I had to whip up an extra Swoon block...
I thought it would be nice to have
one block in patriotic colors and just put a border around
it for a table topper or wall hanging.
The new Fig Tree fabrics were perfect...
complete with cherries on the background fabric!
I got a nice little package in the mail the
day before yesterday.
It was this cute little pincushion that I ordered from
I have been shopping with Cheryl recently for a few
little gift items
but she also designs quilt patterns!
Cheryl does a fabulous job sewing these
little pincushions and thread catchers.
As you can see... I already put the thread catcher to work!
(it was a sweet little gift to me).
Although I enjoy my quilting work... I am not very good at
hand crafted items.
Really, it frustrates me.
I am positive that I could not have done
such a good job making these.
I really love the thread catcher, it's a perfect
size to keep next to my machine.
Thank you Cheryl!
