Fabric 2: 1 1/4 yards of 45-inch-wide coordinating printed cotton, for quilt back
Fabric 3: 1/2 yard of 45-inch-wide solid cotton, for binding
Hand-quilting needle(s) (I prefer size 10 betweens)
Wool batting, 36 by 46 inchesNote: If you use Quilter's Dream wool or cotton batting, your stitching can be up to 8 inches apart and the batting will remain stable. If you use another brand, check the manufacturer's directions for the maximum distance between stitches.
Some tea towels are too lovely to be hidden away in kitchen drawers. That's why using these linens to create pillow shams is such a wonderful idea. The tea towels are just the right size to cover a boudoir pillow, but since the fabric designs are unusual, the pillows add a very special touch to a bed or sofa.
Tea towel approximately 16 by 29 inches (If towel is smaller, use a narrower seam allowance; if it's larger, cut to size, and hem long ends.)
