There are a lot of quilters around these days that use thread to enhance/embellish a quilt pattern.

Interweave has a short tutorial on how to imporve your "thread sketching" ability:

Thanks so much for this. I'm finding I'm more interested in this type of quilting than traditional bed or wall quilts and can use all the info I can find. I did buy a couple of good books.

One of my first projects will be a purse pattern I purchased today. It has butterflies and I want to embellish the wings with stitches. I like the idea that the decorative stitches can function as stitches to hold the layers together.
