I would love to make this as gifts for people. Do you have a pattern for the coaster holder?

The whole thing is in the book " I love patchwork". But the holder is made using a square 2.5" bigger than the coaster. If finished coasters are 4", then including seam allowance you need a square of 6.5". Layer the material, batting, material right side up, then on top material right side down. Sew through all layers 1/4" seam allowance, leave a 2" gap for turning. Clip, turn and sew gap. Then edge stitch all way round. Now you need to sew a square of 4" in the centre. I used my rule and drew a line 1" from the edge and sewed that line. This will define the walls. Now pinched the corners together one at a time and tack together with thread. Hope that helps. They would make great presents, because they only took a couple of hours. Let me know how you get on

Thanks so much for the instructions! This I can definitely make. Thinking of making these for my first christmas craft show. I think I may pick up the book "I love Patchwork" also. I had a chance to glance at some of the pages on line and it looks like it has some nice simple projects. I will post a pic if I make this. Thanks again!

I might make more as well. They use up scraps and I even piced together the batting to make them!

Thank you. My living room is pale green with dark oak floor and pale oak furniture. The accent colour is fuschia pink. My hubby went spare when he heard what I was doing, but loves it now.
