Coasters

Coasters are so easy to make. That is if you can follow the directions! I tried to make a set of coasters for a friend and I am really not sure what went wrong because I measured and cut according to the directions but ended up with very small coasters. I was doing a patchwork design and I was to make a strip using 4 different fabric scraps. For some reason beyond my comprehension, it did not work right. It came up short by 1/2 an inch. So I resorted to my own design and made these.


My friend loved them. I need to make another set for my own home and to have on hand for those last minute hostess gifts. Which reminds me, I need to make that journal cover tonight!

Ooooh, I like this idea! I would love to quilt, but I don't have the energy to tackle a big quilt (or the strength to sit up at a machine for very long). However, I have plenty of small fabric scraps, and I could work on making some small patchwork coasters by hand in my recliner. Thanks so much for the idea!!!

Well I am glad you found something you can do. It's always fun to make new things.
