I was excited to try one of the projects in Amy Butler's sewing book but was perplexed by the directions for these towels. I ended up changing the width, placement of loop, and application technique. Once I worked it out, it was a breeze. I did a bath towel and this hand towel for a friend's bird-themed blue bathroom, and I've stocked up on clearance towels from The Company Store with more in mind as Christmas gifts.

I started this project in January, thinking it would be a quickie. Not so, but worth the wait. Most of the fabrics are Amy Butler, with a few others thrown in here and there. Machine appliqued and hand quilted. Pattern is "Little Charmers" by Anka's Treasures.
