I love this idea!  I truly need this, better than my shameful raggedy towel.  Thank you for the tutorial. Kiss  Now off to wist! Grin

I made one too!

That fabric was originally intended for a car seatcover (among other car related projects) but I never got around to it. Figured I could make something relatively quick and small. The thing that took the longest was the stupid quilting. I like the end result though; thanks for the inspiration!

Very nice.  I found an online tutorial for a quilted dish mat recently and liked it a lot.  I like the way yours came out.. I'm thinking I need to make one for my mother inlaw.  She sets her dishes out to dry on a towel...

Nicely done  Smiley

What a quick, easy and fun  idea! I'm going to make a couple of those. You should see the ugly old towel  my mom keeps out for dishes. It's an old bathmat. She likes the weight of it.
I'll make her these, and that thing will go Bye-Bye!
Thanks for the idea!

<3 this idea. This a great solution. Like most of you I use a towel.  I think I have some Alexander Henry Fabric that I have been hoarding away for something..... thanks for the inspiration!!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

You rock for making this! When doing dishes by hand I've always used a dish drainer (much too small for my family's dish usage) or a towel (not aesthetically pleasing). This is such a great alternative!
