PROMISES of GOD stitch-along 24/25

 

THE PROMISES QUILT – 2024/25

A slow stitching project…

I’ve begun designing a new version of the Promises & Borders quilt I made and shared back in 2012, and thought you might like to slowly stitch along with me?

This first block(Micah 7:8) is the beginning, but as my intention is to make my new Promises Quilt a slow, unhurried project, the blocks that follow will not be shared on a weekly or monthly basis, but only when I am inspired to design one.

In my mind I think there will be nine blocks overall, each with a Scripture that declares a promise from God – which in these darkening times is an oft needed reminder of how close He is to us day by day, and not to fret nor be troubled, but to be assured we are never alone or without His help.

I’m using a bit of needle-turn applique, and hand embroidery to embellish each block. I chose the threads to blend with the fabrics I shall use for borders, most especially a piece of vintage curtain which I will need to use sparingly.

The first block has it featured as a border, and then I’ll probably add some squares for a second border, but may change my mind as the project grows. It is up to you how you border your blocks, and whether you want to house them inside a quilt layout or use them for individual projects such as cushions, runners, bags, or perhaps framed.

To keep informed of the new blocks as I share them it's best to follow my blog HERE, or subscribe to my free newsletter HERE which will be delivered straight to your email inbox.
