Practice making patchwork while sewing these cute and practical fabric coasters.
These coasters are something I never seem to have enough of around the house. Obviously, you can use them under drinks, but they are also useful under house plants, in the kitchen under oils that tend to leak all over your cupboards, anything with the aluminum ring around the bottom that leaves a mark, etc.
They are easy to make and if you haven't made patchwork before, these are a great project to get started. These are how I started out with patchwork and I still use this same basic idea in almost all of my patchwork.
The pattern demonstrates how to foundation piece a classic Log Cabin configuration with free hand cut fabric pieces. Cutting the pieces free hand makes it go faster and is great way to improve your cutting skills.
They also don't need to be bound! How great is that??? While I love quilt binding, it is a pain to bind smaller items and even more of a pain to bind round things. So we'll just skip it to make these cute coasters.
Templates for 8 sizes of circles are included so you can make a variety of sizes of coasters.
Circles start at 4" and go up to 7.25" in diameter. The templates are also good to have on hand for other projects--no more searching for a small/medium circular object to trace!
This document is a printer and ink friendly 11-pages: 5-pages text with color photos + 6-pages of black & white circle templates.
