This is a Great Project for Scraps!
Dig into your scraps for a set of hexie coasters. They’re easy to make and will be charming in whatever colors you select.
Go with bright and fun, retro, or anything else. The coasters look great in many fabric styles and color combinations. Match your decor, or make a set for a particular season.

The hexie centers are great for showcasing a lovely fabric. Or, do a bit of fussy cutting to accent special motifs.
You can also do a bit a big-stitch hand quilting, as in the following coasters from Sewing Room Secrets.
These go together so quickly that you’ll have several done in just a few hours. A set makes a lovely gift, too.
The tutorial, from Canoe Ridge Creations, does not specify how large the finished coasters are. However, they appear to be about 3 1/4″ from flat side to flat side.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
