Block 4 "Promises and Borders" BOM....and a show and tell.

It's the 3rd of the month so time to share the next block in my free BOM, "Promises & Borders"!
"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

 This is such a powerful Scripture to hold fast to in any circumstance! 
If you are making the complete quilt, this block sits in the middle of the second row.
You can download Block 4 HERE or HERE.
Hopefully if you have trouble with one site, you'll be able to access the other. If you still cannot download the block please email me privately.
Here are some previous blocks made by lovely bloggers!
SHERRY has finished block 2. I love the colours she has used...
ALO is a machine embroider and a little while ago she asked permission if I'd let her make my "Promises & Borders" blocks using that medium.  I was happy for her to do this for her own personal use.
(If you are a machine embroiderer and want to make my free blocks that way please email first to get my permission.)
ALO added her own quote to my Block 3 border...
...and used the bird and hearts portion of the border to decorate a tissue box cover!
This is why I named the BOM "Promises & Borders". I design them to be used completely 'as is', or for you to use the border and add your own verse or quote.
Have you stitched any of the borders and used your own centre Scripture, saying, or quote?

DEBBIE has finished Block 1. Doesn't the blue bird pop! Love it.
Carolyn's niece was getting married and she loved my 'Hope' design (read about it HERE)
She emailed to ask if I'd draw the word 'love' for her to use instead of Hope and promised to send me a photo when the project was finished. I was so excited to see it, and I think you'll agree too that it's a beautiful gift indeed!
Mr E is on school holidays, so I am enjoying having him home with me! I hope your week is as wonderful as mine and you get to spend it with the ones you love most.
