Tea Towel Challenge 2014

Everyone is invited to grab an inspiring tea towel and join me in making a tea towel challenge quilt.  I'll be blogging about my process and inviting everyone to share theirs, too.  On this page, you'll find guidelines and tools and all the Linky Party check-ins.

Suggested Guidelines

  1. Your quilt must include a tea towel–it can be new or vintage.
  2. The colors in the tea towel determine the color palette for your quilt. 
  3. Try something new. Since this one is defined by you, it can be anything and is an opportunity to add your own personal guidelines to the challenge.

See this post about the group blog I've created for my blog-less friends.


I am going to use the tag #TTC14 on Instagram and Flickr for photos from my Tea Towel Challenge and here for blog posts about my progress. 

Timeline & Check-ins

I plan to complete my challenge in the first quarter of 2014–with these Linky Party check-ins:

End of 2013 - Decide to participate and commit
January - Tea towel and fabric selection
February-through-March In-progress report
March - May  Finished project show & tell

Each of the Linky Lists will also be added here, most recent on top, as they are published to put all the discussion in one place.

I think the most difficult step in this challenge is choosing the tea towel!
I am working on it!

Miki Willa said...

I have the tea towel selected so now all I have to do is pull the fabrics. This will be fun. Thanks for letting me know about it.

If you don't want fibres on your washed dishes and glasses you have to use linen tea Towels. But why are they so expensive? Years ago I was able to buy 100% linen toweling from the Czech republic and sew my own.

I know this challenge ended quite a long time ago, but I finished my project just now and I wanted to share! I really enjoyed the challenge and (in my defense) it took so long because I merged it with a 2014 BOM ;)
Thanks for the inspiration!
You can see the finished project at this link! http://tweloquilting.blogspot.com/2015/04/finishes-new-projects-and-link-party.html
