Thread Catcher--Fourth Finish 2nd Quarter FAL 2019

Contents of thread catcher kit
At least five years ago, I purchased this little thread catcher kit when I was having a day out with my friends, Martha and Linda. After lunch, we stopped at a cute quilt shop that was closing because the owners were retiring. In addition to the kit, I purchased a few yards of a lime green batik and a white background fabric. I haven't cut into those fabrics yet. (I doubt that I will run out of fabrics to start projects any time soon!)

I thought that these thread catchers would be a great gift item to make for quilt retreaters. Several months later, I went to retreat and one of the gifts given were these thread catchers! I was a little late getting this project off the ground!

I really don't know why it took me so long to actually make this thread catcher. I think I spent $6 on this kit. It didn't take long to stitch. It is ready for gifting now!

This was goal number 18 on my 2nd Quarter FAL list. It is my fourth finish for the quarter.

I used a little more than a quarter of a yard.  I have stitched 49 3/4 yards of my goal of stitching 57 1/2 yards from my stash this year. I've seven and three quarters yards left to stitch to meet my goal!

It was a cute kit. . .the fabric choices made it hard to pick! I hope that it will be well used!!!
