    Quilted Reversible Bath Mat from Towels

    I needed a fun project this morning so I decided to try making a bath mat from a couple of my small towels. This is what I come up with.

    I like this! Did you use batting or just the towels because they are already thick?

    Thanks. I used 80/20 batting and quilted in with the walking foot on my domestic. I didn't think the batting would make dry any slower, might help if the towels are separated a little. We will see.

    Neat idea! And you can throw it in the wash without worrying about the rubber back coming off.

    Thanks for answering so quickly! I like the idea of batting in between--seems like it would make it look and feel more "plush"!

    I used the next size smaller than a bath towel. I cut the ends off where the place that always draws up is, then put the sides together and zig zaged through the side hem to attach the two towels. I layered it and the sewed about 1-1/2 up and will let the ends fray.
