So, I searched out coaster ideas and came across the cutest coasters. I got the tutorial from Jeni's blog here. I would love to get these for a gift. So, that's how they came to be.
Disclaimer: I used her cuts, but the placement of the pieces is different. It's not because I didn't like the way she did it, but I was awake super early and I didn't check the placement of my pieces. Things like this happen to me all the time. They are still cute. Terrie will never know. Shh...
Here's a tip section. I added some light/medium weight interfacing on the second set. It made them more sturdy. It only took me an hour to cut everything and sew it. Now, don't laugh at the slowness. I am sure that some people can almost get a quilt top done in 1 hour. Anyway, it was quick.
They were simple. I think this could be done in an hour or less really. The thing is I can never time how long it takes because I have to stop and let the dog out, fix breakfast, get hubby out the door. It's never dull, but I never get to run through a project without interruption. When the kids go back to school maybe that will happen. I can dream, right???
To me, the back is just as cute. Love, love this fabric. I know some people are loving birds, elephants, deer, or whatever. This is the one for me. I've had it awhile and my feelings haven't changed. That's true love!
Now, I am going to have to make some for my house. They will match the placemats too. Hey, I'm a fan of matchy matchy sometimes.
I hope she loves them. Thanks for stopping by and blog at ya later.
This is the second set, and I actually put the pieces where they were supposed to go. I guess I am awake now. ;)
