so after I shared a photo with Kylie of a tea towel quilt the motivation arrived and I decided to make one of my own.
so here it is.. my latest handmade piece.
the great thing with this quilt is that you don't have to hack into those precious t towels. they are basically left complete and stitched together.
I backed this one with a thrifted woollen blanket (in the same colour-way as my vest) and made the binding from a coral-striped sheet.
i quilted it by stitching down either side of the tea towel joins. it's a fairly heavy quilt with the blanket backing so with my little sewing machine this was about all the quilting i could manage. it measures 128cm x 211cm.
i used all city and state themed t towels for this one and I'm already planning the next.. I'm thinking a calendar one.
do you have a favourite t towel up-cycling project?
