I finally got things put back in my sewing space and was able to get the binding put on a project that I have been working on for a few years. This project is pieced, with embroidery and applique. It was a pattern offered on Val Laird Designs. Here is it finally done! It's called Thoughts In Thread and Val's original was done in pastels. I had a large amount of brown and tan fat quarters in my stash and I am a more brown/autumn girl.
There are 9 embroidered blocks with phrases based on Philippians 4:8
The center square says " Fill your mind with these..."
the remaining squares have thoughts and a motif. Such as a violin and "true thoughts".
I did not do the quilting myself. I felt that I had put lots of hours in the embroidery and the piecing, it deserved the addition of custom quilting by a local artist. She is the best of the best!
I am looking forward to entering this wall hanging in our local quilt show next weekend. I will have pictures to show next week.
