Quilted Coasters











I realised on the weekend that I needed some coasters for my sewing room. I had to put my coffee mug on one of my recently cut out paper shapes and thought it would make a suitable shape for a coaster. Well you know what happens...I made one, and was quite pleased with it and thought I should maybe have another next to the sewing machine and then one for my little pincushion...Lol! So I ended up making 3!

Mothers Day is coming up, and my Mum is getting so hard to buy for, so I thought I would make a set of the quilted coasters to put with her gift...maybe find some matching mugs!


I hope you are all enjoying your week

Peggy Vailati said...

I love all of your creations. They are soooo dainty. Just love them. Do you suppose you could make a tutorial on your items. Would like very much to see how you do it.

Khris said...

I don't suppose you can share the flower shape as a PDF or even a JPEG for bloggers do you? I would love to link you to my freebies blog but would prefer to have the actual "pattern" shape for it...thanks, Khris
