Since I want to practice the quilting process a bit more before I make a “real” quilt, I’ve been searching around for quick and easy tutorials. I found this one to make quilted coasters and, get this, I needed coasters anyway! I have a TON of scraps sitting around too, so this was a way to use those up and practice quilting.
It turned out well! I made 8 coasters – 2 of each kind of material. Honestly, they were easy, but not super quick. All in all, it took me about 3 hours or so to make all 8. Well, that included cutting and pressing everything. You know, when I started sewing, I had NO IDEA how much ironing is involved. It just never occurred to me. And ironing is a poopy chore. So if you’re about to start, keep that in mind.
Anyway, here’s a close-up of one of them. Note the stray threads that I still have to fix. Maybe I should just say not to look too closely.
