I REALLY like the towels and I have the FQ Font book. Any tips and/or tricks you could share for creating them?? Too late to make them for our cottage stay this year but would love to make them for the kids for next year.


We found it easier to stitch just one letter at a time because the towel is bulky to maneuver. Trim and tear the paper off and then do the next letter. We trimmed a scant 1/4" from the stitching and then washed it to ravel and fluff the letter edges. If you use the big letters, up to four letters will fit across the bottom, and longer names can go along the length of the towel. Use the small letters for really long names (or do initials).


Terry,I received the book and pattern that I won in the Minnesota Designers Blog Hop. Thank you for generosity!
