Pieced Coasters

I've been making coasters all week during tiny breaks amidst all my "spring cleaning". Another great scrap-buster project.



At first I wanted to quilt them in straight lines, but I just wasn't feelin' it.



Then I tried quilting in a squared spiral but I did not enjoy the final effect. It distorted my coaster and flattened it too much.



Finally, I decided plain and simple works best.



I added a few sets of these in my etsy shop. I hope you enjoy mis-matched things as much as I do.









And don't forget to enter my Blog Swap Giveaway if you haven't already!



I've got another great giveaway planned for tomorrow so come by and check it out! Have a great Thursday!

Linking up to these great parties.

  18. I love these! I made a bunch a few months ago (just for me and family) and I keep the ones in my favorite fabric at work so when I'm trying to meet deadlines I can look on my desk and feel calm. These would make a great gift!
