Quick, Easy and Very Charming, for Yourself or for Gifts!
Tea Towels, or towels for drying dishes, are often collected and displayed for their quirky charm.
These lovely towels with their decorative prairie points would be a great addition to any collection. Or, put them to work in your kitchen. Either way, these lovelies will add a nice spot of color to your decor.
They’re also a good way to show off some of your favorite fabrics. Go bright and cheerful, like these, or use more subdued fabrics for a more sophisticated look. The choice is entirely yours.
They are also wonderful in seasonal colors. Think deep rich autumn hues or fun Christmas fabrics. The towels make marvelous gifts, too, for just about any occasion.
The tutorial, by designer Lindsey Weight from Fort Worth Fabric Studio, is very easy to make.
If you like the look of prairie points but have been reluctant to try them, this is a simple project to start with. You can easily have several tea towels finished in a day!
Here are several more examples to inspire you.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
