I have bundles and bundles of fat quarters, most bought on sale at my local quilting store. I'm not saving them up for anything in particular. The right project always comes along, eventually.
Caroline, from Sew Can She, shows how to make Double Sided Embroidered Tea Towels. Each tea towel is made from two fat quarters. Hand sewn sashiko stitching with Pearl cotton helps them to hold their shape, not to mention it adds a lovely touch.
These would be great to quickly whip up for presents. I'd have to sew quite a few to begin to make a dent in my fat quarter stash.
Do you have a fat quarters that are sitting patiently waiting to be picked up and used?
