Tea Toweling fabric is a thicker texture fabric making it wonderful to stitch and appliqué on, as shown on the Lilly Pilly Runner above. This runner makes a great appliqué class; teaching an achievable project using needle-turn or fused appliqué techniques.
Picnic Point can also be used to make patchwork quilts. The thicker texture works best for quilts pieced with larger pieces to create a classic yet contemporary style. The Picnic Quilt is a perfect example of this.
Plain throw pillows are wonderful made from Picnic Point and can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes. Alternatively, the tea toweling fabric can be enhanced with appliqué as shown in the Saratoga Pillows pattern.
The possibilities of tea towelling are endless. Below are the Stitchery Stockings showing Picnic Point used for Christmas Decorations. The red Picnic Point fabrics would make lovely, festive table runners or placemats.

Picnic Point Tea Toweling
Living on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, I have been inspired by our great outdoors to design a range of Moda Tea Toweling named Picnic Point.
I have been using Moda toweling to make many different projects for a number of years. I love the texture for stitching and applique and the endless possibilities for using this fabric. This is my first range of tea toweling fabric for Moda and there are 14 Tea Towelings in the Picnic Point line made up of red, blue, white and taupe stripes. This range is available NOW, both online and in my store, and in a store near you.
Tea Toweling is a 100% cotton fabric that comes on the roll with the long sides already hemmed. It is a thicker weave than standard cotton fabrics and lends itself to many different projects and applications. I have used Picnic Point Tea Toweling for table runners, throw pillows, bags (the Avoca Tote below is new), quilts, aprons and kitchen accessories, home décor and Christmas decorations.
