These started out as mug rugs based on this tutorial:  http://www.pleasant-home.com/2010/11/scrappy-tree-mug-rugs.html, but I soon discovered that my quilting skills were not up to par, and these coasters were born.



Here they are all ready to give with some Adirondack coffee (and the one mug rug I did complete before realizing more were not going to happen):



And for fun, the matching "quilted" card:

Your coasters are pretty cute. . .  and a mug rug is just a large coaster, after all.

Thanks Eowynt. I think it's making sure everything lined up and the bias tape. I just wrapped the back fabric to the front for the coasters and it was a million times easier. I'll give them another shot when there's less pressure!

They look adorable - thanks for sharing.  I was thinking of making a Christmassy apron/kitchen goody set for MIL next year and this would be perfect for translating into a trivet or hot pads.
