Patchwork hand towels.

I've been playing with my scraps stash again.  I've done all I can with Ken's bike quilt, and am looking forward to Connie coming over on Tuesday and showing me how to quilt it!   In the meantime, I was surfing through Blogland (really now, who needs Facebook?) and I discovered on somebody's side bar a blog called Diary Of A Quilt Maven  I can't remember what else there was about this blog name to attract my attention, but I popped over there and found a cute tutorial on adding a patchwork embellishment to plain towels.  I have a heap of tea towels and hand towels in my stash - huckabuck, linen, cotton, etc. so I pulled out the huckabucks and followed Monica's instructions.  Aren't they nice?  Great way to use up some of those 2" squares in the box of scraps.

They look good Gina. Isn't it amazing what you can do with a plain tea towel!
