What are you most proud of? Making the bias binding - I've bound lots of quilts but never with bias.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't cut up yardage for these -it's amazing how little a scrap can be and still be used.

What a perfect use of scraps. Love them. It must be a nuisance to bind in the round- any tips?

The best tip Keitha is to cut the binding strips on the bias - they go around much smoother that way. Have fun!

One more question- is it single or double fold bias? Thanks for the inspiration.

I used double fold. The strips were cut 2" wide, folded in half, then stitched to the coasters with a 1/4" seam allowance. Hope that helps!
