With a 15-month-old running around the place, I didn't think tile coasters were a safe idea. I also think hexies are so cute, but didn't want to commit to a huge hexie project like a quilt until I knew whether I was going to like making them or not. Turns out, I LOVE THEM! They are so quick and easy to whip up, and perfect for carrying around to make when I'm out and about.

I hand-stitched the hexies, and hand-stitched them together. Then I whip stitched all the way around them (the backs are also hexies, and match the fronts). Last, I quilted the coasters with a sewing machine in matching thread.

Anyway, here are my quilted hexie coasters. This is my first time quilting anything, so I probably didn't do it "right," but I don't really care.
