A very quick finish

I bought this little memory box recently with the intention of doing something patchworky on the top.

 I cut 40 1" squares from my scrap jar and pieced them together, trying to pay no attention to placement of colours.  I put my little piece on wadding, quilted it in the ditch with invisible thread, and used 505 spray to adhere it to the little board.

 I use this box to hold these labels, which I use as thread catchers throughout the year.  I make hundreds of these for craft fairs around Christmas!
A really quick, cute and satisfying little finish!


  1. Too cute and an extremely great idea

  2. I have a box in my wardrobe - I may be borrowing your idea

  3. What a marvelous idea for using thread.
