This project was started about a year ago, then halted by running out of linen. Lots of the prints and all the trims came from stash.

Linen on the back for added structure and absorbency. Also, I just freaking LOVE LINEN!

And, of course, I have a few more started, but need just a little something to finish. Next year? Hopefully sooner, because I have some winter prints I want to use!

The toothpaste is my favorite, the DotD is great, and the skulls and crossbones are funny.  The pinecones fit with your decor, and the turquoise one is my favorite color.
nice work!

Serious question: do you ever sleep? You are so productive. Love your new towels, especially the pinecones. Oh, what am I saying...I like 'em all.

Thanks guys!

All of them are great but the toothpaste one cracks me up.

Isn't that a hoot? Heidi G sent me the link to that a couple years ago and I ordered 1 measly yard all the way from Japan. It was expensive, but I HAD to have it to go with my collection.

Ha! And thanks! I sleep a lot actually. What I don't do as much as I should is sweep... and similar activities. Ahem.  Roll Eyes And, of course, I've been stuck in the house for a few weeks because of the stupid wildfire. I don't feel like I can leave w/o the dog and it has been too hot to take her in the car after about 10:00 AM.  Undecided

It's so great, isn't it? I almost never buy fabric w/o a plan, but I couldn't help but pick up this as a fat quarter. Unfortunately the selvage on my piece isn't the one with the info. Sad I got it at Craft Warehouse in Beaverton, Oregon about a year ago.

ADDENDUM: I found a reference to this as a Riley Blake print.
