What materials did you use? Triangle leftovers from my Hometown quilt, walking foot with edge-stitching presser foot, Quilt-in-a-Day triangle square-up template

What are you most proud of? Even though the coasters were so small, most of the points matched up.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Everyone has scraps and making something out of them is worth the hassle of saving them.

Arlene C on craftsy.com

Indeed very delightful results from pieces most people toss away. I saved mine, and will try this later this fall once I get my sewing room set up again.

It is fun making something nice and useful instead of tossing scraps away.

how can i gett the pattern for those coasters?

Well, I am a pack rat . . . you really don't need a pattern. These were cuttings leftover from flying geese blocks. All I did was make half-square triangle blocks, trim them all to the same size, and sew together however big you want the coaster to be. Then I just cut batting and backing the same size as the front, sewed together right sides together, leaving a space on one edge so I could turn the coaster right side out. Then I sewed up the opening and did stitching on the coaster. There's really no right or wrong way. Good luck!
