Tenugui and Quilts Japan #118

Quilts Japan issue #118 arrived at Kinukuniya, so I rushed over to pick it up.

The cover shot quilt is striking, and inside there are some very nice patterns. Some of them include traditional blocks as well as some twists on them including the spools block.

When I was at the bookstore, I picked up a "Tenugui". Does anybody else out there have experience using them? They are these sort of fabric-based business cards, and I did end up getting some when I was in Japan.

They consist of a piece of fabric that is 33cm x 90cm that can be used for a towel, hankie, headwear (in the olden days)...etc. I'm thinking they migh make some cool little bags or something.
