My grandma, a 1950's homemaker, embroidered a set of dish towels. She had one for each day of the week. After years of use, she gave them to my mom, who tucked them away somewhere, not really sure what to do with them.
This year, my mom and I decided to turn them into a quilt. When I first started sharing this project on my Single Girl's DIY website, I was surprised by how many people told me that they had a set of these towels, too.
So, if you have a set of vintage embroidered towels hanging around, here's how you can turn them into a quilt your whole family can enjoy. (And if you don't have any, but still want to make a quilt like this, you can embroider your own!)
