I just whipped these up and they kinda look like quilts but VERY little ones Wink. I found this tutorial last year a bit too close to Christmas to get any made but I am starting early and I wanted to share.



They look like a regular four patch BUT NO they are really a folded four patch. The tutorial that Allsorts wrote is great with lots of pictures the only thing I did differently was make them 5 inch squares to start off with instead of the 4.5 she used. This will take you directly to her tutorial.

Have fun -- Less than 6 months to my handmade holiday.

Thanks, most of the fabrics are from Andover, they are part of the Whales and Tales line, which is based on Australian aboriginal drawings. I am making some other stuff out of it, napkins & trivets. I will post those as I finish the tutorial. These are my favorite colors and I am not sure this first set will get gifted as it is intended. Oh well, I will make more.

It is so simple, they are really nice coasters. I am thinking about a way to enlarge them for a trivet. I made a prototype yesterday but it needs work. Maybe I will get back to it tonight. Thanks, for sharing.

I love these coasters!  I make them all the time.  Whenever I make a quilt I take leftover scraps and make up a quick batch of coasters.  Then at the next holiday I give the quilt recipient a set of coasters to match their quilt!  (if I have enough scraps I will make a fabric bowl too)

The only difference is that I don't bother with the interfacing or the lining fabric.  If the 4 pieces of fabric on the top of the coaster are sewed tight enough tog you never even see the inside. Smiley  Then you can whip them up even faster!  oh, I do the 5 inch squares too.  Great minds think alike!
