the bigger quilt that I'll be making. The frame will be on all of my patterns, you can use it or disregard it, your choice.
I've also chosen to stitch everything, while Jenny has left the small bits unstitched, but drawn on with a permanent pen. [Tiny bits to stitch can be intimidating!] I've used one strand of floss for the words, except "I" and "everlasting", one strand for the postmark lines, and two strands for everything else.
So while our projects may look different, they have the same heart. We wanted to show you, also, that you can make this project your own, use your imagination! Do send us your pictures, we would love to see them.
Also, don't forget, Jenny has another free BOM starting January 5th -
You won't want to miss that one either!!!
Happy New Year,
