How to Make Four Square Quilted Coasters

These adorable 4 square coasters are simple and easy to make. You just need scraps of fabric and quilt batting. These quilted coasters make a great house warming gift or hostess gift to someone who is having guests over for a dinner party.

 
Use your pressure foot as your guide for your seam allowance for this project.

Cut 2 strips of two different fabrics 3" long. Sew the two strips together down the long side, pretty sides together. Press strips nice and flat.

With a rotary cutter, (if you have one) cut the two strips 3 1/4", eight times.
Now we are going to put two pieces together with opposite colors.
Place one on top of the other and pin matching at the center seam.

Stitch.

Press the top of your coasters nice and flat.
Cut out a backing and batting the same size as your top for four coasters.
Place the batting on the table first.

Then your backing pretty side up facing you.

Then the top of your coaster pretty side down.

Pin around the coaster going through all 3 layers leaving a small 2" opening where indicated by the finger in the photo.

Stitch around the coaster going through all three layers and using your pressure foot as your guide.

Trim seams and clip corners.

Turn coasters pretty side out where you left the opening, and poke out the corners so they are nice and pointy with a pencil.  The more pointy the corners are the more professional looking your coasters will be.

Top stitch around the outer edge of the coaster as shown in the photo.  Doing this looks professional, keeps the coasters together better, and closes up the hole all at once.

Add a ribbon tied in a bow around the four quilted coasters and some greenery and you are done!

Now you can give these as a gift or make tons more and sell them in a craft fair!
