Thread Catcher

I made another thread catcher this weekend and finished stuffing the pin cushion today. I found enough Kaffe Fasset selvedges in my collection and had solid lime green to go with this fun print.

This snippet catcher will be donated to the Canadian Quilter's Association Committee for the Quilt show being held here in a few weeks.

The thread catcher looks great...I love the fun green fabric.

I'm curious what you use to stuff the pin cushion part? Is fiber fill heavy enough, or do you put something else in it?

Very Pretty colors! I always laugh when I see the thread catchers because years ago, before I started quilting (many, many years I was a surgery nurse and we had thread catchers in our packs. of course they were just paper but they were made this same way and we put snippets of suture in them.

LOVE your thread catcher. Clever use of selvages!
