I had lots of fun this morning making these coasters!
So much fun in fact I thought it only fair to share how I made them, so here are my notes:-
Firstly I cut out six cirlces from my cream Kona solid and six cirlces of my fun print. I also cut six circles from a thin wadding. The circles were 5.5". I then used a gathering stitch and gathered the edge of the circle to pull the raw edges inward. I placed the batting within the bottom circle and pressed it flat.
I then did the same gathering on the plain Kona fabric and then placed it over the bottom so a small amount of the base was showing. I then pinned the centre.
After this I used 12wt Aurifil mako thread and did some fun big stitch quilting in the shap of a flower after I had stitched all around the circle.
And here are my finished coasters which I have posted to my swap buddy. I have some coasters on the way to me and they should be here next week, I can't wait to receive them.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday. Please leave a comment on how your Wonderful Wednesday I would love to hear!
Until then, have a fun day
