God Bless Our Home motto

This GBOH (God Bless Our Home) is the most familiar style and saying of all the American GBOH motto designs of the 1870's - 1880's. This is the house blessing design that was most frequently stitched. The motto is charted to be stitched on perforated paper, as the original piece was, or on fabric. Antique White, Dirty Brown, or Vintage Country Cream from Zweigart are the best fabric colors for this design.

All of our mottoes are charted for stitching on perforated paper with traditional textured stitches, just as the Victorians stitched them, and for completing the design using Cross stitch only which can be worked on fabric and also paper.

The mottoes shown on our website were all stitched on our large custom cut sheets of 14 count perforated paper with traditional textured stitches. You can also stitch any of the motto designs using only Cross stitch on perforated paper or fabric.

The larger size sheets of paper that we sell were specially cut for Dutch Treat. The larger size sheets are now only available in 12" x 22" white paper.
