lots of fabric, lots of love and

. . . .lots of thread

Made by a mother for her daughter.
What a beautiful gift.

The thread cup filled up quickly with this quilt.
It measured 112x122 and that is a lot of thread!

On the top of my machine I have a little cup for my thread tails.
I didn't like the look of the plain cup, so I made it a jacket.
It is secured with double stick tape from the bottom, it doesn't bounce off.

You can see in the the cup on the bottom and around the rim, I put carpet sticky tape.
This keeps the threads inside the cup. 

Happy stitching!
