Play with the Process to Make Coasters, Mug Rugs, Place Mats and More!
Fabric scraps pieced together any which way form the basis for this charming set of coasters. The coasters are easy to make and a great use for coordinating scraps.
Select a wide variety of prints and solids and piece them together to make a larger piece of patchwork. Cut your coasters from that and finish them off with batting and backing. They’re turned so there’s no binding to deal with.
The coasters can be any size you want, even as large as place mats. Find a saucer, bowl or other round item to use as the template.
They also can be any color combination. We love the luscious colors chosen by the designer and like how close in color and value they are. However, play with your scraps and create whatever you want. This is a fun process that provides endless creative opportunities.
The tutorial for the coasters designed by Laura from Sew Peachy is from The Sewing Directory.
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!
