- a bunch of different selvedges
- 4.5 x 4.5 inch square of quilt batting
- 4.5 x 4.5 inch square of cotton fabric for the back of the coaster
- sewing machine and thread
Start by arranging your selvedges on top of the batting in the order you want them to be. Remember to take into account that you will lose about 1/4 inch from all sides once finished.
Sew each strip to your batting close to the selvedge edge (the side that won't fray) until the piece of batting is completely covered.
Trim off extra selvedges to the size of the batting.
Lay your backing piece on top of the batting right sides together and pin. Using your pressure foot as a guide, sew around your square leaving a 2 inch gap for turning.
Trim corners and turn right side out. Press.
Top stitch around the entire coaster close to the edge (making sure to close the gap as you go) and your done.
Now make yourself a cuppa and admire your new coaster.
