FREE PATTERNS and more: Happy Home

Hello Friends, I hope you are well.  Take a look at these fabrics — they are from Quilting Treasures’ new line Happy Home – designed by Christine Graf.

The Happy Home fabrics remind me of a hymn I used to sing at church growing up… I haven’t heard that sung at church ever since I came to the States.  I miss singing it.

Happy the home when God is there,
and love fills every breast;
when one their wish, and one their prayer,
and one their heavenly rest.

Happy the home where Jesus’ name
is sweet to every ear;
where children early speak his fame,
and parents hold him dear.

Happy the home where prayer is heard,
and praise is wont to rise;
where parents love the sacred Word
and all its wisdom prize.

Lord, let us in our homes agree
this blessed peace to gain;
unite our hearts in love to thee,
and love to all will reign.

And I am using the fabrics (really loving them!) to make this quilt – the pattern is a free to use design offered by Quilting Treasures to feature their newly release Happy Home fabrics!

I also designed a table runner with the fabrics.

  4. Wendy ~ I grew up singing that song in a Methodist church in southern Maryland in the 1950s and 60s. Seeing it again brings back many happy memories of the hymn sings there.

    I love the quilt with all the houses. Thanks for pointing us to the free patterns!
