“Birds on a Limb” Wall Hanging

I have started my first quilt..ever.  I chose a Split Rail Fence pattern since it is very easy and a nice beginner quilt.  After putting the quilt top together, I found that I had some end pieces left over… so I cut them to size and put them together to make this…

On a trip to JoAnn’s to get the fabric for the edgings of the quilt, I came across a package of 12 spools of thread in different colors.  So I made this…

It’s a thread holder pincushion that is as close as I can remember to the one that my mom made for me for Christmas about 40 years ago.  It sure comes in handy when you are doing applique or anything else that requires frequent changes in the color of thread used.  Very easy and quick to make.
