    First UFO of the year finished. This is a towel for the boat. I am undecided what to call this:
    a) One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish or
    b) Looking into the blue
    What do you think?

    It's lovely no matter what you call it. When you say it is a towel, is the back of it made of terry cloth? How hard was that to sew?

    Looks like a quilt to me! MUST know how this is a towel, what will be dried with it, or my brain will explode. It's too pretty to end up on the floor, ever!, and that's where MY towels end up. Dunno how, since everyone denies doing it, but that's where I find them.

    The back is terry towelling and there is no batting so I think it counts as a towel. I will take it to the Red Sea on our next trip to see the pretty fishes.

    It was a bit difficult to quilt as the terry cloth doesn't slide easily and I only have a very small domestic machine.

    If it's pieced and quilted, I would call it a quilt. If it has no batting, it's a summer quilt, but a towel!!!!!

    I did one towel many years ago, and remember putting down a piece of paper for the toweling to ride on to keep it out of the bottom. May have also put on on top, don't remember. I sewed slowly and kept it firm by holding it front and back as it sewed. But I do remember very well swearing never to sew toweling again. Ever.

    I love all the bright colors you used. I like the name "one fish, two fish...." but I grew up with Dr. Suess and it always holds fond memories for me.
