I saw a triangle shaped thread catcher on several blogs this summer. I liked the idea of a thread catcher but I needed a bigger opening. I found the pattern for a square box from Tina Craig at Seaside Stitches posted in 2013. Lace-Lovin' Librarian shares the pictorial directions on her blog. I enjoy making these boxes. I used a 10 inch square of fabric from some Layer Cakes by Moda with a layer of left over quilt batting in between. 30's Playtime 2015 is one of the material collections. I cannot seem to find the label from the other one.
I found this Maple Leaf Motif (my #11 motif) from Tammy Rodgers aka GreenFuzzer from 2001. I have enjoyed making them and can make one leaf during the time it takes for half a foot ball game on TV. The one with the tail was my first and you can see that I did not make my joining picots small. I did it with the other two and it looks much nicer. Shall make two more tonight during the game. The thread is Lizbeth's Autumn Spice # 136, size 20.
