Now that I'm caught up with all the holiday have-to-do's, I'm able to focus on stitching just for fun.
I spent a few hours making a baker's dozen of quilted coasters for extra gifts and for our house.
I just sandwich scraps of batting between squares or rectangles of fabric and quilt in long lines, chain-stitch style. Then I square them up and zigzag around the edges. They finish at about four inches square, but they do shrink with the quilting, so cut them a little larger than the finished size.
And my little wool and cotton table mat found a place in the guest bathroom, topped with a tiny tree from my mother.
Have a colorful day
