Darling Tea Towels

It's always good to make something quick and darling to enjoy or give away.
I love Prairie Points but haven't been ambitious enough to apply them to a quilt yet so what a great way to enjoy them quickly!

I ordered this dish towel kit from Fort Worth Fabric Studio and received the pattern but it is also free on their website, along with some other great free patterns and tutorials.
The Moda toweling is nice and soft and will be very absorbent.  I changed the pattern a little --the top strip, I left 5" (instead of 4") wide because that's the size they send and the bottom strip I made 2 1/2" wide (instead of 3 1/2").  I like the proportion and there's no waste.

After sewing one from the kit, I pulled out some coordinating fabrics.   I used Kona cotton to make the towel and think it will hold up pretty good, although maybe not as absorbent as the Moda toweling
This focus fabric has little fruits and jam jars -- for the person who loves pink, it would be very cute to give this with a little jar of homemade preserves! 
This summer floral would be a great gift combined with a cook book or oven pad and apron!

 These take very little fabric and each one takes less than an hour to make and what great birthday, hostess gifts, or just thinking of you gifts they could make!

Thanks for stopping by!
