    Red face Maltese quilts

    Several years ago when we went to Malta to visit my husbands family I wanted to buy some fabric with Maltese design. I was told they get their fabric imported and there was no specific design available so I purchased several teatowels from the local market. My sister got me in the habit of getting fabric from places we visit. I cut the teatowels up and just finished these two Malta quilts. I am pretty happy with them. Like to share.

    What a good idea. I always buy a teaowel from places I go. I had started using them but I could begin to put together as a kitchen table cloth.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Great idea! Love your color placement too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    What a great idea to do the Malta quilt with tea towels. And the Maltese cross in the middle is Absolutely Fabulous!
