Free Pattern - Consider the Lilies Pattern 7

Sunday, July 17, 2011


It's free pattern time again - number seven in the Consider the Lilies Block of the Month design. This month we are starting Block 3.  This block is all about worry ... or rather some advice about

NOT WORRYING ABOUT TOMORROW!!!

Sometimes it's easier said, than done!
.............................

But there's plenty of advice in the Bible - Matthew 6: 31-34

Don't worry and ask yourselves,
“Will we have anything to eat?
Will we have anything to drink?
Will we have any clothes to wear?”

Only people who don't know God are always worrying about such things.
Your Father in heaven knows that you need all of these ...

Don't worry about tomorrow.
It will take care of itself.


Here's my favourite section of Block 3:


I really enjoyed making these pumpkins.  When I was designing this particular block, I had "designer's cramp" - I just couldn't find the right thing to depict the theme. All I knew was that I wanted something from nature. After a few days thinking and getting nowhere, I asked my DH for some ideas.  He said, "You need something like a field of wheat swaying in the breeze!"  Isn't he brilliant?!!  The moment he said that, it all came together in my mind.  The pumpkins and wheat remind me of God's rich provision.. We don't need to be spending our energy worrying about tomorrow.
 
 
There's an easy-to-make Shoo Fly block (don't you love that name!)

and a few squares and pieces around the edges: 

 
I hope you like this next instalment.

We're having a wonderful holiday, lots of bushwalking, bird spotting, and just plain relaxing ... and we have a good signal for our wireless internet this week, so I had no trouble uploading your free pattern!

Happy stitching!
