Here is a closer look at all the hard work.
These coasters are super cute and very easy. The only real differences between the one I had and these are the one given to me is made with 5 inch squares and instead of using 4 fabrics to make the criss cross it only uses 3. Using only 3 lets you also use the coaster as a wine charm of sorts.
We made them both ways and really they are super cute and super easy.
Here is one with the glass tucked inside.
A view of how you can pick up the coaster and move it around with you, quite useful I think.
Today we went for a morning hike, lunch and then naps. Once up I really wanted to sew but I didn't want to wake anyone up which seems to happen while I'm in the sewing room. Those girls hear one peep from that room and they come running. When T woke up I asked her if she wanted to go to the store with me and I surprised her by taking her to one of my favorite quilt stores for her to pick out fabric for a quilt I think she can handle. T is age 5 and getting quite good with the sewing machine. I saw this quilt a few weeks ago and thought it was perfect for her. Once at the store I decided instead of jelly rolls I would just let her pick out 6 fabrics she liked and I could cut 2 1/2 strips for her. Once home I got to work and the pink/reds are cut and about 1/2 of the solid whites are done. I'm hoping tonight to get the rest done and then hopefully tomorrow we can start sewing!
This is a look at the fun fabrics she picked.
