Coastal Coasters

Donna brought home a new quilting book and I really liked the coasters in there.    I like quilted fabric coasters (with batting in them) but using our Christmas coaster All Year Round was not working for me.

So I got go some sea glass fabric (for the center) and linen looking fabric (for the boarders) and made six coasters.    I just love the look of clean linen fabric.

The materials list included cotton batting and heat-resistant batting, but I just used 2 layers of cotton batting.

The book is “Improvising Tradition”, 18 Quilted Projects Using Strips, Slices, and Strata, by Alexandra Ledgerwood

These would make great holiday gifts, don’t ya think?

Happy Stitching,
