What I fantastic blog I stumbled upon in my early morning blog reading. (I found you from the Quilt Festival.) My very first quilt was the pinwheel quilt from your pattern. It turned out perfectly and I wanted to thank you for posting that wonderful tutorial. This morning I hit the jackpot learning about your blog and am looking forward to reading backwards! I see you love family history -- you should check out www.rootsoftime.com. Have a great day! Ann

PunkiePie said...

Now I need more halloween fabric for the prairie points on my own towel! I have the waffle towel (blank) and I was going to embroider something Halloweeny on it. Those prairie points just set it off nicely. I need more!

sue said...

This are awesome!!! I going to Target today to see if I can find these towels. Thanks for the great ideas. I just found your blog yesterday and I already have four projects that I want to start working on. Your blog has already become one of my favorites.

LOVE IT!!! You are sooooo smart! I bought those same towels to give away in a "Boo Basket" that we do in our neighborhood and I am going to have to try really hard to find the time to get that beautiful trim on there before I give them away! Too adorable!!

Doris said...

Oh, Jodi these are just too adorable...I passed on one at K-Mart yesterday, I have to go back and get it and Jodi-fy it!

Millie said...

Jodi, what a neat idea! Love the dish towels with the prarie points. I would say that looks like a $25 dish towel to me...and not 2 for $2.50!

Sherri said...

Jodi...these are so cute! I. Must. Get. To. Target.!!! I'm thinking Christmas and Thanksgiving prairie points too!

blop said...

Now isn't that cute! Jodi, you come up w/some wonderful projects! Keep up the great job!

Aimee said...

Yippee! I have everything already on hand to do this-- those precious little charm packs I got from you and some towels I got on clearance from Target last year! I'm gonna do this TODAY!!!

Peanut Blossom said...

happy zombie said...

ACK... super duper cute, Jodi! Typing as I'm eyeballing the dishtowels in my kitchen...

How cute! My daughter is working on her Girl Scout sewing badge and this would be perfect for her (and a plus - she could create them as Christmas gifts!)

BTW - Marlene from Living on the Spit sent me over and I'm glad she did!

April said...

Such a cute idea to add the prairie points to a purchased towel. You are one creative gal!

Jenny said...

I love these! My grandma, who recently passed away, taught me how to do this edging. It's inspired me to make a few in her honor to hang up around the house for an instant reminder of her. THANK YOU!

AnnieO said...

Target and Kohl's always have such cute holiday towels for cheap and I love your prairie point personalization (say that fast three times :)) Thanks for the tutorial, very simply laid out for us pattern klutzes.

GREAT idea - I love it! I linked to this on my roundup of favorite scrap buster projects. Thanks so much!!

That was a really great idea! I practiced on one of our old towels. It's almost ready for the trash, but now it looks a bit better. I'm going to make one as a gift soon!
