Coasting Along

Welcome 🙂

This week I spent a bit of time sorting out some of my little pieces of favourite fabric determined to make them into something. If you’re anything like me these treasures just get stuck in a scrap drawer and get forgotten about. So I was on a mini mission to liberate some of them and I decided to make some drinks coasters.

Some time ago on my old blog I made a few coasters using a hexagon pattern and I decided to use the same pattern (old blog post is here) again.

Anyway here they are,

I love this soft grey Tilda fabric – so pretty.

and that bird fabric was my one and only purchase from my visit to the Festival of Quilts last year – does anyone recognise it?

I made 9 in total and took one into work to pretty up my desk, the others will have their first use later today.

I’ve also been busy doing a bit more on Jane,

l13

L13 Harvest Moon – machine pieced and reverse appliqued. Some hand sewing with this one which was nice as I sat in front of the TV watching Strictly Come Dancing and sewed.

G1 Hattie’s Hen House – machine pieced and reverse appliqued just like the previous one. These two were very similar indeed, I wonder if when Jane made her blocks she used to ‘fixate’ on one method for a while before moving on to another, I suppose the trick is to make all those similar blocks together so you get good at the technique.

G4 Shutter Bug – This one is foundation pieced over one piece of paper which I found so much nicer than having lots of little pieces left at the end to sew together.

I’m now going to have a look through my collection of WIPs to see which one is going to get some attention this month – anyone know when a current project becomes a WIP? Maybe I can count DJ as a WIP now?

Until next time,

  1. I have no idea about when it becomes a WIP. I suppose anything you are actually working on can be labeled so. I do like your blocks – that Shutterbug Project is amazing! Love your coasters, too. Thanks for the link back to the older post.

  2. No, I don’t know about WIP either, but I tend to think Dezertsuz is right, that it is something you are actually working on! Love your coasters! Just been to visit the link to your previous post too, and some of your other links – great posts!
