Make Some for Yourself and Others to Give!
Turn your prettiest scraps into charming little coasters. They are so easy to make and a great way to use those tiny scraps that are too precious to discard.
They make lovely gifts and one or two can even be tucked into greeting cards. Plus they’ll be fun in whatever colors and fabric styles you have on hand.
Start by sewing scraps down to batting as you would with Quilt-As-You-Go. These are freeform so there are no specific sizes or shapes to deal with. Just add pieces of the right size as you go.
The pieced and quilted batting is finished off into a coaster by stitching the backing to it right sides together (use a 3/8” seam allowance), trimming, turning, sewing the opening closed, and top-stitching around the outside edges. Tips provided by the designer make it an easy fool-proof process to create smooth circles.
Once completed, the coasters designed by Kellie from Ma & Me Designs are 4 1/2″ tall x 4 1/2″ wide.
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!
