    Red face This comes in handy

    Check out this little thread holder - it came in handy when I took it to quilt class.

    The first one I made (with 2 1/2" strips) was too small and needed stabilizer. So I made another one, with 3" strips and medium weight interfacing. I like the second one better. I used the "edge joiner" foot instead of hand sewing the seams together. This was an easy project and fun to make.

    Thanks! Not too early to be thinking of small gifts for crafty friends! How long did you cut the strips for the 3" version?

    Cute - directions look a bit confusing, but will give it a try.
