I’ve been addicted to making these cute little dish towels lately. The pattern is by Gail Abeloe of Back Porch Quilts and is super simple. In the process, I’ve learned a few important things about dish towels in the last few weeks:
- Plain white dish towels are hard to find
- Dish towels are never square, especially after washing.
- Two towels in the same package may not be the same size and neither may match the size listed on the package
Despite these challenges, I’ve had a lot of fun whipping these up. I made the first two sets as gifts and then decided that I needed a few for myself. This is a great way to use those novelty fat quarters that I love to collect and is also a good way to use fabrics that you just love to look at but can’t bear to cut up for quilts.
