Thread Catcher #9

IMG_0371

Well I finished Thread Catcher #9!  Kinda sounds like a song.  You might think I have an obsession with making these…  Well, I do!

I actually finished this one in about 4 hours and it is one of my favorites thus far.  In August, I had to make an emergency trip to Douglas to meet my mother and brother.  I brought my sewing machine along to keep me company while I waited for them to arrive from WI/IL.  I needed to drive my Mom to a funeral in Grand Rapids for my Aunt Doris who had passed away.  I thought I might keep this one for myself.  It has the most beautiful periwinkle polka dot lining and bright green evergreen forest fabric on the outside.  This fabric was purchased at our day trip to the Chicago International Quilt Show earlier this year.
