    Quilted bath mat

    Name:  bath mat.jpg

Size:  38.2 KB Here is one of the projects that I worked on this week and finished yesterday. I cut up a bunch of 2 1/2 inch squares from my scrap pile, the white squares are from my DH's old shirts. Sewed them together and quilted it to an old bath towel that I cut to size. I then added a scrappy binding. I love my new bath mat!

    I love it! Was only thinking today that I need to go through the linen cupboard and pull out the ratty towels. This is a great idea and I really need some practice FMQing so may be just the thing. Thanks for posting your beautiful bathmat and inspiring us to recycle.

    I am thinking of making quilted beach towels. I love this bath mat and it was so easy to make. A wonderful way to use up scraps.

    what a wonderful idea, we all have "those" towels in the linen closet, now we know what to do with them.

    What a great idea! That's what I call recycling.

    I love this idea and will give it a go, surely it would dry faster than a rug....
    I saw a great idea for a beach towel in a mag last year, carolaug. I was planning to make that, too. But I think it called for purchasing the terry cloth. Don't see why you couldn't do the same as for this bathmat. Thanks so much for this as I surely could use the practice FMQ, too.
