While I continue to work on my art quilt, I have stitched up a few quick and easy fabric boxes.
I found the instructions on Pinterest where they are officially referred to as thread catchers. But I don’t have any threads to catch, so they are boxes to me. I seem to have a bit of an obsession with tiny boxes.
This next purple one made the perfect tiny thank you gift when I filled it with Lindor chocolates and Starbursts.
I will send this next one off with chocolates also when the weather gets cool enough to not melt the chocolates while traveling.
They are pretty simple and fun to make even with all the hand sewing they require. I made the first one as instructed. But I thought it to be a bit flimsy for my liking. So I added fusible interfacing to one side for the next ones. Much better!
After attending the Madison, Wisconsin Quilt Show and picking up some new Halloween fabrics (like I needed more), and cute patterns for making postcards, I had to get started on Halloween fabric postcard greetings.
Now back to my art quilt..........
