Turkey Tracks: May 20, 2018
May 2018 Quilting Retreat Group Project
This is the project I took for everyone at our recent Coastal Quilter’s Mother’s Day weekend retreat.
Each person got one of the flour sack towels and 21 hexes with which to play.
The flour sacks can be ordered from Amazon. I paid about $18 for a set of 12. Amazon has some sort of algorithm that will up the price on you if you order once or look more than once, so be aware…
I had fun using some different paper piecing shapes–the pentagons, for instance.
The towels are large and very white and very soft. It’s fun to decorate them. I used a fine thread so the back remained pretty clean. You can bury knots of pearl cotton or embroidery thread under the hexes if you don’t want knots to show on the underside of the towel.
They are fun to use in the kitchen and the bathroom I think and would make great gifts.
