I have been busy this week but don’t have any finished quilts to share.  However, I did whip up a quick project this morning and thought it would be fun to show you what I did.

Yesterday I was basting a quilt top that had a fair amount of threads on it. I baste my quilts in my kitchen/dining room and found myself picking off or clipping threads and putting them in a pile on a countertop behind me. Finally, it hit me. I need a thread catcher!

This is what I found to use:

Basting a quilt top

Isn’t that Rubbermaid bowl perfect? Well it worked, but I decided I needed something much more attractive to use. So this morning I whipped up this little cutie:

Thread Catcher

I like how bright and cheery my thread catcher looks and it will be so much more fun to use than the plastic bowl!

The fabric pieces are samples I picked up at the AQS show in Lancaster last month so I have no information on it. All I know is that it is too darn cute!

Don’t forget – the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway is still going on.  You can enter  my giveaway by visiting this post and enter others by visiting the Sew Mama Sew blog. Good luck!
