New version of Thoughts in Thread quilt and Block 5 of BOM

I have finished the remake of my Thoughts in Thread quilt! That's another lockdown achievment so I am very happy to have reached one more goal for this pandemic time!
This is another one of my designs based on a verse in the Bible: Philippians Chapter 4, verse 8 — Summing it all up: Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly—fill your minds with these thoughts.

Of course, there is plenty of lovely appliqué. 

and lots of embroidery.


I feel as though using this different fabric has done justice to the design at last.


You can find the pattern here

It's the second Sunday in May, Mothers' Day here in Australia, so happy Mothers' Day to all the lovely Mums out there. It is also time to show you Block 5 in the More Precious than Jewels BOM Quilt. 

Do you find yourself some times doing the dishes when everyone else is asleep at night? Well you are in good company! Our ‘good woman’ of the Bible works far into the night.

 I like to think she would have been looking through the supermarket catalogues to find the bargains. Maybe she bought a bucket of apples on special and is busy peeling, juicing, making Apple Crumble, sauce and jelly!

I have sent all the participants their copy of the Block 5 pattern. I hope you enjoy working all the little details as much as I did.


It's not too late to join in this Block of the Month Quilt, and you can read all about it and join the programme here.

I am slowly working through my big long list of things I hope to achieve during the pandemic. Things are starting to open up a bit more where I live, so I am a bit concerned I'm not going to even get half way through my list before life is back to some sort of normality!!!

Happy stitching!
